Windows On Mac :: Wants To Update Fusion Or Fusion McAffee

Jul 13, 2009

When I boot Fusion with MacAffee I get a message that there is an updated version of Fusion is ready for download. When I go to the site I'm offered a choice of just Fusion or Fusion with MacAffee. Since the boot message only talks about Fusion should I do the only Fusion download. Or should I get the combined one?

I made an image of my Windows XP laptop drive using Macrium. I can see the image file there on one of my Mac Pro's internal drives, but Im not able to select in Fusion.. Is there a way to make a Fusion VM from this image? If not, how do I go about creating a VM from my laptops's HD? I'm using Fusion 2.6.

OS X V10.7 Lion :: VMWare Fusion 3 Won't Run After 10.7.4 Update

May 10, 2012

Yesterday I updates Lion to 10.7.4. 

Today I went to run WinXP under VMWare Fusion 3 and got the following errors: "Unable to retrieve kernel zone size" "Failed to initialize monitor device." "Cannot find a valid peer process to connect to" It won't start. 1. Can I roll back 10.7.4 to 10.7.3?3. Can I re-install 10.7.0 on an external disk or partition and run from that? Then I could recover some files from WinXP.  (Last backup of WinXP is a couple weeks old).Other?

Feb 19, 2010

I use it to run Win XP on the bootcamp partition on my BlackBook at work.ow I'm getting frequent Firewall pop ups (in OSX) asking about vmnet natd inbound connections? I can either select okay or after several windows (pop ups) have appeared, they will disappear again seconds later of themselves.I select allow each time. I've removed and re added VMWare Fusion on the list of allowed apps in the OSX Security Advanced Firewall panel.

Windows On Mac :: Moving Windows 7 From Fusion To Boot Camp Without Losing Files And Software?

Oct 24, 2009

Last night I installed VMWare Fusion and Windows 7 on my Unibody MBP running SL. When I use Fusion, my computer slows to a crawl. I spent a few hours getting Windows set up and installing software last night.

I would like to try using Boot Camp instead, but do not want to lose all of the software and files that I have installed. Is it possible to set up Boot Camp, and keep the same Windows setup?

Windows On Mac :: Both Fusion And Parallels On Same Machine?

Sep 14, 2010

I currently run Fusion on my iMac but I really would like the try the new version of Parallels that came out this week.

Will I mess anything up by installing the demo version while still having Fusion installed? Of course I wouldn't run both at the same time, just have both installed.

Windows On Mac :: To Have Both Parallels / Fusion And Bootcamp?

Nov 11, 2010

I read that for gaming, Bootcamp is the way to go, but for other general Windows use, Parallels or Fusion is the way to go.

But for me, I am planning to play games - hence Bootcamp - as well as use Parallels/Fusion for general use, namely to use Microsoft Office Onenote (an unbeatable note-taking software that needs a Mac version yesterday).

Is this even possible and how much memory will the additional parallels take (I'm planning a 40gb bootcamp partition btw on a 250gb hard drive)?

Mac :: Fusion Windows 7 X64 And Quicken 2010

Dec 2, 2010

I have an iMac 3.06 with 4G. The machine runs great and can't believe how nice it runs Windows 7 x64.The only reason I have Windows installed is for Quicken 2010. The odd behavior I'm experiencing is running the Quicken update to automatically download your Quicken portforlio, bank txns, and stocksOn Windows, this updates takes less than 1 minutes. However, on the Mac side is runs for several minutes. The weird thing is the progress meter for each one of the 3 update steps acts like it's get suspended. After 5 or 10 minutes I will close the update window even though it says it's not completed, reopen it and everything is where is last was, but indicates updates are complete.

Windows On Mac :: Using Function Keys Within Fusion

Apr 1, 2008

Does anyone know how to use the function keys while in Fusion? I'm using Autocad and need functionality of them while using it within Fusion, but they activate OS X functions. This, and enabling "pan" with the middle mouse button, rather than dashboard, seem to be the last two hurdles before I can fully use the Mac for my work.

Windows On Mac :: Bootcamp And Fusion - X32 Or X64 - Run Smoother?

Feb 9, 2009

I have a few questions and I just grabbed a 13in 2.4 alu (Yep I�m a new switcher) First off, just wow on the Mac I love it to death coming from a PC, It�s great to have something that doesn�t feel like a plastic toy in my hands�! So my goal is to Boot Camp Windows 7 + Mac OS X, I have yet to upgrade the RAM on my unit so it�s still at 2GB (waiting for my work to start carrying it) and I�m also using Fusion 2.01. Now the Question x32 or x64? Which would run smoother under a Virtual Machine from within Mac. I know in Boot Camp 64 would be the obvious choice especially when I upgrade to 4GB but will Fusion pose more strain to the system emulating 64 or would it be no difference towards 32?

Windows On Mac :: Install Win 7 To Bootcamp Via VM Fusion ... Possible?

May 11, 2009

I have currently XP installed in Boot Camp and I have Vmware fusion installed in OSX. I can boot my XP partition via vmware fusion. Now the question is, when I boot the XP via vmware, I can boot from a Win 7 DVD and the installation starts. Can I just go on an install it in this way? The thing is that I'm not at home and only have a VNC session to my mac, so I can't install it in the classic way which requires a reboot

Windows On Mac :: Shutting Down Vs Suspend VM Fusion?

Jun 10, 2009

When I installed VM Fusion and Windows XP (2) on my 13" MacBook I was told that I could exit Windows by selecting "suspend guest" from the drop-down menus, but when I do, I get a humungous "click triangle", and it sits there in the center of my screen until I click on it . . . . which boots up Windows again!
The only way I can close Windows is by going to the Fusion menu and selecting "shut down Fusion".
Also, I notice that I can't always activate or click on the Mac menu bar at the top of Windows to see those choices. In fact, when it does appear, it appears rather 'ghostly' and maybe only half of it appears - and is completely without function. When I jiggle the mouse pointer around awhile, it may appear, then I can shut down Windows.

Mac :: Installed W7RC - Windows 7 RC Via Fusion

Jul 14, 2009

I installed W7RC and VMware fusion did everything for me. I remember when I installed XP I had to put in my OSX disc to install drivers to make certain things work...? Do I need to put my OSX disc in with the RC and Fusion 2.0.5?
Everything seems fine but I'm not familiar enough with windows to actually know.

OS X :: Installing Windows 7 RC Through VMware Fusion?

Jul 29, 2009

I have the Windows 7 RC .iso (it's 64bit, I should have that one, right? Macs are 64 bit not 32 bit?) file and I want to install it through my VMware fusion app. Please note, this is NOT the beta for Windows 7, it's the newer RC.

How in the world do I do this? Some online guides say to set it as Windows Server 2008 x64, others say Windows Vista 64.

Could someone take me through the process of installing it? Or link me to a video or proven article? Setup goes through usually but the next time I boot into Windows 7 it tells me there was an installation error and Windows could not find the startup disk.

I have a Mac Pro 2009 2.66 quad with ATi3870 and 6 gigs of ram. I used to run a boot camp Win7 RC partition with first Fusion 2 and then 3. It worked fine. Now I bought Win7 Ultimate and I'm getting ****** graphics performance in Fusion. The screen updates slowly. When I move a window there's noticable tearing. Fade effects don't really show fade but a few fading frames of the animation.

I have Windows 7 installed in VMWare fusion. Is there a way to directly boot from that installation into non-virtualized W7? Would bootcamp or something be able to read and boot from that installation?

I want to boot directly into W7 for gaming. The virtualized performance isn't really cutting it.
