Parallels Tools Build 6.0.11992 Apps freeze in Winxp

  1. I am using Parallels Tools Build 6.0.11992 on a Macbook with 10.6.6. I can open XP but when I try to open any application it freezes and I have to force quit XP. Is there a way to stop this or to downgrade to an earlier build?
  2. Curious as well

    Hi,

    There is so much negativity around 11992. What I find is that Windows XP suddenly freezes for several seconds or on some reboots is extremely slow. I can backup the VM sector-by-sector using Acronis. The issue would seem to be that the image would still have the tools associated with 11992.

    What I would like to know is, if I backup using acronis, downgrade, create a new VM, and restore the backup to it, will I be able to boot to XP given that the restored image would have the newer tools. As long as I can, I would then install the previous version of the tools.

    Regards,

    Gordon
  3. Restoring Backup Solved Problem

    I restored everything from a recent Carbon Copy Clone and it is working. I have no idea why but I am not going to look a gift horse in the mouth. I am guessing I had some kind of file corruption.
