no not since I got off the beta stuff
may be twice in 6 months then
Well, I specifically stayed away from the beta's and upgraded when it went GA (3186) from 1970. Now I am getting spontaneous crashes. Again, no beta's between.
This definitely irks me.
I'm not surprised. First I didn't think that "most" people experiencing crashes with 3186 had run betas prior. Just like I don't believe that 3186 crashing - for those who did upgrade from a beta version - has anything to do previous those betas leaving any remnants or "bad files" or whatever you want to call it...nor do I think that upgrading any programme from a beta version should pose any problem. This is all bull if you ask me. Stability has been a growing issue since 1970, plain and simple. And as for as I am concerned, if you don't have that basic quality in a computer programme, you don't have a product.
Any luck with 3188?
Count me in. I'm just like Steve, I avoided the betas completely and upgraded directly from 1970 to 3186, making sure to upgrade the tools as well. I have now crashed twice in 3186, just quits completely, no warning at all. It NEVER crashed in 1970.
I will send this to support.
I have experienced 3 kernal panics and at least two sudden shutdowns.
The only common thread that I can see is that I was starting up the VM in coherence mode.
If I start up the VM in windowed mode, it seems a lot more stable, even if I later switch to coherence. I am not sure if this is the solution, but I'll stick with it until I see a better idea.
I upgraded from 1848 directly to 3186. I have not noticed any problems in any mode except that the start menu does not work from the dock icon. I upgraded (today) to 3188. In each case the upgrade went smoothly, I was prompted to update the Parallel Tools, and the apps all seem to work well.
Most of what I do is database and web application development so I only run Windows browsers for testing purposes. I can't say that anything has crashed more often on my Mac than on any of my Windows desktop PCs.
I know this doesn't help solve many peoples problems, but I can attest to a stable 3186-3188 platform.
paralles quit and I lost few applications forever
Since I installed 3188 parallels quit and the runnig application with it. I have to reinstall this application again. The best version was built 3170 and i regret to make the proppsed upgrades. My ram is just 312Mb and when I want to increase it the system told me 312 is the max. I have 2Gb ram on my imac
i'll appreciate some advices
What do you mean by manual uninstall and reinstall? Is this different than uninstalling from Add/Remove Programs and installing from the Actions menu of Parallels? Also, how do you turn the auto coherence mode off, and how do you restart it?
3188 shutsdown on me
