    I would love to install 10.5.7, but I can't afford any danger to my Parallels installation or time to uninstall/reinstall.

    Has anyone updated Mac OSX 10.5.7 yet?

    And if so, did everything working smoothly and flawlessly?

    Thanks,
    d

    I've installed 10.5.7, and most everything seems to be running ok. I am still having another problem with Parallels, though, that began before the install of 10.5.7. When I have a particular Windows app running in Parallels and then switch over to a Mac app, the Windows app no longer responds and hangs up. The app works fine as long as I stay in Parallels, but if I switch -- crash!

    Oy. Clearly you shouldn't use that app. *kidding!* Best of luck.

    Thanks for the news that 10.5.7 seems "all clear". I'm always nervous about major system software updates.

    What version of Parrallels do you run, BTW?

    < Parallels 4.0, updated, noticed nothing different.

    Kind Regards

    There are problems

    So far I've had 2 problems

    1) permissions on my secondary drive were stuffed up, so Parrallels would run my VM's even though Info showed me as having read/write permissions. I needed to ignor permision on that volume to get it to work.

    2) Keyboard layout is now acting differently. i cannot access the shift, alt, control and Command keys. This made it impossible to log onto the Vm or work effectively. I haven't found a solution to this yet, anyone hit this one?

    Thanks
    BRETT
