    This week I haven't been able to get the windows applications to show up in the alt-tab application switcher.

    I've been through all the settings, am I missing one?

    Also, after an hour or 2 of use, the mounted virtual disk unmounts itself. Is there a way to force remount the windows disk to my desktop?

    Of course, I meant the mac os x cmd-tab app switcher....not alt-tab.

    Hello Camflan,

    A mounted virtual disk is not supposed to get unmounted itself. You can try using Shared Folders in your VM Configuration Editor to mount it back. And you should probably update MacFUSE to get rid of the issue.

    When did exactly Command-Tab applications switcher stop working? Did you install any software before?

    Best regards,
    Xenos

    I have been on the latest macFuse, problem still occurs. Cmd-Tab stopped working last week, the only change I can think that I've made to the vm is that I have stopped 'sharing' apps between the OSes.

    Camflan, will Cmd-Tab work again if you enable Shared Applications option?
    What PD build are you using? What are you Host and Guest OS? Mac model?

    Best regards,

    Sorry for the delayed response. Yes, re-enableing the shared app option did restore cmd-tab...is there a way to have this work without shared apps?

    I'm on newest PD build, as of today.

    MBP 2.2 SR/Merom
    4GB RAM

    Leopard 10.5.3, all updates
    Windows XP SP2, all updates short of SP3
    Latest MacFUSE...still having disk unmounting issues.
