Hello, I installed parallels yesterday. I have a Bootcamp partition with windows XP home edition installed on my MacBook Pro. I run the VM through the Bootcamp partition. Yesterday I managed to solve the Windows reactivation problem with a script that replaces the wpa.dbl file. A reactivation was required to do so. Then, Office asked for reactivation (dammit!), same problem. This was solved changing the MAC address of the VM Ethernet device to match the real address of the NIC. After all this, Norton Internet Security says: System status: Trial Period Expired. Activation Needed. What the hell?. I tried to find a solution for this and Iâ€™m still looking for it. Does somebody had the same problem ? Did you manage to make it work ?. Any help is appreciated. Last point, Visual Studio .NET. It doesnâ€™t work, activation required also. In the worst case, Iâ€™ll reactivate it over the VM, since Iâ€™ll use it on my MAC environment, but a solution to make it work under both Bootcamp and VM would be great. I find parallels amazing, itâ€™s beautiful. But, how can you actually say it is compatible with Bootcamp if you are forced to deal with all these problems after the installation. Parallels donâ€™t provide solutions for all this mess, or at least I didnâ€™t find any. Anyways, Iâ€™m disappointed because I never imagined that Iâ€™ll be forced to deal with all this. In the Parallels web site: Parallels Desktop for Mac Features -> Powerful and Efficient -> Updated! Support for Boot Camp. Iâ€™m sorry but, in my opinion the reactivation problem needs to be solved somehow before saying that it has support for boot camp. Thanks guys for reading this, and if you managed to solve any of my problems, please help me!
