    Hello,

    I have a rather old accounting program which only works with windows 95/98 not 2000 or XP. It also requires a dongle which is a sort of key that is placed on the parallel port of the computer to ensure anti-piracy compliance. If I test Parallels for Windows can I expect this solution to work.
    What I'm asking you is merely to save me time : if I install Win98 + the accounting program + ringing up the company that produced the program to provide a software key, only to find that Parallels doesn't like the dongle, well I would prefer to hear you tell me this first ;)

    I don't see the reason why this shouldn't work. But I either can't be 100% sure it will work in virtualized environment.

    So you should try to be 100% sure.
