    I recently upgraded to Version 3.0 of Parallels Desktop for the Mac. Now, my old eComStation 2.0 virtual machines fail to run. The VM stops loading at the point where the device driver os2lvm.dmd is loaded.

    I've noticed this behavior before in previous versions of Parallels Desktop, but the problem was avoided by having the VM boot from an attached CD-ROM or CD-ROM image. Now the VM simply refuses to boot at all.

    I've had to revert to Parallels 3.0 to get my old VM to run.

    Any ideas on how to fix the problem?

    Responding to my own posting here....

    I've found that eCS 2.0 will now install correctly in Parallels 4.0 on a Mac. I tried a fresh install on a new hard disk, and everything went smoothly. The VM is now running correctly.

    Note that this is the first version of Parallels on the Mac where eCS installs.

    is the clock working properly? On my OS/2 installations, the clock hangs. This was a problem with P3 and still is with P4.
