    So I've been trying to get GMATPrep working in Parallels/WinXP SP2. With the old version of Parallels the program would boot up, but then give an error that I traced back to DirectX when I would try to do anything.

    So I figured the new Parallels 3.0 would solve things. But no dice- now I don't get anything but a plain empty gray box upon starting the program up.

    Can someone else install this program and see if it work on their system? The free d/l link is here;

    I'm on a Macbook Pro 1.8 Ghz/1.5 GB Ram.

    Thanks a bunch, Matt

    Did you try to enable DirectX support in Configurations->Video?

    Yup- first thing I did. And it went and installed the new drivers and everything. No dice.

    I want to see if it'll work on anybody else's parallel's install.
