    Warning fix is no good...

    WARNING: I have tried this fix a few times, and the system becomes unstable and eventually CRASHES. Best to stick with single monitor mode until this bug is fixed --It is a royal PITA.

    I am not so happy to report that with this release, not only is copy and paste still not working, (anyone home at parallels on this?), but the o/s is very unstable when suspending. I run Visual Studio constantly, sometimes several instances. *Almost* consistently, after suspending and re-awakening, the system runs horribly slow. Each new operation i do, for example, opening a dialog, switching to a text editor, switching to a form design etc, takes anywhere from 3-10 seconds. For anyone who uses a computer more than once a month, you know how intrusive this is.

    Hello,

    Does this mean that a new VM created with 4.0 will be faster than one upgraded? Any reason why?

    Fixed

    Happy to report that the latest release fixes this problem (boy that took a long time to get fixed).

    With Parallels Windows XP will be running on a "Virtual Machine", this means that OS X will be running like normal with Windows XP running inside a separate application, in effect two operating systems running at once.
