crash after windows logon
I kept using 1908 since the 1910 was crashing me after windows logon, but i though i'll giv a try to this 1918.
well, no luck.
after i logged in to windows in 1-2 secs the whole parallels just quit. without warnings or anything. i have some crash logs. i'll try to attach it to the post, or post it on my site.
he console log usually writes that
but sometime it writes an additional line, complaining that a pointer was freed twice, so someone has a potential malloc bug.
Parallels Desktop 2.2 Release Candidate 2 critical error! Send log file ( /Library/Parallels/bugreports/parallels-fault-234010.280806.2182.log ) to email@example.com

i did not want to go back to 1908 so i started investigating.
after the latest crash, i've created a new VM with my previous HDD, but i've added only the disk drive.
it booted successfully, so i started adding back the hardware. when i added the soundcard, after logging in, poof!, parallels crashed.
i suspect windows tried to play the login wav, but parallels doesn't like the tune. ;]
my mac is a standard 2.66 mac pro, 2G of ram, nvidia 7300, nothing special.
the VM is a windows 2003 with 832MB memory, but without parallels tools. befeore upgrading to the latest build i unnstall the tools. (i'll try maybe it doesn't crash with the tools installed.)
