    For work I must run Microstation v8i SSE3, everything work fine and it also quite fast, but once problem is there: Shade mode in visualisation style not work. When I turn this option display freeze - not redrawed / artefacts occurs. I try set VM Configuration > Hardware > Video > 3D acceleration to DirectX9 and this help, with this setting it work, but ...microstation is much much slower. Shade mode is important for me, because Venturis (add-on) it need for fine output...

    Currently I'm upgrade to PD11, on "old" installation of W8.1, no change, still not work. Tried also clean install of W10 and it's same here also...

    After today morning (16/10/2019) update parallels stop working shademodes again. It "works", but they are just BW. Not color. I send this info to support. But have anyone similar problem? Wireframe modes run in color. But all "filled" mode is just B/W.
    Color is from yesterday. BW is after morning Update.

    Juraj, with Microstation running and showing b/w drawing please submit a problem report (https://kb.parallels.com/en/9058) and post report id here.
    As an experiment, add "video.metal=0" (without quotes) to VM Config > Hardware > Boot order > Advanced settings > Boot flags. Will it make a difference?

    Hello JurajM,
    We released an update for Parallels Desktop 15 which resolves the issue you reported. Download it and update Parallels Tools afterward to resolve the issue with Microstation app.

    It works. Thank you. Problem was? But It's quite slower, when I have loaded 2D references, when I unload it from model, speed increased up. But overall is PD15 in my case slower, than PD14 in microstation.

    Hi, the report you mentioned is for Parallels Toolbox - please check this article for a fix https://kb.parallels.com/124770

    Did Parallels Tools crash as well? Fail to install, show any error message?
