    But I don't know why it's working. I didn't really do anything. First thing I knew, I had that window asking if I wanted to restart WindowsXP after updating, which was apparently automatic because I wasn't even there when it did it. So I restarted (the virtual pc). Then surprise, everything worked. I can go online, Meditech/Telnet is working fine, at a much greater speed than VirtualPC used to.
    I connected my old USB printer. It was immediately recognized and printed fine, to my complete surprise.
    Let's hope it will last.

    Congratulations. So I guess the quirk was from Windows as far as one could tell. Welcome to Windows :-( . Too bad we have to live with this inferior OS.

    Great !

    Glad it's all working for you now, even though we don't know what was causing it.

    :)

    I'm glad to hear that MEDITECH is working ... this could potentially save me from lugging around the IBM ...

    It was lovely while it lasted. A whole day!
    Now I can't even get online again. My Lan connection is working, but Diagnostics is telling me that my "Parallels Network Adapter" failed.
    Very frustrating...

    Curious - are your using ethernet or wireless?

    Both, but it's ethernet right now. I have no way to check wireless at work. It worked with Ethernet yesterday.

    The saga continues. Rebooting the PC didn't do anything, but rebooting the whole Mac restored connectivity (the Mac part was working fine to start with).
    Go figure.
