    I have been using Parallels on my MBP 2.33ghz (4gb Ram) with my Bootcamp partition for a long time. Today, I tried to launch Beta 5158 and it wouldn't do anything. My launch bar icon just bounced a few times and stopped. I tried rebooting... nothing. I ran disk utility, and relaunched, nothing... and then disk utility, reboot, and nothing.

    I then decided to remove (per Parallel's troubleshooting instructions), uninstalled, then removing all directories mentioned after a reboot, then another disk utility, reboot and then again, nothing when launching except a bouncing icon for a few seconds... then again nothing.

    HELP... I'm stuck.

    By the way, my Bootcamp setup reboots from startup without problems.

    Any ideas? I've even tried Onyx to see if it will find any errors....

    Please try launching Parallels Desktop from Macintosh HD - Applications - Parallels folder, maybe you need to update the Dock icon.

    I dont understand how this can affect application launch when the application path hasnt changed.

    Doesn't do a thing.

    By the way, in order to access the XP installation, I just installed VMWare Fusion... it works...

    Please help me get this running.

    By the way, my comment about VMWare working was NOT a dig... I prefer Parallels greatly and wanted to make sure my WinXP partition wasn't corrupt - it seemed like a good way to check. It does work fully.

    Parallels: Any other suggestions??
