Parallels Resolution Issue while using AutoCAD

    I have recently installed Parallels Desktop 9 for Mac, I have a Macbook Pro 15" Retina late 2013 model running Mavericks
    The only program I have installed so far on Windows 7 (Using parallels of course) is AutoCAD 2013, when I use AutoCAD's tool "Circle" the Circle's look like Ellipses,
    I've played around with the resolution, and even having it on windowed mode and I've come close to making it look like an actual Circle but it's still not working.

    Somewhere I've read that it was an issue with the Widescreen compatibility with Parallels but I'm not completely sure.

    If anyone can collaborate in any way it'd be greatly appreciated.

    Thank you

    Hi FavioD,

    Please follow the steps as suggested at in order to change the resolution and resolve the issue.

    Also try changing the 3D acceleration to use the Autocad by following steps below;

    Go to Configure of VM ( ) > Hardware > Video > 3D Acceleration > change Direct X10 to Direct X9
