    Appear to be problems, at least with a winXP guest. For example, if I try "java -jar glassfish-installer-v2-b41d.jar" (glassfish from https://glassfish.dev.java.net), a dialog comes up without any content, and the install does not continue (see attached screenshot).

    This happens with both jdk 1.5.0_12 and 1.6.0_01. Since the main reason for me to use Parallels is so that I can demo/ use jdk6, this is a bit of a showstopper. :(

    The previous build of Parallels (3188?) had no such problem, at least with Vista.

    Regards,

    In one of the installation steps page, the commandline has an additional parameter:

    % java -Xmx256m -jar filename.jar

    I hope this works.

    Not a Parallels bug - glassfish installed fine for me on an XP guest. Have you tried Lamski's suggestion?

    Yes, I'm aware of the "-Xmx256m" suggestion: however, that actually is not required for v2+ of glassfish.

    Just to make sure, I tried it, and had exactly the same results.

    buzzdat, was your successful install with v2??

    Regards,

    You probably have DirectX support enabled, try disabling it.

    OK, turned DirectX off, and it worked. Weird.

    Thanks and regards,
