    I tried to install Quicken 2007 inside a Windows virtual machine running in Parallels Desktop on my Mac, but everytime I attempted to download transactions using Direct Connect from my bank, Quicken crashed. I didn't have this problem when running natively inside Windows XP. Also, I have the same problem if I download the OFX file from my bank's website and try and import that into Quicken as well. Just as an FYI, I created a Windows XP VM in VMware Fusion and loaded quicken and everything works fine.

    I'm trying to evaluate VMware Fusion against Parallels, but not being able to download transactions into Quicken is a showstopper. Has anyone else experienced the same problems? I haven't been able to find much information about this event online.
