    Recently upgraded to Mac OS 10.6. When I tried to install PD4 it complained that my bootcamp VM was in suspended mode and that I should fix this. When I launch PD3 it complains that it can't run on Mac OS 10.6.

    I don't really want to reinstall Mac OS 10.5 so is there a way that I can shut down the bootcamp VM or create a new one without affecting my bootcamp partition. I still like to use bootcamp now and then.

    Regards,
    Simon.

    Hello,

    Go to the following locations and look for the old virtual machine folder.
    Inside the old virtual machine folder look for any files that ends with am extension .mem or .sav and delete them and then try to run the installation.

    How about putting this advice as a 'sticky' as it seems to be cropping up quite a lot?
