    I would like to run vmware workstation 5.5.1 (for Windows) on Parallels build 1970 hosting Windows XP Pro. Is it possible?

    This is a testing situation since I don't have a Windows PC machine.

    The reasons are .... Parallels is a Emulator. You can play around with naming conventions all you want ... but it is still an emulator. You do not have direct access to the Mac h/w under Paralles.

    VMWare requires direct access to the hardware (Just like VPC and Parallels do).
