At the suggestion of one of the other posters in the forum I attempted to reinstall PD 3.0 without first uninstalling my first attempt. (On a MacBook with VM = WinXP Pro). One problem seens solved by the reinstall: the screen resolution reverted to what I had no the old 'build' which was fine. However I still cannot access the internet from the VM which was my main purpose in running the VM in the first place. The 'Network Status' as shown in the OS X prefs. page shows 'Built-in Ethernet' on along with 'Parallels NAT' on with an IP address. 'Parallels Host-Guest' is 'red' and it says "The cable for Parallels Host-Guest is connected but your computer does not have an IP address and cannot connect to the internet". I am totally confused. I access the internet from the Mac side without difficulty. Any and all assistance would be gratefully appreciated as I am clueless.
