    Is it possible to Transport a VPC5 (Connectix) Windows 2000 installation (running under MacOS9) to Parallels 3.x?

    When I try, Transporter does not recognise the disk image file . . .

    Connectix upgrade req'd

    I think you have to at least upgrade the Connectix images to VPC7. My images over time have made this transition, and it would seem to work - were it not for some bugs in Parallels keeping me from finishing my transport. I still even have the chain of upgrade CD's from 5 to 6 to 7. I am not sure if they are still available from MS. Of course you need a power PC to do this on - mine was a pismo.

    Transporter improvements?

    Thanks for your thoughts. It seems fairly unlikely that I would be able to upgrade the VPC5 image although I do have both PPC and Intel Macs.

    Does anyone have any other suggestions?

    Is Transporter ever likely to be able to support a VPC5 image?
