    Vista Ultimate on Parallels 4124

    I've managed to get the Windows Experience Index to run just once (before I enabled DirectX). It reported:

    Processor: 4.3
    Memory: 3.9
    Graphics: 1.0 :(
    Gaming Graphics: 1.0 :(
    Primary hard disk: 5.9 :) yay! maximum score!

    I enabled DirectX in an attempt to get better graphics performance but the WEI won't run. Sometimes it gets part-way through, mostly it quits before it gets to media playback. On at least one occasion, I saw this failure:

    Bug in Parallels? Fact of life?

    kinda both... its caused by the fact that the DirectX implementation is older than the version Vista expects to find, I believe.

    I saw in another thread that Aero support is not in 4124 but is coming in a later release which is good enough for me.
