Question about Computers & Internet

1 Answer

I have 2 problems both mac related Problem 1 I have been using Parallels on my Imac for some time. And have not been happy with it. So I decided to switch to VM Fusionware. I installed VM Fusionware on my imac. I got it up and running. Works good. I was going to install my windows stuff on it when I saw you could import your parallels content into VM Fusionware. So I did.Everything was imported exactly right loved it. Then later when I went to enter VMFusion it loaded the original installation.. not the one I imported. So I figure I have to VM running (3 if you count the parallels I left on my imac). I want to delete the first VM fusion and only use the second. The other is a problem with Itunes. I moved my 57GB itunes library to my Lacie External Firewire Dr. I selected in preferences for Itunes to loo on the LaCie. Even so all my songs have exclamation points and indicate the song cannont be found. Even though the library is intact. So I copied it back to my MACHD and now still have the same problem cant find the songs..showing exclamation points.

Wow... That is just bad Luck.
Your Files on Itunes are corrupted or just not there. i'm not sure how. your LaCie drive may have had a virus or some other such thing. try loading the files back on to your computer again, and make sure you put the files in the correct folder. one thing that worked for me when my itunes library failed, was when you copy the music files onto your computer, double click the the actual file icon, as if you wanted toplay them. this will tell itunes that the file still exists (and it may also play the song). your Parrellels problem is strange. i think that, like you mentioned, you may have to delete the previous VM installation, so to revert to the one you imported.
Good Luck...

Can this work on an i mac


Depends on what you need to do for "work". If its all Microsoft related (IE Outlook, Word, Excel) there is Office for Mac. Office for Mac though isn't 100% compatible with standard Windows versions of Office. if you need full compatibility and functionality, I would say ran Parallels. This will allow you to use your mac, as your normally do, and also Windows abilities at the same time.

How to run MS Windows on a MAC computer?


Hi guys,

Today I will show you how to run the Windows operating system on your mac laptop or desktop.

Step 1:
It is a simple process but will require some software which you will need to download and please make sure you have enough storage minimum should be 6 GB for the windows setup to install otherwise it will NOT work.

Step 2:
Ok first of all you will need to install Parallels Desktop which works like VM-Ware but it is for MAC so its different it ritualizes both of the OS so you can choose to use both on your mac without the need of Boot Camp.

Step 3:
It is very simple you will just need the Windows ISO file or a disc copy. Than what you will need is Parallels that you can get from the following site: http://pctrickstips.com/download-parallels-desktop-11-for-mac-full-free/

It supports both x86 and x64 environments so do not worry about anything else if you need any further help ping me up and I will be more than happy to help.

Happy Virtualisation ;)

<span style="font-weight: bold;">Problem: My Mac Does Not Work With VantagePoint</span><br /><br /><span style="text-decoration: underline;">Possible Solution:</span> If your Mac does not work with Vantage Point, please try this technique.<br /><br />Please try to use "Parallels". Parallels will allows you to use your Mac home as the Windows home. <br /><br />In your configurations for the Virtual Machine in Parallels make sure that the default is set to use your Mac home for the Windows home folders.<br /><br />You need to uncheck the shared profile so that Windows has its own home directory. You can now run 10.6.2, Parallels 5 and Windows.<br /><br />This solution also works for Mac OSX 10.4.11 - Parallels 4 - VP 1.60<br /><br />JG

How do I transfer my Tree Maker files from my PC to my iMac.


Family Tree Maker has a Mac version of their software available on their website.
This link also provides some possible solutions for your situation for converting PC version to Mac.

http://ancestry.custhelp.com/app/answers/detail/a_id/3916



If you have any reason to not switch to the Mac version of Family Tree Maker, or have other PC software that may not not be available for Mac, there is an easy solution for this as well, but does require purchasing a copy of Windows. You can install Windows as a second operating system on your Mac to support those applications not compatible with Mac. This can be done using the built in "Bootcamp" utility on your Mac. This allows you to boot to any version of Windows or Linux, as well as your Mac OS. Another method is to install "Parallels" for Mac, which also allows you to install multiple operatings systems, but with the added ability to Mac OS X and Windows simultaneously.

Installing Parallels should not change the way your optical drive works.

Try resetting the SMC as per the following article:

If that doesn't work, try resetting the PRAM:

If these do not resolve the issue you will likely need repair.

I have and I mac and I cannot run any exe files!!


Files with the suffix ".exe" are executable only under the Windows operating system. If you have an Intel iMac you can run Parallels software and actually install Windows side by side with the Mac OS and then be able to run ".exe" files in their native environment. Generally, downloadable program files for Macintosh have a ".dmg" suffix which is a disk image file which contains the actual program. After mounting the disk image on the desktop (by double-clicking) you can then copy the program file inside it directly to your hard drive via click&drag and then run it from the hard drive.

Just got an lg ge20 not working on mac


I wish I could tell you that your Mac is compatible with the LG GE20 20X DVD Burner but unfortunately it is not.

Here are the system requirements for this burner
LG GE20 20X DVD Burner Technical Specifications

The CD included is not the only item that is not compatible with the Mac, it is also the DVD burner itself. It is only windows compatible I'm afraid.

However, I do know that the Apple.com online store, has a comparable DVD+RW burner, the
LaCie 22x d2 DVD+RW with LightScribe
which will work with your iMac.

This is a genuine incompatibility issue.

If you had an Intel iMac, there actually is a workaround process where virtual machine software, like VMWare Fusion or Parallels, could be installed, with a version of Windows XP, Vista, or 7, display as a 2nd terminal within a Mac OS X desktop.

What's makes this effective, is that the LG GE20 could work with a windows virtual machine and because software like VMWare for example, can share devices, including optical CD/DVD drives, the Mac could share that drive with the windows virtual machine.

But since you do not have an Intel iMac, unless I am reading the description of your Mac computer(Apple iMAC Mac Notebook) incorrectly, the LaCie burner information, I provided above, would be the best option for your model of iMac.

Again, if I have described your model of Mac incorrectly let me know and I will be glad to assist further.

Regards,

-Mactechtrainer
