Why Should you get Parallel Desktop for Mac



A lot of PC users are watching closely on the growth of popularity on Apple products. Parallels Desktop for Mac provides an awesome alternative - running Windows directly from within Mac OS X.

The developers have tried to create as seamless an experience as possible, incorporating features like Coherence, which let you open a Windows application from the Mac OS X Dock, and SmartSelect, which lets you open Mac documents with Windows applications (and vice versa).

The benefit of this is it is now possible to run various program like Windows XP or Vista on an Apple Mac computer.

With the Parallel Desktop for MAC, it now enables Apple MAC user to use Windows, Linux, and more side by side with MAC OS or any Intel Powered MAC without rebooting.

There’s a lot of benefits Parallel Desktop has to offer and these includes opening windows file with MAC Application and Mac files with Windows Application using parallel SmartSelect. Share files and folders between Windows and MAC.

It’s now possible to browse windows folder and access files without launching windows with Parallel Explorer. Even running selected PC games on Mac with supports to 3D graphics.

These key features give a lot more convenience to Apple Mac users. Imagine running windows like a native Mac application without rebooting.

Parallel not only gives you free-floating Windows apps in its Coherence mode, but it also drops the Windows Taskbar atop the dock (or you can move it to the top of the screen, under the Finder menu bar).

The Parallel includes a set of utilities that lets you do all kinds of interesting things. There's a migration tool (Parallels Transporter); a program that lets you browse a virtual hard drive without actually launch Parallels (Parallels Explorer); a program for managing the size of virtual disks (Parallels Image Tool).

New to a recent upgrade is SmartSelect, which lets you associate file types with applications on the guest operating system.

For example, if someone sends you a Word document via Apple Mail, you can use SmartSelect to designate the Windows version of Word to open the file when you double-click it.

You can also reverse this, so double-clicking files in Windows causes them to be opened in Mac applications. Even for PC gamer, this has been a big breakthrough because for gamers, the biggest advantage Parallels Desktop 3.0 offers is the ability to run games.
Almost all games in the PC space require 3D graphics acceleration, even the casual ones, and up to now, Parallels has not had any 3D graphics acceleration at all.

My camera is not working.it says in use by another application. I dont know which application is using it actually none of those apps are turned on.How can i fix it?


It is possible your Startup files contains Skype, VID, PhotoBooth, or some other program that hijacks your webcam. Even if you don't have those programs running they may keep you from using a different application. You will have to manually go through any type of program that could use your webcam and turn off the camera, and/or remove those programs from your Startup menu.

How do i turn my min webcam


Your webcam should come automatically whenever you launch a video application (Skype, Yahoo, Debut, etc.). You can test your webcam on the free webcam test site to make sure it is working, and then simply use the program of your choice. PhotoBooth is great for the Mac and Debut works great on the PC.

Photobooth not working


The easiest way to fix this is to reload the application by inserting the Mac OS disc that came with you mac. Once you reach the startup desktop, you can choose "custom install" and simply reload the applications. You don't have to reload the OS, just the apps..

Program loads, flashes on screen then disappears.


Delete (or rename) the preferences file for this application, and then try launching it.

What is the program? That should have been specified in the original problem request.
