Re: parrallels

It sounds like you need to install the drivers for the Windows Vista to recognize the camera that is built into the Mac. As crazy as it sounds, Windows doesn't recognize the installed hardware, and you need to tell Windows that there is a camera "connected" to the system. You should be able to download the drivers or create a drivers file from the Mac OS. Then save them to a CD and upload them when you're within the Windows environment.

Re: parrallels

Have you thought of running the Mac version of messenger?
You can also try to update parallels to the latest version. If it is not in it, you will have to wait until the parallels team fixes it.

Re: parrallels

I would suggest you look in to Apple's Bootcamp. Although you do not want to run in a dual-boot configuration, Bootcamp allows you to create a CD with all of the Mac's windows drivers.

I appologize but I am not totally sure if 1) the Bootcamp drivers contain a camera driver and 2) if the camera works at all within Parallels.

Worth a shot though.

How to install ubuntu linux apple macbook pro notebook

Safest option would be to purchase a specialised virtualisation software product like paralleles Parallels Desktop 9 for Mac The 1 choice of customers worldwide to run. OR Fusion

then download an .iso which is a cd image of Ubuntu

the LTS version of Ubuntu stands for long term support, the version that
will most likely work on your mac will be the 64bit version.

I would suggest using a virtualisation program rather than replacing the
mac operating system so that you can be running both mac os and ubuntu
at the same time, without having to shutdown one to access the other.

Hopr this helps.

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:

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 ;)

How can i download stuff on my macbook, it says cannot run dos mode, and chinese letters what should i do so i can dowload imesh ?

Unless you have installed a Windows emulator like Parallels or Bootcamp, you cannot easily run .exe files on your Mac with a Mac OS. It will not run dos mode in Mac OS.
You can:
1. Install an emulator.
2. Try Winebottler. It's in beta, but it creates stand alone apps for Mac OS 10.6 from Windows apps.

Mac OS will run some Chinese characters. It is available as a language pack directly from Apple's website, including Simplified Chinese, Traditional Chinese and Korean.

Installed Parallels on mac but cannot connect to the internet.

When running your mac in the windows mode, insert your mac os dvd into the drive. It will launch the program to install all the software and settings to make your windows os very "mac-like".
I had the same problem. Mac has thought of that for us! Insert the Mac disc, let it fully run it's installation WHILE YOU"RE IN Windows os. It'll set up all the settings for wifi and everythng that one would normally have to set up in windows.
If you have a printer that you want to use on the windows os that is already working in the mac os, you can download a copy of bonjour from apple. This program will get your printers up and running as well in os.

You have probably formatted the hard drive when trying to install XP, XP is not compatible with Mac hardware. You will need to purchase a copy of the Mac OS or try and locate the restore disks that should have come with your computer.

Install bootcamp. It is the certified parallel for the dual core. If you already have it installed, try installing XP again, or Vista.
