    hi

    i am using parallels desktop 9 on my MAC to run windows,but his support system sucks a lot and i keep loosing internet connection on my virtual machine (windows 7 ) all the time,tried all the fucking settings ,still loosing connection very often and can't run any tools on it.

    any other solution available that don't charge 18 euros for Parallels Desktop Support Phone Package English ?

    i also used VMware fusion but i don't like it,it have limited settings and don't fit with my needs.

    I agree with fatboy I have used virtualbox in the past to run Linux distributions, and it worked great! You can check the links below first.

    Nothing beats parallels for windows on mac.

    I've started with the cracked version on the macbook.
    Few months back got an air and happily paid to get the full version.

    I can do almost anything on that like having a real pc.
    From SEO to editing.

    So, it seems something wrong with your settings.

    I've been using VirtualBox for years, you should take a look at it and see if it fits your needs.

    VirtualBox is okay, but VMWare Workstation is my favorite.

    I'm very surprised to hear about your Parallels problem. I hear nothing but positive reviews about Parallels.

    There isn't a problem with Parallels, but rather a problem with your Windows 7 installation or Parallels install/configuration.

    parallels is like the best virtualisation software i have used. i have never experienced the problems you mention and find them strange. can you fiddle with the settings a little more or setup from scratch? (only the WM) i use Wine to bottle simple software so if you need to run only few simple things on occasion, then you will find Wine to be more useful. Let us know how it goes.
