Default Parallels refuses to install. - 02-21-2009, 09:37 PM

It complains about this type of machine not supporting Virtualization. Any workarounds?

Is there an InstallCheck file in the Resources folder of the installer package? If so, you could try deleting it.

VMWare Fusion works fine, so that would be another option.

You can also try VirtualBox, especially since it is free. Otherwise try what guyincognito suggested.

Yeah, you have to use Parallels 3, P4 requires virtualization, which we don't have. Even if you "fix" the install script to ignore that, the program itself just won't work.
