I'm an engineering student.
I've got a 2011 17"mbp.
Windows 7 (32bit)
and I'm running Lion.
I've been running windows seven in parralels for about the last 7-8 months using Pro Engineer Creo package. (3d CAD)
I've allocated the maximum ram towindows that I can. Are you able to allocate more cores?
I find that when swapping between Lion and Windows while using Creo the picture will start to flicker in windows. Sections of the window will swap between black and the image it should show. Sometimes it's a pattern of pixelation. I'll try to get a screen capture of it. The only solution i've found for this is to swap to lion and force quit the program, sometimes the whole VM.
Sometimes the whole computer freezes adn teh only solution is a forced reboot. (holding the power button for 5 seconds)
These are all incredibly annoying. I've literally spent hundreds of hours using this program this year and it's become quite a chore.
Does anyone have any suggestions for a solution? Can this be fixed in the parallels settings?
Please let me know if you think I left details out.
Any solution is creatly appreciated. The semester is nearly over but I'd love to have this running smoothly for the summer.
