    Parallels and Win 7 Video Driver
    Win 7 reports that my iMac (Leopard) does not have a driver that supports Aero. Anyone got Aero to work in Parallels 4.0?

    Aero will not work in Parallels, Fusion or any other virtual machine because it requires hardware acceleration. Although Fusion supports DirectX, none of these programs support the hardware acceleration required for Aero. Sorry - same in Vista and for similar effects in Ubuntu Linux.

    Cheers
