    Yeah, but the Mac versions are much less prone to go bonkers and b*tch like the Windows versions.

    @ greentree It's not a "brand name" program. It's a CD with coursework, lab assignments, not totally sure - from the instructor. She is a forestry major and it's for that class. They might have some simple mapping but no 3D or CAD.

    Question Favors needed. I'm totally lost with this

    Update..

    OK, She never got this going but found... Parallels seems good, needs window7, needs her forestry software. She had some old apps, some 1/2 apps from not using an uninstaller so...

    I had her create a "new user" and selected "share with other users" Parallels downloaded fine, Windows 7 installed fine. Then she put the forestry application on and when went to use certain features she got the message below. The new user was setup with an administrator account.

    I believe the application is... metavist This here looks like it and it's in a .pdf the software is just a big database. This app must be used to mesh with the college workings.

    What do we do to this the darn computer. I personally don't know if the previous installs make a difference and if she logged in as her normal self can she do more - why?. She'll might of tried. She has the codes/pw's/license for softwares so this where I need help

    Question When you ask for the detail you get this...

    So, no Winders guru, but that looks like an access/permissions issue. If so, nothing to do with it running a Virtual Machine on a Mac.

    First thing I would try....

    Check the permissions on the folder in question: C:\Program Files (x86)\Metavist2 (right click, Properties)

    What do you see?

    I consider you one. When compared to myself. I agree with the access/permissions issue theory...

    That's why I was asking about the new user... we created and it pretty much say you got an access problem... the fix is... It's here.

    So, what are the properties on that folder in the root of C? Any clues?

    Oh, and a long shot, but I have run into Winders programs that one needs run as admin. Weird, as I was logged in as admin.....Winders! More here. Forgot to ask.....XP, 7 or 8?

    XP, 7 both have great reputations

    8 has a poor reputation

    I have used 7 Pro and it works painlessly on my mac anyway. It still has that winders look and feel (ugly) According to what I have heard 8 doesn't work well at all AND it's even uglier

    XP did not work right for her but 7 did.

    Never got to check. She is in Alaska this week so I'll be back to this next week. She's watching the thread too.

    8's rep is well earned and fully deserved.. I have it on a laptop and a VM on my Mini. It actually runs BETTER as a VM.
    October 18, Microstuff is releasing 8.1 which will put the "start button" back on the taskbar. I was conned into putting the beta on my laptop. Had to reformat when EVERYTHING stopped working, saying it was "not compatible with this version of Windows."
    Microstuff "bats .500" when it comes to OS's
    Xp was decent, good after three service packs.
    Vista was poo.
    7 was (and still is) good.
    8... more prime Redmond manure.
