    Hi Folks

    I am running a 1.66 Intel Core Duo Mac Mini with 1GB Ram
    I installed Parallels with Windows XP and all works great

    I Installed 2 games, Star Trek Dominion Wars & Law & Order Criminal Intent
    However they do not work, Star Trek comes up with a driver issue for the display and when trying to launch Law & Order, for a quick second a dos window opens and then shuts, and then nothing.

    Is anyone else having these problems?, can you play Windows Games with Parallels, any workaround this?...maybe Bootcamp or something else?

    Any help would be appreciated.

    I don't know about the games you list but IIRC Paralles can not yet handle 3d accelerated games. Your best off trying bootcamp
