    Hey everyone,

    I have a weird problem with my parallels.

    Sometimes he works and sometimes he doesn't.
    The thing is- it works whenever he wants.
    I can try to open it for like 10 times and it work, and on the 11th time it will work.
    I have no idea what is the problem.
    I got on the parallels Windows XP.

    Is there anyway to fix it without erasing it and installing again?

    Thank you!

    Does it say something when you cannot start it?
    What is going on when you try to start your Parallels? Just nothing?
    I think you should specify your problem a little bit...
    I also recommend you to try to find a solution of your problem on Parallels official forum..

    You could probably just reinstall Parallels - take a copy of your virtual machine first. Then once you have reinstalled just copy your VM back and use it again. that way you don't have to reinstall Windows.

    Why not give fusion ago on a trial basis,i myself have tried both fusion & parallel's and have always
    found fusion to be the more stable & reliable of the two. There are countless threads on this issue
    to help you decide,just try a search
