    I'm a total Windows newbie and I'm having trouble moving programs that I've installed onto Parallels 4.0 into my boot camp partition. Is this even possible? If so what is the best way to go about quickly accessing programs from the Parallels virtual machine? Could I burn them to a disk?

    The main problem is that the program I'm trying to move has a limited number of "activations" and I'm already past the limit. I should've installed the program on the boot camp partition to begin with but thought I'd try it with Parallels first. That was a mistake.

    Any help would be much appreciated. Thanks!

    Are u using Parallels with your BC partition or did you install another copy of Windows?

    I have a fresh boot camp install and a separate Parallels 4.0 virtual machine. It is not using the boot camp partition.

    Dunno man but I think you may have to just re-install it. The way you have Windows setup right now is as you had 2 computers.
