    I have solved the issue of activating Windows 7 in Boot Camp and Parallels. Now every time I am in Boot Camp having come from Parallels, or vice versa, I have to reactivate Office Ultimate and Visio. I have the full versions of each. Is there a work around or is this the way it is? Will the activations be rejected at some point in time? This may force me to use Boot Camp over Parallels if activation will become an issue for me.

    I searched and did not find a specific answer outside of the Windows activation itself.

    Are you using the same activation code for each install. If so, I imagine that this could become an issue if it's a single install code.

    I do not use Parallels, but in Fusion you need to install VMware Tools and then activate in Fusion to resolve the issue

    There should be an equivalent for Parallels I believe
