    Hello all,

    I have Parallels 3 installed, mostly to run MS Money. Last night I installed Snow Leopard, unaware that Parallels 3 is not compatible. It appears that I need to go out and buy Parallels 4 as that will work with Snow Leopard.

    My question is will all my data within Windows remain if I install 4 or will it be a completely new Windows? And if so, how do I go in and retrieve my MS Money data as I can no longer access it with Parallels 3.

    Thanks!

    I have the same problem and would like to know the best way to get this program and the XP Windows crap off my iMac. I don't like windows and not too fond of Parallels either.

    You running Parallels off of a BootCamp partition or as a standalone VM?
