    I am using Parallels Desktop 5 and I am trying to play Star Trek (which is a Windows only game). Every time I boot up the game I get this Error that has me choose a setting to play the game: it says Failed System Specs Check please choose Run in Lower Settings and Default settings. Whichever I choose the system freezes when it gets to about half-way of loading and then I have to hard-restart my MB Pro. I went to NVIDIA to download the drives for my GeForce 9400M and 9600M GT. Once download is complete and I run the .exe I get this error "The NVIDIA Setup program could not locate any drivers that are compatible with your current hardware. Setup will now exit."

    I have contact Parallels and received no reliable answers so I am curious if someone else out there might know what to do, and please let me know if you need more information.

    Thanks,

    Would I be downloading under the Windows Host or Mac OS host?

    Your Mac will be the host system, so you have to download the mac version.
