Yeah, when I installed XP under OS X it took me 2 tries .... 5 hours...and XP still crawls! I hope this fix speeds it up a bit. I just tried to download it and still couldn't connect to the server...sonofaOriginally posted by peterjhill
Versiontracker has a list of the fixes, and the ones that I wish I had two weeks ago are the fixes for WinXp install and startup. I takes freakin 3 hours to install XP under VPC/OSX. Twice, within hours of install, it crashed then started blue screening on startup. It would try a disk check and freeze 17% though the check, even using a fixed disk image.
I'll be downloading the update as soon as I get to work!
Well that is good news. I just want to hear from someone that has it and give us a report on it. How is speed? Improved? Give it up.Originally posted by peterjhill
I just called Connectix (got a real person in less than three rings!)
They said that they have techs at the colocation site "working on the problem"
So, I am going to take a break from trying to download the update for a few hours.

I have just installed it. It seems to make it run slower on my system! It just feels slower.Originally posted by britboy
I've just downloaded and installed it. It's deffinitely faster. A couple of neat new features: There's an option for doing the ol' ctrl-alt-del, you can password protect your settings, you can control the level of CPU usage, both in foreground and background. There's a bunch of others too. Suffice it to say that this is a worthwhile update, and seems to have sped things up a little.
I haven't had much of a chance to play round with it loads, but it looks good.
Odd... whilst navigating around the finder (i know that's the term used in OS X, but i like it ) it seemed much more responsive. I've got 512MB RAM allocated to VPC, but that's the same as i had with 5.0.2. Did you check the levels of CPU usage assigned to VPC? I have mine set to maximum usage. That might be your problem... then again, it might notOriginally posted by Falleron
