#217260 Hello. I know VRC wasn't created for a mac but I recently purchased Parallels and installed everything. The only problem I have is that the text bar in VRC and the left side of VRC is flashing and does not stay and the drop down menus in the menu bar do not work until you put your mouse over the items in the drop down menu? Anyone have this problem?

Thanks.

Attached is an image that I took and it doesn't have the text bar at all

#220435 Doesn't help you, but it does work on VMWare. Initially there was a bug that locked up all of VMWare, but I reported it and they fixed it in the latest version.

And obviously, VRC would run stellar in Bootcamp.

It sure does

I HATE VMWare...always found Parallels much better. However, if VMWare means controlling on my Mac, I might have to try it.

#243173 Note that if you use VMWare, you'll want to disable the UDP timeout to avoid voice dropouts after 60 seconds of inactivity until you transmit again:

In both:

/Library/Application Support/VMWare Fusion/vmnet-nat.conf

and

/Library/Application Support/VMWare Fusion/vmnet8/nat.conf

set:

[udp]
timeout = 60

to:

[udp]
timeout = 0

#363805 Hey Guys, I got a question. I use VRC almost flawlessly on VMWare. I do have one small problem. When I press the transmit key, the little channel icon will go orange for a bit. Maybe 3-4 seconds. Then flicker green, and go back to orange for 3-4 seconds. This process repeats itself. When this happens all aircraft on my frequency hear me cut in and out and it gets pretty bad to the point where I have to use text. I was wondering if anyone had experienced this problem, and if they did, did they find a solution, so that when I transmit, it stays a solid orange.
Thanks for any help,
Ben

Did you install the Parallels Tools after installing Windows? It's the same for VMware or for Parallels — you need different drivers to make your mouse and video work smoothly with the virtual machine, so that they aren't fighting with the host OS. Go to the Virtual Machine menu, and check for an Install Parallels Tools item, or a Reinstall Parallels Tools.

FWIW, VRC under Parallels 5 works like a charm for me. Just had to fix the modifier key behaviour, as mentioned here: http://forums.vatsim.net/viewtopic.php?p=353832#p353832
