    iWork 09 and iLife 09

    Nothing new on this subject? Is there still no way to use iWork (and Pages in particular) in a virtual machine? :-(
  2. Hello all, About two years ago I installed Tiger in VMWare on my Dell Optiplex GX620, but I couldn't manage to launch XCode and I scrapped the whole thing. Now I would like to know if anyone has been successful installing Xcode + Snow Leopard in some virtualization software (in Windows XP, but I'm ready to try in Vista or 7 too...). Thanks in advance for any answer!
  3. Thanks, I'll give Parallels a try. By the way, I thought that the performances of Parallels in OS X and VMWare in Windows were quite similar. What is the reason for the difference ?
  4. Hello everyone, First, sorry for my poor English. I have installed OSX86 (JaS 10.4.8 SSE2/SSE3/PPF...) on a partition of my internal hard disk, on a Dell Optiplex GX620. Everything works fine (except sound and sometimes Ethernet not recognized). I can boot on Windows XP or OSX86 without problem. Then I installed VMWare on my XP partition, and managed to boot my OSX86 physical partition through VMWare. Found it pretty cool (even if Ethernet in OSX86 was now completely disabled). Then I booted in OSX86 (no VMWare this time), downloaded XCode and installed it : seems to work like a charm. Then I booted back in Windows XP and tried to launch OSX86 through VMWare again : IMPOSSIBLE ! I have the grey Apple startup screen but it goes black and keeps displaying an error message about a missing library, and never finishes booting. I still can boot OSX86 normally, without VMWare. 1. Does anybody have an explication for this strange behavior ? 2. Did anybody manage to launch XCode + OSX86 through VMWare ? (I need XCode but I would like to use Windows in the same time...) Thanks for any help or advice !
