<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>
<!DOCTYPE plist PUBLIC "-//Apple Computer//DTD PLIST 1.0//EN" "http://www.apple.com/DTDs/PropertyList-1.0.dtd">
<plist version="1.0">

Hi Stansky,


What CPU do you have? Parallels 4.0 requires the CPU to support "Hardware Virtualization". If it doesn't support it, it won't install. You may either have to stick with Parallels 3.0 or use VMWare Fusion which should both work. You should also be able to go into your Bios and see if there is a setting for "Virtualization" as well.
