I downloaded the upgrade last night. Everything I've tried in XP works fine on my MBP, although, I haven't tried the iSight.
I have had the isight working for some time now. I recall having to install the drivers that are included in boot camp. Perhaps they're still needed even in these later versions of Parallels?
in what forum posting? I think I'm missing something...Try following these instructions.
I recall that this is how I did it. You don't have to install boot camp; the extracted drivers are available from a link in that forum posting.
how did you get the isight to work inside winxp running through parallels? did you install bootcamp and use parallels to access that os?My sound and iSight work, but it did crash my whole iMac 24. Solid. Restarted and it seems to be working, but that's the first time I have locked up so bad nothing worked.
Sorry, I thought that I had copied the link...in what forum posting? I think I'm missing something...
This is correct. Install Apple's iSight drivers from the Boot Camp CD (no need to actually install and configure Boot Camp, however), restart Parallels, and then from the Devices menu choose the iSight to activate it. Voila, iSight should now work. Works great for me, not using the Boot Camp partition. Sound ALSO works, by the way. Didn't have to do anything special for this. I did install ALL of the drivers from the Boot Camp CD, but I am pretty sure sound worked just fine before this.Sorry, I thought that I had copied the link...

Also note that after you install the drivers, each time you start Parallels you have to go to the Devices menu and select isight to activate the camera.
I tried using the iSight drivers, and it still didn't work. No idea what the problem was, but this resolved it.You shouldn't have to go through all of that just to get it working. I'm still on my original VM and was able to get the sound and isight working.
And instead of downloading the entire boot camp CD, the isight drivers are available separately. PM if you can't find them and I'll hook you up.
