RE: JAWS 10 and Parallels 3 for Macintosh

So it's definitely something with the video intercept software. Possibly a
compatibility issue? I'm just guessing at this point, since I don't own a
mac nevermind trying to put JAWS on it. But judging by what you're saying,
it looks like it's having trouble hooking into the video subsystem your VM
uses. It's a common problem when trying to run video intensive applications
for Windows inside of a Windows VM. Unfortunately, I have absolutely no idea
how you'd go about working around it. You might try mailing lists for either
that particular VM software or mac OS?

Thank you for the quick response. I downloaded JAWS/MAGic Video Intercept
from the JAWS download page and installed it, but unfortunately it crashed
my VM in what appears to be the same way after it restarted the system.
