has anyone been able to make MPC work on a MacbookPro using Parallels Desktop? I can't get MPC to recognize the HASP and be online. The HASP is associated with the Virtual PC and MPC works fine, other than being offline.

Did this issue ever get resolved? Thinking of purchasing a MacbookPro.

Well, now that I've gone Mac, there's no going back. Now I just need to get my MAC's to work on my Mac. I'm running OS X (10.8.5)

I'm planning on trying BootCamp to run MaxxyzPC via Windows. Will it work? Has anyone done this? Should I save myself a lot of time and frustration?

And back to the OP. Does Parallels work?

I can use MPC just fine now. The issue was related to the old HASP dongle, but with the one key, its just fine. I use MPC with the M2PC hardware, and have no issues at all.

I've just installed M-PC on my MacBook Pro, OS X (10.9) using VMware Fusion running Windows 7 Home Premium. It seems to be working okay on preliminary test. I'm getting a showfile save error but showfile seems to be saving anyway. MPC is not recognizing my HASP but not an issue as I only have one USBDMX.

I'm also a MacBook owner and if you let me give my opinion, I think you should install Windows via BootCamp, because you will have a much more stable system that you can rely for live shows.

Don't forget that when you work in a Virtual Machine, the Operating System communicating with the Hardware will be the main one (in your case OSX).
OSX will serve as a bridge between your Windows in VM and your hardware, and as you should understand, that will give you delays between the two.

Moreover, I have a Dual-Core 2.66 Ghz that I doubt it would have a good performance under those conditions (VM)... Virtual Machines are good for testing, but I wouldn't rely on it for live performances.

Just my 2 cents. :)
