Windows 7 not functioning in Mac Parallels Environment
Posted on 2013-10-26
My client is using a Mac with OS X, Parallels Desktop 8, and Windows 7.
He accepted updates for Parallels Desktop and restarted the computer. After reopening Parallels Desktop he opened Windows 7 and received a message that 32 Updates were needed. He approved installation of all of them. Then Windows installed 25 of them and reported 7 errors.
Upon restarting the computer, Windows messages indicate that "Internet Explorer cannot display the web page". "install a driver for your network adaptor", "Not connected - No connections available" and "No Audio Device is installed"
In spite of those messages, the Mac, including Safari and the sound system, work normally. It appears that Windows is not properly interfacing with the Parallels software.
I would be very appreciative of guidance to help resolve this issue.
