Help, Guides, and News on making the Switch To Apple Macintosh Computers
VMware version 1.1.3 is now available as a free update to existing Fusion users. VMware Fusion allows owners of Intel-based Mac users to simultaneously run both Mac OS X and other operating systems such as Windows This maintenance update contains several fixes:
- Corrects a problem in which VMware Fusion encountered reactivation problems in the native Boot Camp partition and the Boot Camp virtual machine when installing Windows Vista SP1.
- Fixes a problem in VMware Fusion 1.1.2 that caused HGFS mounting failures in Linux guest operating systems.
- Fixes a problem where VMware Fusion did not distinguish between Traditional and Simplified Chinese so that if your system language preference was set to either Chinese version, Fusion would present the Simplified Chinese interface. In verison 1.1.3, Fusion differentiates between the two Chinese systems and enables the user to specify another language as a preference if Traditional Chinese is not available.
- Updates the Simplified Chinese on-line help.
- Corrects a problem in which a virtual machine originally created with a product other than Fusion got the error "Cannot connect virtual device sound" when it tried to play a sound.
- VMware Fusion 1.1.1 incorporated a workaround for Apple bug 5679432 (Mac OS X hang under heavy disk load when unbuffered I/O is in use). That version of Fusion disabled unbuffered disk I/O on Mac OS X 10.5 hosts, even if the user selected Optimize for Mac OS application performance in VMware Fusion preferences. Apple fixed this bug in Mac OS X 10.5.3, so VMware Fusion 1.1.3 removes the workaround when the guest operating system is Mac OS X 10.5.3 or higher.
