NinjaTrader 8 on Parallels Desktop

My NT8 locks up on Parallels Desktop. I expanded memory and CPU settings. Seemed to make Parallels respond better, but made no difference with performance of NT8. Any ideas what might be the problem? Is NT8 too much for the virtual desktop on an iMac?

NT support is reviewing my log and trace files now. Hope they can figure it out!

I had similar issues on VMWare, so I have moved to Bootcamp.

If possible, move to Bootcamp.

Got good help from NT support. Had to disconnect share files with Mac, uninstall the NT8 and reinstall. Now seems to be ok. Thanks for the responses here! //Tony
