Problem installing BibleWorks 8 on Parallels 6 with new Mac OSX Lion
Within the last couple days I've upgraded from OSX Snow Leopard to Lion and also purchased and installed Windows 7 on Parallels 6. I can't imagine that the OSX upgrade is the culprit but who knows. Anyway, when I put the BibleWorks 8 disc in my DVD drive I hear it run in the drive, the "Run setup.exe" box comes up and once I click on the link, the disc makes no more noise. The "Install/Reconfigure" screen comes up but when I click on that, the window disappears, I hear nothing more from the disc drive, and nothing happens after that. I've tried many times to reload the disc into the system with no luck. I have no idea what's happening. Do I need a replacement disc? Do I need to install a driver that I'm missing? I'm fairly new to the Mac and Parallels world so any help would be wonderful. Thanks!
Oh, and I should also mention that I've had this installed before on a PC so this is the second time around installing this and it worked fine the first time.
Thanks for the help, still not working.
I tried all of these things, updated Parallels, tried the Daemon stuff (failed every time saying there was something that was blocked), and couldn't do any of that other stuff.
What I'm wondering is if Parallels isn't taking my DVD drive from my Mac into Windows 7 and instead is only a CD-Rom drive. It comes up as an OPTIARC DVD RW AD-5970H ATA Device in Windows 7 but then in the Properties and Details of the drive it calls it a Standard CD-Rom drive. I'm using a DVD to install the BibleWorks 8, could this be the problem? Do I need to get replacement CDs? Or, is there a driver that I can download so that I can run DVDs in Windows 7 through Parallels?
Thanks for the help!!
May Have Narrowed It Down
First of all, I tried to play a DVD in Windows media and this is what it said when I tried to play it. "Windows Media Player cannot play this DVD because there is a problem with digital copy protection between your DVD drive, decoder, and video card. Try installing an updated driver for your video card." So, obviously the drive is messed up. Any good fixes for that?
Also, Orville I ran that configuration you posted and everything was as it should be and still doesn't work. Still disappearing and not doing anything when I press Install/Reconfigure on the dialog box that comes up.
