I just upgraded to VMware-Fusion-2.0.1-128865 from VMware-Fusion-1.1.3-94249. takes 4 times as long to boot and is messing with internet connection.
I have a Mac Pro 8 core with 10 gig of ram,
when I was on 1.1.3 with VM win xp set to 512 meg it ran smooth and no problems, I set this back to 2d graphics and upp'd memory to 1 gig and still slow and problematic.
it also keeps asking me to register and when I went through register it said the key i entered (a valid one) was already registered, so now I get registration nag each time.
Just need to know steps on how to downgrade
Yes, you can downgrade. Uninstall Tools, shut down the virtual machine, downgrade the virtual machine (if you upgraded), quit and uninstall Fusion. Install 1.x, install Tools.
Before you do that, though, we'd at least like some basic information to try to figure out why things are slower. What part of the boot is slower - reaching the login screen, logging in, something else? Where did this virtual machine come from - is it a Boot Camp virtual machine, was it imported from some other product? Did you upgrade the virtual machine?
Ok, it took at least 4 times longer (im talking like 2-3 min. to boot up verses 20-30 seconds under 1.1.3) to get to desktop from startup, I was 50/50 on if it was going to lockup Internet on startup.
the VM was created by fusion 1.1.1 and went thru 2 upgrades to 1.1.3, boot camp is not installed, it is windows xp pro sp3
I had backed up the VM's prior to upgrade, So i just shut down and uninstalled 2.0.1 and then restored backup and reinstalled 1.1.3
no more registration nagging (I'm already registered but 2.0.1 couldn't figure that out)
back to fast booting,
no more internet issues
I left parallels because of upgrades with stupid eyecandy features that are not tested fully and cause slow performance and problems, and now fusion is doing the same thing
Thanks for replying, I'll just stick with 1.1.3
