Ha ha. That is a pipeline Inspection tool (PIG for short). That particular one is for 6" pipe. It is pushed through the pipeline by the product and it measures and logs geometry and corrosion.
cmcconnell - I am curuios as to what settings you are using w/ in parallels? How many CPU's do you assign? How much memory? Do you keep Windows Aero activated?
I too have a new MacBook Pro w/ 8GB ram, and 2.2 GHz i7 Processor. I am running Windows 7 - 64bit on Parallels Desktop 7.
Any other pointers would be greatly appreciated.
Hi - I definitely have turned Aero off. I let parallels take the max ram it needs. I only have one CPU dedicated. I disable as much of Windows 7 as I can.
For the most part My laptop is pretty stable.
We also run Mac Pro boxes under bootcamp. That works pretty well except there are a lot of updates required to get Windows 7 to run out of the box.
I've just installed Inventor Pro 2013 on my MacBook Pro running OS X 10.7.4 and Parallels 7.0.15055. Most everything appears to work properly except things like the delete key don't work. I have to press Shift-Ctrl and then select Delete to get rid of drawing elements.
Have any of you had this difficulty? Is there a way to make the Delete key work in the standard way?
In advance, thanks for your advice!
Hey, I just found the answer after juggling my search terms on this list a bit!:
Additionally, on Mac keyboards which only have the Backspace key, you can make it work
like a normal Delete key by pressing the Fn (function) key along with Backspace.
