The new Keyboard driver on Bootcamp broke the connection for my keyboard under Windows 10 and it might break yours too. So after using the solution from Zidad for the last couple of months (thank you) I decided to find a better solution to be able to use the Fn button and all the volume and multimedia functions of the Apple keyboard, here is what you need ...

Like the others have said, Apple has ceased development for it. The latest Windows version is 5.1.7 and you can find it in several places including FileHippo (http://filehippo.com/download_safari/) It will give you warnings galore, that its not the latest most secure browser, but if you must run it for some reason - there it is.

I am currently using Windows 10 TP (Technical Preview Build: 10240) on my MacBook Pro Late 2011. I am using Boot Camp with the drivers made for previous Windows versions. I haven't had any issues with using it but after upgrading to an newer build I was needing to reinstall the driver package again to get it to work properly. Also, as Steve Chambers said in ...

How to install Windows without using the BootCamp Assistant. Download and copy the Boot Camp Support Software to a flash drive. You will need this later. You need to create a "MS-DOS (FAT)" formatted partition. One way would be during a clean install. Use the Disk Utility to create a two partitions. The first would be "Mac OS Extended (Journaled)" for ...

Short answer: No. This feature does not exist on Macs. On a side note, it's also useless in Windows too. A long time ago in a galaxy far, far away, CTRL+ALT+DEL sent a hardware interrupt to the PC's BIOS (which would immediately reboot the computer in the DOS days). That interrupt also had the happy side-effect of breaking things like keyloggers and ...

Running the VM from a USB drive is definitely possible, but far from optimal. I use VM for running Project and Visio on my mac (never from USB though), and it made a huge difference when I switched to SSD. Some numbers: A decent internal SSD will have a speed (sequential read/write) of around 500 MB/s while a fast external SSD will do around 300 MB/s, and ...

Simple answer: No. Apple does not allow iOS to run anywhere else but iOS devices (iPhone, iPad, iPod touch) and the Xcode simulator. You could simulate OS X on your Windows VM application and then use Xcode to simulate an iOS device, but this would be really taxing on your computer and really not worth the effort, but you cannot simulate iOS directly on ...

Virtual PC was a software emulator for creating & running Windows virtual machines on Mac systems using the PPC architecture. If you can find it, it'll do what you want albeit at a glacial level of response.

There will be zero issues running Windows on a Mac. A Mac is basically an Intel based PC. If you are using a VM, regardless of the platform (VMware, VirtualBox, etc) once you delete the virtual machine, it's gone. Unless you share folders between the VM and the host, there is nothing that goes outside the VM container. If you are using BootCamp, once ...

Late model macs such as yours have good support for EFI boot for windows and OS/X. I assume you have installed both via EFI on a disk partitioned using GPT partition scheme. I am very familiar with the windows 8.1/10 cycle of trying to fix itself, it never will fix itself, this is something you need to help it with. I spent more than a couple of days last ...

You have not actually installed Windows. Your image shows the BOOTCAMP partition is MS-DOS (FAT) formatted. If Windows installed, the partition would be NTFS formatted. At some point during the installation, did you tell Windows to format the BOOTCAMP partition? See step 4 here and "Format the Windows partition" step here. If you skip this step, you will ...

Change your network setting in parallels to be bridge mode and you should be set. http://kb.parallels.com/en/4948 The IIS and Windows will get their own IP address so you can connect as if the PC was a physical one connected directly to the network.

All the photos that are taken in a burst sequence share a "BurstUUID" in their EXIF data. This is how applications know they are related. For example I just took a burst of images, installed exiftool and ran exiftool -BurstUUID *.JPG against the directory with the burst images. This is the output. ======== IMG_0076.JPG Burst UUID : ...

It depends on how you run Windows and the amount of RAM you have in your Macbook Air (4GB or 8GB) If you're running Windows through virtualization software like Parallels Desktop or VMWare Fusion, indeed expect performance issues. The system has to run 2 OS'es and definitely on a 4GB Macbook Air this might require some serious disk swapping (granted, ...

This was (or obviously still is in VirtualBox 5?) a known bug of VirtualBox 3 which should have been fixed in 4.0.0! The workaround is disabling the use of the new async I/O code... done by ticking "Use host I/O cache" for the SATA (and SCSI) controllers.

There's a subtle difference in the 2 technologies-- and kind of a misnomer. Apple's remote screen sharing technology is based on VNC -- Virtual Network Computing. You'd think this would be a virtualized technology that would provide you with whatever screen resolution you wanted, right? And Windows RDP -- Remote Desktop Protocol -- it would only give you ...
