Update on ArcGIS on OS X

Filed under: Mac OS X — geoLibro @ 2:35 pm

I think I’ve mentioned before that Parallels’ “Cohesion” is nearly priceless. I’m on build 3106 and its speed is really pretty good. It’s a little peculiar that the speed of the XP OS within Parallels is often much better than working with the Parallels .app itself. Anyway, I should report that last night Parallels crashed very suddenly, with nothing to report about why. Just instantly shut down. And right now ArcMap was drawing a pretty simple polygon layer and then just stopped, froze. The Parallels .app is still responding, but ArcMap (actually, entire Windows OS) isn’t and the “Send keys” option doesn’t do anything.

In better news, I managed to get the personal version of ArcSDE (inc. SQL Server Express) onto Parallels’ XP and somehow it was easier than doing it on my desktop. Permissions problems, I guess.
