Yes, works like a charme. There are times I don't even notice I'm using a windows app. VMWare Fusion 6 is great. Remember doing a port forwarding on the mac for the preview working on the Phone. I've added some helpful links in one of the threads. A quick search should help.

To fix construct 2 running on Parallels crashing when you try to load a project uninstall parallels tools. This fixed an issue related to the video driver loaded by parallels 7 parallels tools for me.

This is a quick uninstall and reinstall I uninstall it when I need to develop in construct 2

Yep, Parallels 7 and latest C2 are a problematic combination. ...for now ...

No problems with VMWare Fusion 6 and r163 on my MBA. Didn't try r164 though.

@humanescape: You can always try a 30day demo. I like the new Unity-Mode especially.

@Smolli great suggestion! I have it downloading as we speak.

Windows on my mac ran faster in parallels then on my windows machine, hopefully VMWare is the same. Id hate to actually use my windows laptop *shutters*

@humanescape Same with me :) My Windows-PCs are so old, I hate doing anything with them. C2 runs blazingly fast on my MBA. Of course, 8MB Ram and a SSD always help :) Don't forget to try the unity mode!

@Smolli

I got fusion running, ran my parallels VM file no problem. Had an issue with spotlight trying to index Fusion but once I turned that off performance was good. No issues with construct :) woo. thanks.

I will have to try unity mode next

btw, does SSD make a big difference for you? I'm running the old spinning disk
