I have I-Mac 2.66, 8 G RAM Core i5, w/ Snow Leopard, Fusion 3, and Win 7.

4 G RAM set for Win 7. Unity ON.

All Windows programs run poorly. Specifically this shows as I move the mouse and have to wait for the cursor to catch up. When I type in text, I have to wait for it to appear. The Mouse stalls when moved from MAC to WIN.

WIN 7 is pretty much useless like this. Software on WIN7 = Quick Books, Autosketch, and Internet Explorer. Mouse even hangs in Windows Explorer.

To the point of trying Parallels.

Parallels is faster, but Fusion should not be this slow.

Try lowering the amount of RAM set for Windows 7. (A VM is not a real PC; more RAM assigned to a VM is not better, and can be worse.)

Also, if you have one virtual CPU assigned to Windows 7, try setting it to 2 CPUs for the VM.

I have to ask: have you installed VMware Tools? If not, give it a shot.

Thumbs up for that one.

Seems that it's something in the emulation.

If I put Fusion in SUSPEND, and then Restart it and then Win 7, everything works fine.

Once it sits for X hours, it hangs up very bad, to the point that it's useless. Quite Win 7 and Suspend Fusion. reboot them, and all is fine.

Any ideas?
