Has anyone out there used Parallels Desktop 8 on their Macs to run Windows and SQL Server 2012? I am just looking to use it for my personal development. All I have access to right now is a MacBook Pro (i7 processor, 16gb ram, 750gb hdd). Unfortunately, the workstation my job provided me with runs Windows XP, and we have to use software that is approved by my job. As you can imagine it makes it impossible to install a virtual machine on my workstation.

On a side note if you think another program like VMWare Fusion 5 would work better, I am open to all suggestions.

Thanks!

i have a macbook pro and running parallels 7.
installed windows 7 and tried to install SQL server 2012. It would not install. Am still trying... i think because it is a mapped drive so it wont install.

I haven't used it for SQL Server 2012 in particular, but this should work fine as a test environment (although technically, probably not a MS supported configuration).

Not sure mapped drives would work on any SQL instance in recent versions of Windows (they're user and session specific, so the service account is unlikely to see them), so I assume the problem above's not to do with Parallels.
