Canopy sometimes may not run in Windows in Parallels on Mac

(updated July 7, 2014)

Some users report that Canopy Python does not run in Windows in Parallels on Mac. Versions not specified.

However this is inconsistent - see comments below.

Canopy Python does run well in Windows (and Linux) in VMWare Fusion on Mac, at least through OS X 10.9.

    Is this fixed (or fixable)?

    Actually, I'm running Canopy 1.3.0 on Windows 7 under Parallels 8.0.18608 on OSX 10.8.5 and all appears to be just fine.
