Can I run Maestro on a virtual machine?

Yes, but you must start it with the -SGL option. If you do not use this option, graphical objects might not be displayed correctly, or Maestro might crash. This is because virtual machines are generally not capable of using the hardware graphics capabilities.

An exception is running a Windows VM using Parallels on a Mac. Parallels recognizes the graphics card and can make use of the hardware Open GL capabilities.

Keywords: VM, Mac OS X, Windows
