Cant Run MapleStory Under Virtual Machine

Updates, Patches, Tech Forum Talk about MS Updates, patches, tech

Hi everyone =)
After the last maintenance check I tried running MapleStory and a window opened up that said that MapleStory can't run under a virtual machine. The window's title was "Themida". No idea what that is ..
I'm running MapleStory using VMWare Fusion on my Mac on my Windows XP virtual machine. Is anyone experiencing the same problem? Is anyone running MapleStory successfully under a Windows 7 virtual machine? Thanks a lot.

*sigh*. What now? I don't want to get my old PC fixed... it takes up too much space.

ive been hearing about using bootcamp to play, but does it work? or are they having the same problem?

OMG its happening to me too, i hope they fix this =(

I hope it's not permanent. What am I supposed to do? Partition my hard drive and run Windows through boot camp? I'd like the ability to run MapleStory on a certain Space, and use my Mac on another space. I don't see why they would not allow MapleStory to run under a virtual machine. It's not laggy or anything. They can't just change the system requirements like that.[/quote]
I doubt they'd do it for temporary purposes. Can't you allocate how much is partitioned in Boot Camp? VMWare is essentially the same thing except you don't have to do partitioning and you aren't at risk of viruses on the host OS. There are many reasons why they don't allow VMWare'd Maplestory. Mostly because you can run multiple Maplestories on it. Not being laggy isn't the issue. Blocking VMWare only forces the end user to obtain more computers if possible. They didn't change the system requirements. The requirements stayed the same, they never said anything about using VMWare to play.

This is what has been bugging me. First, Bootcamp's description is actually booting another operating system, not Virtualizing it. If this is true, it should work. However, in theory, it should still be virtual. This being said, if Bootcamp works, I don't get why Mac users seek to use VMWare. Also, if Bootcamp does work, then I need to find what people say does not exist: A way to simultaneously dual boot two windows operating systems at the same time on a PC.

They arent letting us use VMWare because we were able to run two maple at once

we can?[/quote]
Yes, VMWare allows multiple maples, but so does having multiple computers.

well, i never ran 2 maples at once but that doesnt mean u have to make us mac users suffer, i refuse to buy another pc but i cant just not play maple ):

Also, Spartan, are you confirming that bootcamp works right now? if so please let me know, and do they sell the installation discs somehwer? i seem to have lost mines..

It's the general sense of the matter. Just because mac users don't necessarily use it for multiple Maples does not ensure that it won't be used in that way.
No, I'm not confirming that Bootcamp works. I'm saying that based on how it is presented in it's description, it should work, as in it's worth a try. However, I don't have a mac so I wouldn't know and I can't test it out.

Also, if Bootcamp does indeed work, I don't understand why mac users had to seek VMWare in the first place.
