    FYI - these utilities run fine using Windows XP installed under Parallels Desktop on my Mac also. I use Wii Scrubber and Wii Backup Manager, and NUS Downloader - actually haven't found any Windows program yet that hasn't run fine this way

    I find it to be better, as I don't need to reboot or close any programs on my Mac to open this up, I just boot Windows from within and run it, then shut it down and close the window after

    However, Parallels does cost money, whereas Bootcamp is free

    I have not tried VMWare Fusion, since Parallels has worked fine for me. There is a 30-day trial on their web site though.

    As we try to keep things free on wii hacks that is why this tutorial is here

    Especially when I just googled Parallels and it cost 50/$73 then the cost of Windows at 70/$102 on top I think that could be quite a expensive way of doing it.

    Restarting the mac and selecting a operating system doesnt really take much time at all either so im happy with BootCamp.
