In response to the bug I documented here, I recieved the following response from Parallels:

Hello Larry!
Thank you for your interest in Parallels Workstation.

Parallels doesn't support dual-headed configurations now.
The feature is in scope for future versions.

In non-full screen mode, PW is simply a windowed application. It should be able to exist anywhere on my desktop. Expecting an end user to start keeping track of what applications can exist on which parts of their desktop is a bit ridiculous in my opinion.

That seems a LOT like a bug to me (not a missing feature).

Beta4 supports dual-monitor configurations now (supposedly).

However, THE BUG STILL REMAINS!!!!!

How is full screen mode working out for you?

The bug I mentioned earlier manifests itself in full screen mode as well. So it is entirely unusable for me.

iMav, could you explain this bug more clearly? Are you saying that if you move the window PW is operating in anywhere on your Desktop, it won't stay there the next time you open it?
