I have a April born Aluminum mac book with a new parallels and a clean version of Windows 7.

Opened the game - TTG box comes up, launch the game and then that wonderful and oh so common "MonkeyIsland101.exe has stopped working".
my drivers have been updated, the cames been opened with various different compatibility modes, on 32 bit color depth, at various different resolutions, but no. Its not playing ball.
I've also tried running it on Crossover game trial with no avail. Roughly the same thing happens - apart from the "stopped working" it says that the program has a vital error and must close. The furthest it gets is to a little picture of a skull and crossbones in the middle of the screen then....... GONE.
I have also tried uninstalling and re downloading, but theres no change.
Any Ideas? (apart from get a PC!)
It should work in CrossOver Games (that's how I've played all TOMI games on my Mac) but not in version 8.1.3 (the 8.1.3 release has a lot of changes from the previous one in order to improve Left 4 Dead 2 compatibility at the expense of other games. Codeweavers are working on it)).
Download and install version 8.1.2 and install TOMI following the instructions on this page
The latter episodes (I think from Lair of the Leviathan on) are missing a .dll file (d3dx9_41.dll) which prevents them from running in CrossOver Games, but which you can find online or in the first two games' directories.
Let me know if it works for you!
