SCT and Mac - VMWare fusion issues

Hello,

I'm hoping someone in here has dealt with a SCT tuner / Macintosh interface. Here's my issue; I have windows xp and windows 7 loaded on my Macbook Pro as virtual machines. Neither of these will recognize my SCT tuner. I get the standard error that is received if you are missing the drivers, but, I don't appear to be missing the drivers (no yellow question marks in device manager). Have any of you tried to load a custom tune to your SCT tuner via a Mac??

Sorry if this has been covered, I searched both here and via Google with little result. I have an email in to SCT and have received a response (just more questions) and have little hope in resolving this with SCT over the holiday.

2003 F250, 6.0L Lifted 6" with Airaid Intake.

Thanks
J5

Thanks guys. I hate to re-partition my ever shrinking harddrive to setup bootcamp.... Looks like I'll be picking up my work laptop.

Appreciate the input!
