Q:>  I followed the normal procedure to install Vortex in my laptop. This laptop is a MacBook with the virtual machine Parallels so it's able to use Windows software. Once everything is installed and I run Vortex, the initial window pops up but when I click on new project, it just disappears and nothing happens. In the other hand, when I do the same on Eddy everything works as expected. Any possible explanation/solution? Thanks!
