Default Possible Parallels Virtual Machine Issue

Because my Guild does not support Speex on their Ventrillo server, I've had to find a creative solution to use the Windows version of Ventrillo running on a Parallels virtual Windows XP machine.

I spent the better part of the day yesterday installing Ventrillo and configuring my Mac and virtual Windows machine so that mike input and audio output worked the way I wanted.

I had to reboot the virtual Windows XP machine after configuration changes to ensure that the Windows to Parallels to Mac drives were all playing nicely.

What I discovered was that I could get ventrillo to talk and receive using the voice activation feature, however, I was not successful in getting Ventrillo's Push to Talk feature to work unless the Parallels/XP virtual machine was operating in the foreground. As a background process the PTT key binding fails to operate and the Mac likes to let you know that you are pressing the key down with a constant repetitive drumming sound too annoying for practicle use.

If anyone has discovered a better work-around, I would appreciate knowing.
