Happy to say that this now works very nicely. I'm using a Core 2 Duo Mac mini with 2GB RAM running OS X 10.5.1 Leopard and VMWare Fusion Version 1.1 (62573). I set up the Win XP partition using boot camp and then selected the boot camp partition instead of creating a new VM in Fusion. It installs VMWare Tools to the Windows partition and then everything is normal - hard to tell it isn't running natively AND my JTAGICE Mk II works normally! No more dual boot for me.

I'm trying something similar. Just got a new iMac and installed Fusion. I loaded WinAvr, AVR Studio, and various other apps in a WinXP virtual machine, no problem. Apps seem to build. But I cannot get it to recognize my JTAGICE MkII. I added the programmer under USB devices, updated its firmware, installed the Junga driver during installation, etc., but no luck. Can you offer any tips?

I find that the JTAGICE has to be unplugged while Windows (and, maybe WinAVR) are booting. If you plug it in after WinAVR is up and running, it will be recognized. Of course, your mileage may vary.

Jim,

Thanks, I'll try that. I had the JTAGICE connected via a powered hub. It would update the firmware but wouldn't program. Plugging it directly into the Mac made it work. I'll try your suggestion because I'd love to use the hub to get more than the four ports on the back of the Mac.

I think I have it running though a 4-way hub.
