Hi

Could you please tell me,
I have a 27 iMac late 2013 also a mini mac mid 2011 with Parallels running windows 8 on the mini.

I was screen sharing i.e. using my mac 27 as the screen for the mini,all worked well until I installed Parallels 9 for windows 8 on the mini,what am I missing!!!!!!!!!
is there some thing I need to do to get screen sharing back up and running.
Thanks in advance for any info you can give me.

Kind regards
Mary

You haven't really told us your problem apart from it doesn't work now, so a little more info would go a long way. What doesn't work ?? What have you tried ? What happens when you try to get it working ?? That sort of stuff.

Hi
I can no longer get to see the mini mac on my 27 iMac screen,pressing CMD & F2 does not bring the mini mac screen up i have checked that file sharing is on.
Not sure what else if anything I need to do.

I take it from your posts that you lose screen sharing when you're using Windows 8 in a Parallels 9 virtual machine? What happens when you close the Windows 8 virtual machine and go back to OS X, does screen sharing work once more?

Hi
Yes thats correct,all was fine until I installed Parallels and windows,closing the VM does not give me the ability again.

Somehow when you installed Parallels 9 and setup the Windows 8 virtual machine it changed your display settings. I can't help you with Parallels 9 since I don't use it nor do I have Windows 8, however, when you close the virtual machine (shut it down completely, not suspend it) screen sharing should return to normal. You haven't really told us if you're completely shutting down the VM. Also, file sharing has nothing to do with sharing the screen when in OS X.

Thanks for posting back. Closing a VM can be deceiving since suspending it keeps it running in the background. That means the settings from the VM are still in effect. Closing it down is better.
