    having problems with Parallels
    Hi everyone

    Im having a bit of trouble with Parallels. Ive installed it and got windows xp running, so far so good. My problem is I cant seem to access anything from my MAC to view in windows. Any help please, as its driving me mad and more than likely something very simple.

    Did you install Parallels Tools?
    Liquid and computers don't mix. It might seem simple, but we see an incredible amount of people post here about spills. Keep drinks and other liquids away from your expensive electronics!

    Also when you open Parallels Desktop click on the Configuration before you boot into Windows. Make sure in the Shared Folders you have it checked to allow sharing for all windows disks and all mac disks.
