I purchased Parallels so I could run Quickbooks 2007 on my mini. I installed it, and XP, and Quickbooks, all under my account, and it all works fine -

But I need my wife to access the accounting as well. If she logs into the mini, Parallels wont recognize its .PVM as a valid virtual machine. I've moved the files to the shared folder, changed permissions to Read and Write for everyone, copied the .plist files into her library, nothing works. I can still access the Parallels machine fine from my mac account, but when I log out and into hers, no joy.

I've sent a support request to Parallels, but I'm hoping someone here might have a good idea -

Thanks -

Have you tried installing Parallels under each remaining account on the Mac? I'd try with your wife's first and continue if that's what needs to be done.
