Anyone use this software and have issues with file sharing between the two operating systems? I was able to install Windows 7 Pro just fine, but I can't seem to get file sharing to work. HAELP.

Thanks Teggy. I just bought VMWare, but I might end up just eating the cost and getting Parallels...

If it's just file sharing you need, you can try MacDrive Pro's demo to see if that solves your problem.  I'm not sure if that's what you need, but it definitely works to let you access anything on your Mac formatted drives from within Windows.  Not sure if it does anything for the other way around though.

For the time being, Parallels beats VMWare.

But they fight it out every year, and the #1 award keeps switching hands.

Personally, I'm cheap and use VirtualBox. Works like a charm for me.

We use Parallels at work, but from everything I read and heard about Parallels and VMWare Fusion, I couldn't justify the extra $30. So far so good.
