    Somewhere along the line I set Parralels to automaticly close when I close my Windows session. However, now I find that I can no longer change the configuration of the VM because you can only do that when Windows is not running (But Parallels is...).

    I'm stuck stuck in a loop.

    Can anyone tell me how I can fix this?

    Thanks,

    Mike

    But what if you also have it set to auto run the VM on launch?

    So when I launch Parallels it auto boots into Windows, and when I stop Windows it auto shuts down Parallels.

    How in the world can I get to the config editor?

    Autostart/Autoshutdown Switches

    You'll need to edit the "winxp.pvs" configuration file using TextEdit.app.

    Go to [username] => Library => Parallels => Winxp => Winxp.pvs

    Change the following 2 lines from:

    Start auto = 1
    AutoShutdown = 1


    to:

    Start auto = 0
    AutoShutdown = 0

    This should turn off the autostart and autoshutdown settings
