    Hi all,

    I just changed over to Mac from PC recently and bought a new iMac. So far I'm loving it but I have found a bit of an issue with Age of Empires 3 installed under Parallels 6 and Windows 7. When I go to save a game it doesn't save. I try to find a saved game and there is nothing in the saved games directory.

    Is this an issue with directory structures under Parallels with Win 7 or is there something else I don't know about?

    Regards

    Jeff

    I had the same problem. But this guy figured it out: http://aarononeal.info/?p=72

    Basically you have to turn off mapping of mac home directories in parallels config as AE3 is 'hard wired'.

    Fix

    Here is the fix that works for me and allows me to keep my documents in sync between VMs and OSX.
    In Parallels unset the documents as a shared folder.

    THEN

    Create a mapped network drive to \\psf\\Home (I used N:) as that will be more persistent than using the default Z:
    Then in the start menu, right click on the My Documents link, and go to Properties.
    Change the target to N:\Documents.

    (This works for me on the latest patch of AoE 3)
