    I have a project file located on my Mac HD (doing a cross-platform project, and there's more free space on the Mac partition right now).

    If I use Parallels Shared Folders ( \\.psf\matt\path\to\project\files) , then Visual studio will not compile any of the files. It reports some silly "Incremental compile" error. (OT: MS support says to turn that feature off.. but there's no option for that in VS Express Edition.)

    If I use Windows file sharing ( \\mattbookpro\matt\path\to\project\files ), then Visual studio works just fine.

    Therefore, my conclusion is that there are some features provided by Apple's built in Windows File Sharing that are not provided by Parallels Shared Folders. I don't know exactly what these features are, but if you download VS Express and try it out, I'm sure you'll find the same thing.
