    When I setup folder sharing in Beta 6 on either my new iMac or new MacBook Pro, Windows explorer crashes every time I clck on a shared folder in the "Parallels Shared Folders" folder.

    Is anyone getting this?

    Do you know of a work around?

    This is known issue for Beta6 and it is already fixed. Please wait for the next public build with this fix.

    You can get around it by activating sharing on OS X, and going to \\<mac's_ip_address>\ in Windows Explorer - if it works it will ask you to log on as your Mac user. The IP address of the Mac will probably be a local one, mine is \\ for example. When it works you can see your Home folder. I can't remember the network settings for the VM though as I'm at work, someone else can probably help with that.
