The thread was moved from "User Solutions and Workarounds" by Xenos I have been braking my head over this one for several hours now, I am ready to throw in the towel. I am running Windows XP Home as my VM. I want to be able to open files from a certain folder and/or sub folders in the Finder in a certain windows app. I also want to be able to save files to this folder and/or sub folders from that application. So I have tried to create a Mapped Network Drive. When I open the Tools/Map Network Drive, I am presented with a dialog box, where I can choose a drive letter. Let's say I choose Z. I then click on "Browse" to browse for the folder I want to map as the network drive. I then see the following tree: My Network Places |---Entire Network |------Microsoft Windows Network |---------Home |---------Workgroup |------Parallels Shared Folders |---.Home on .psf |---.Mac on .psf |---abrasha's public folder on Abrasha's Mac (Abrashas-mac-2) |---ruben's public folder on Abrasha's Mac (Abrashas-mac-2) The last four look like folders with a network icon. When I browse to the desired folder under .Home on .psf, (in my case Home/Documents/Abrasha's Projects) and choose it, I end up with a folder under Network Drives called ".Home on '.psf' (Z" I cannot choose and open this folder from the application, from the Open File dialog box. When I double click on the folder icon, it does open to the contents of the Abrasha's Projects folder. When I do the same thing and choose either abrasha's public folder or ruben's public folder, I end up with a Network Drive labeled "Abrasha's public folder on 'Abrasha's Mac (Abrashas-mac-2)' (Y)" or "Ruben's public folder on Abrasha's Mac (Abrashas-mac-2)' (X" These are the only two folders that I can choose from when I click on "Network" in the File Open dialog box in my application. Also, when I open "My Network Places", I see two sections, i.e. Local Network, and Unspecified. The Local Network section has the abrasha's and ruben's public folders on Abrasha's Mac in it, and the Unspecified section has ".Home on .psf" and ".Mac on.psf" in it. When I right click on the Network Drive icons in My Computer, and choose disconnect, the drives that have "on Abrasha's Mac" in the name can be disconnected, and then disappear from the list. But when I try to disconnect the the drives that have "on '.psf'" in their name, I get an error message, i.e. "The network connection could not be found." It seems, that the Network Location I need to be able to create is called something like "Abrasha's projects on Abrasha's Mac (Abrashas-mac-2)", in order for me to be able to see that drive in the Open File dialog box of the app. BTW, just in case my firewall software might be the culprit (I use Zonealarm), the results are the same when I turn the firewall off. Does anyone have any ideas how I can achieve what I want? What am I doing wrong?
