    I'm setting up a new OS X machine, and have installed Parallels under the default Administrator user, and have also installed Windows 10.
    However, actually need to access the Windows 10 VM from a different account (the day-to-day account under which I will be accessing the VM).
    How can I transfer the VM to the user's account?
    Can I just copy the Windows 10.pvm file to the appropriate user's Parallels folder? I haven't installed any applications in the VM yet - it's currently a plain Windows 10 install.

    I am trying do do the same as above.
    However... I completed the steps in. http://kb.parallels.com/9303.
    I then opened the other user account.
    I can see the parallels icon
    Launched Parallels and the Windows 10 Installation Assistant Launches.
    I click install Windows 10.
    The installation starts but then the installation Assistant 'hangs' on a black screen with no info/text/display on it?

    Problem solved ....
    ....I closed and logged out of the main user account and then launched the Installation Assistant on the other user.

    Now it's working.
