Launching Parallels itself brings me to a "New VM Wizard" with no choice of "locate an existing VM". Cancelling the Wizard quits Parallels. ARG! I have to double-click the .pvs file to boot into my VM. I have tried solutions listed on this site like ensuring that Parallels has the correct path to my VM's folder (it does). What's more frustrating, it is almost impossible to access the VM's configuration settings. Clicking the .pvs file boots the VM. Stopping the VM using the red button (to access the configuration settings) quits Parallels! I have to quit the VM, then I have about a second to select Edit>Virtual Machine before Parallels quits. Many times I have missed that moment in time and had to try again, shutting down a VM as it is booting, which I'm sure isn't good for the OS. It would be much less frustrating if Parallels just stayed open when I stopped a VM.
