Thread was moved from "General Discussions > User Solutions and Workarounds" to "Parallels Desktop for Mac > Installation and Configuration in Mac OS". Stacey M Attempted to take a snapshot and Parallels crashed. Now when I attempt to access that VM parallel states that it is in use by another Application. No lock file is present in the VM directory. Does anyone know how to find the running parallel instance. The hdd file is still in tack. Tried to create a new VM with that hdd file that I copied to another directory. Parallel stated the it was in use by another application. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
