    Hello,

    I installed Parallels Tools into a fresh (and fully patched) Windows 7 VM. After the reboot and every single time I log into the Windows 7 VM, a message pops up that says:

    window title: Parallels Shared Profile

    You will be logged off of the system to apply the new Shared Profile settings.

    When you log in again these host computer user folders will be mapped to user folders in the virtual machine.

    [x]Desktop
    [x]Documents
    [x]Pictures
    [x]Music
    [x]Movies
    [x]Downloads

    The only choice I have to click is OK which I do. At that point, I'm logged off of the VM, so I log back in and this repeats. I've done it 10 times in a row thinking maybe it needed one log in for each folder or something (the extra 4 times just for good measure) ... I'm beginning to feel like I'm a crazy person waiting to be discovered by my peers.

    I will not disable this feature as I specifically want it enabled.

    I should mention that I am logging in with a domain user account to a Small Business 2003 server which I know has redirection policies of its own. So I suspect that the server is overwriting these policies that Parallels put in place so I need to know if there is a way to reconcile them? Either by upgrading my server to the latest SBS version with the included Active Directory update? Or am I not supposed to use this feature with an Active Directory account at all under any circumstances? Or perhaps there is a tweak I can implement in Active Directory to make the two get along with one another ???

    Thank you in advance,

    Sincerely,

    Mike Sims

    No, I have been waiting for someone to respond to this post, but it doesn't look like Parallels has any actual trouble shooting technicians monitoring the forums ... they must want us to pay for support even if we're willing to wait several days for an answer. Pure money grubbin greed!

    I just had this problem. Support guided me through the options of the Virtual Machine and turned off "shared profiles"

    after that, log on again, click ok (got logged off) but then when logon next, everything is all good.

    HTH,
    Chay

    This does indeed work like a charm. Had to do this today and after a logout or two, all was well.

    Cheers.

    Bumping this thread

    Upgraded to Parallels 8, installed Parallels tools
    Upgraded my Win 7 Ultimate image to Windows 8 (Technet full release)
    Every single time I go to the Desktop I get this box telling me to log out to sync profiles (which were fine previously)
    Reinstall Parallels tools
    Same issue.
    Remove ALL sharing - profiles, disks, apps etc
    Same issue.
    Revert back to snapshot Pre-Windows 8
    Problem goes away.

    I don't have this issue with a clean W8 build, so I assume it is something in Windows 7 that causes it.

    Same error message

    I'm getting the same error message as below.
    I tried the suggestions of turning off Sharing settings but this window keeps popping up after several restarts.
    I'm running Mac Mountain Lion with Parallels 8 and Windows 8
    Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    Any update on this rather glaring problem?

    I just upgraded to Parallels 8, upgraded my Win7 machine to Win8 and get this annoying pop up.

    So the QA team never tested Win7 / an upgrade to Win8?? Really?

    Cracker Jack action right there.

    Resolution!

    I got a resolution to the infinite login box! Parallels sent me a registry file that I dropped and ran on the Windows desktop. Then reinstalled Parallels and it is actually working now.
    Contact Parallels for this registry file.

    I've already asked support but its taking too long. Could you perhaps upload the registry file or indicate what reg file and what is different?

    The registry file I got from support

    I wanted to share what finally worked for me.
    First of all, I was told that Parallels didn't support the latest version of Windows so they closed my ticket.
    Later got an email to run a registry file on the Windows side then click the reinstall Parallels on the Virtual Machine menu and everything started working!
    I've uploaded the file to share.
    I hope it works for you.

    It Worked!

    To everyone still having this issue, definitely try what LeonaB has has posted regarding running that registry file. I did it and then reinstalled parallels tools, after that everything worked perfectly after the VM restarted. Thanks a lot for the help.

    Registry File

    Could someone please repost the registry file or the contents of it (should be able to open it with a text editor)? I updated Parallels 8 yesterday and am now getting this same issue with Windows 8. Thanks.

    In win8 situation is not the same - you shoud just install your tools back using a standard way.
    Here is the KB: http://kb.parallels.com/en/115026 for win8 cases.

    Thanks a lot!

    I had to outsmart Windows, but finally managed to get Regedit to recognize it as a registry file. Thanks for hosting the file.
