    I've been the only person using my Mac for a long time. Now my wife has an account on my Mac and would like to use the Windows VM. I followed the instructions in KB9303 to give everyone read/write access to the PVM in /Users/Shared/Parallels. She can start Parallels and Windows now but she gets logged into my Windows account. That is, when she opens Windows:
    - Windows/Settings/Accounts says she's me.
    - She "sees" my Desktop, Documents, etc. Shared Profile folders instead of hers.
    I've never been clear how Parallels creates Windows user accounts or decides how to log users in. Is there some way to tell it to create another Windows user account for her, log her into that account and map the Shared Profile to her Mac folders?

    Hi, you can create new user account on the Windows with these steps.
    Please let us know if it's not that case.
