Hi I'm running Windows 8 (release version) in Parallels 8 (was Parallels 7 until about 10 minutes ago!). I have a small problem with VS2012 which still happens in the release version. I keep my VS projects in my Mac documents folder so they get picked up by Time Machine. I map a Parallels shared folder from my Windows 8 guest and everything runs fine until I close a project or close VS. Every now and again, VS will hang on closing the project or itself. You can't kill the task, and it just sits there with the cursor spinning. Logging out and logging back in manages to kill the process. This didn't happen with earlier versions of VS (I've worked this way for a long time), so I assumed it was a VS2012 issue. It seems that Parallels does have something to do with this though, as I ran my VM in VMWare Fusion 5 yesterday for the full day and didn't get the issue once. I assume it must be something to do with the way Parallels maps the connection to the shared folder that VS2012 isn't liking. Does anyone have any ideas? Thanks, Mike.
