    Hello.
    Strange problem with my parallels desktop 9. For an accounting software, i need to access a database via a network drive. I mapped the drive with the letter x (for exemple). Everything works fine, i can use my accounting software.
    If i stop to use my mac for more tan 10 or 15 minutes, when i come back, i have an error on the accounting soft and it crash. People who develop the software explain me that it is a network disconnection. Drive X:\ is still accessible. I think it's a sleeping mode problem. So i set the virtual XP machine to never go to sleep (it was already set to this) and never hibernate. I also do the same for the mac. So, now, i have NO sleep on the mac and the virtual XP but i have still the same problems.

    I'm quite sure it's related to a very small disconnection of the mapped network drive when i dont use the computer.

    Can somebody help me?

    Thanks in advance

    SAME PROBLEM and it is getting worse.

    I am thinking about reverting to the "last" version of Mac OS (Before Mavericks) and going back to Parallels 7. HAs anyone done this??

    Voilaxaxa,
    I was fine with Parallels 7. Worked fine for years until I upgraded to Mavericks and PD9.
