Windows 7: Post your questions to the MSFT Virtualization team

Thanks Kari, that worked!

This confused me a little.... "Open C:\Your_Username", Should be C:\Users\yourname\Virtual Machines

At any rate do you know if this a bug or something?

Also, what the best way to turn off Virtual Machine? I go to Action, Close, and it closes in Hibernated mode.

Fixed the typo, Sygnus. Thanks for telling.

I close all virtual machines from the Close Window button, the red X located in the top right corner.

How it then closes depends on your settings. You can choose a default closing option, or to be prompted about how to close.

I do not know why this issue happens sometimes. I do believe it has to do something with the vmcx-file, virtual machine description and registration settings.

Could be a good idea to copy vcmx file to another location and if this happens again, to compare if something has changed.

Thanks Kari, I actually had/have my VHD drive and files on a different HD. At any rate I'll copy the file and keep it in a safe place should I need it.

As for closing, I think I'll leave it as is, it doesn't seem to be hurting anything or taking up resources.

Thanks for the help.

How is Parallels virtualization different from normal virtualization?
I started thinking about our computers.. why we cannot run two operating systems on the same computer at the same time - without virtualization. We have plenty of Ram these days and often 2 or 4 Central Processing Units. Surely someone could come up with a way to make this work. So I started...

CAUTION!<---Make sure MSFT doesn't GIVE you TWO KEYS!=MSFT=wasteful
I just realized that once you get a key and click on DOWNLOAD, MSFT gives you yet ANOTHER KEY and of course it will work (all the keys work, 32 works for 64, 64 works for 32, et-cetera), this means MSFT is being wasteful and we will ALL be getting 2 keys. Make sure when you click on DOWNLOAD,...
