Fusion /BootCamp Question--Two users access of same vm?

    I am a switcher from windows--I bought an iMac 20" a few weeks ago.

    I installed a boot camp partition and use Fusion mostly to run Quicken. (I will likely get rid of Boot Camp once I get more comfortable). Fusion/Quicken run perfectly from my user account.

    However, my wife also uses Quicken--however Fusion does not recognize the Boot Camp partition when I run it from her user account. She would prefer to access her Quicken accounts from her user account.

    Is there a way we can have Fusion store the information on the Boot Camp virtual machine in a shared folder so we can both access it (like we do with iTunes and iPhoto)?

    Thanks in advance for any ideas or suggestions.

    It *should* automagically find the Boot Camp partitions as long as she's got VMware Fusion installed.

    If for some reason, it's not, you could try copying your:

    [username]/Library/Application Support/VMware Fusion/Virtual Machines/Boot Camp

    directory into your wife's similarly named directory.
