Using Lion, I installed Fusion 4 and then Windows 7. Works great - but only for me. When I switch users (to my wife), Fusion is there but the Windows O/S is missing. What's up?

the fusion virtual machine is likely being saved to your own personal home directory.

move it to a location that your wife has access to...

but make sure you shutdown/suspend your copy before your wife opens it...

or if you have lots of space... give her a copy of the install.

hmmm - or another approach would be to move that copy of Windows to a shared account that you both use called something like "Shared Windows"... that way you both only access the same Windows from that one account....

I just expect this stuff to work, so please help me out. How do I find the VM and where should I move it? Currently, Fusion is running but the VM is shut down.

Update: Is this it? username/documents/virtual machines. It says Windows 7 x64.

Problem solved using the information here.

I saw this info earlier but I had no idea how to find the VM file. Mainstay, thanks for making me think about it a different way!
