    Just installed Win 7 on MBP13 in bootcamp. I am going to install Parallels next and point the VM to bootcamp OS so I can choose. I'll likely run Parallels mostly, but may need to boot from bootcamp once in a while for native speed.

    Question: if I install the aps in the bootcamp OS, can the VM in Parallels access them? Or do I have to install them again in the VM?

    Just install in BootCamp
    Parallels will read that partition just fine

    No need to install again
