I am running Parallels and I get an “Invalid URI: the host name could not be found” messages when debugging or starting the software. What’s happening?

You will get this error if you are using a Parallels Shared Folder for either RackAFX or your Projects folder. The shared folders are .psf which is invalid to Visual Studio. To fix this:

1. Inside of XP/Win7/Vista in Parallels, Map a Network Drive ‘X’ to the ‘Home’ folder.
2. Open the RackAFX .prj file in the Networked Drive when you open your project; you will have to browse to the computer, then the mapped drive, etc…

Bottom line: .psf paths won’t work properly with Visual Studio integration.
