I'm using Parallels as well, but I do have Windows 7 as well as XP if you want me to look into it.

It's easy to see what the path actually is, so you can tell the low level application. I'm using this approach for somewhere to put a data stack (a stack that can be saved at runtime) on a two-platform app and it works for me.

It timestamps and writes the key or keys that were hit out to a file that I in turn look for changes to from within LC. The key trapper will have it's own installer and I need to tell it where to write to before it is built.
