I am not aware how parallels work but when LR is installed it creates a Lightroom sub-folder in the users a/c MyPictures folder, by default and the Catalog File is created in the Lightroom Folder. Its possible Win XP and Win & are using different Folders.

They will by default: XP uses C:\Documents and Settings\[username]\pictures, Vista (and I believe also Win7) uses something like C:\users\[username]\pictures. So in the two cases, an installation of LR wiould locate its default Catalog in a different file system branch.
