Share Run/Debug configuration Follow
When share option is selected the xml config is saved into the .idea/runConfigurations folder but configuration is not showing up in the different project even after the xml files been manfully copied under the prospective idea/runConfigurationsof that project

Try to copy the files when IDEA is not running or the project is closed. Does it help?
What type of Run/Debug configuration is used? Make sure the corresponding plugin is enabled for the second IDEA installation.
I have closed and reopen the project - didn't work, then closed and reopen the Idea still same result. It is basic Application configuration so plugins are not an issue, and I'm using the same Idea instance anyway.
I think that idea should refresh it when files are added to the folder.
What IDEA version do you use? Is it the same for both installations?
Can you share .xml file that is not detected as Run configuration when you copy it?
Idea Version 140.2493.5
Can't reproduce, configuration was loaded in another project after copying the file (IDEA 14.0.3):
Keeping the project in the drive root is a bad idea, try moving it to the subdirectory and see if it helps. Also try with the local drive if the one you are using is remote.
It is an EAP 140.2493.5 project is not under the drive root, I just deleted the path :)
Tried with EAP, aslo works fine:
Make sure the file is named exactly as the "name" attribute value inside the XML.
Sorry for confusion it is working indeed, I have tree project structure and copied it into the wrong .Idea folder. Feel embarrassed :(
Thanks again for your prompt help.
