I'm using a Mac for about 3 years now and updating OS X has never been an issue because it's free, but since I installed Parallels Desktop v9 and Windows 7 I'm reading issues about their compatibility on OS X 10.11 El Capitan where they are both not supported.So upon coming to this issue I would rather ask an expert to tell me how to do it right and which should I upgrade first without damaging any of my files?Please kindly assist me step-by-step on how to do it properly.
Now, with Parallels Desktop 12 including Parallels Toolbox, you can do all of that and more, with one click!
The new update seems pretty legit, so I am considering updating my macbook.
If you want to be really cautious, you can find the Parallels virtual machine file and manually copy it onto your external hard drive, free space permitting.
Put it at the top level of the drive, not in the Backups.backupdb folder. Because it has attracted low-quality or spam answers that had to be removed, posting an answer now requires 10 reputation on this site (the association bonus does not count).
New software is released seemingly every day, making it difficult to keep up with upgrades on all your devices.
And what if you skipped a version or two of the software you use on a regular basis?
Simply download it and proceed with the installation.
When you get to the point where you are prompted to activate the product, copy/paste the key from the e-mail you received and click “Activate.” Note: It will be much better if you shut down Windows before installing the new version.
Please read this knowledge base article here to get a full walk-through.
If you are a Parallels Desktop 12 user, the update to Parallels Desktop 12 was released yesterday.
I have Parallels installed on my computer, and I don't want it to be removed or damaged during the installation of El Capitan.
