  5. Yue says:

    does anyone know how to disable the auto update prompt everytime you boot up VM to update Parallels Tools?

    It’s really annoying, but i can’t figure out how to stop it from popping up every boot.

    • Faslane says:

      I turned it off immediately in the preferences with internet off on the first launch. Try that. Disable wifi or unplug ethernet and launch it then go into preferences and untick the “automatically check for updates” Mine didn’t bark at me because I was disconnected so it couldn’t check for an update. once off you’re good to go.

    Anyone getting that error on M1 when creating a new VM ?

    “Windows 11” cannot be started because it contains
    an Intel-based operating system. Such systems are
    not compatible with Mac computers equipped with
    the Apple M series chip.
    Please check the list of supported

    Works great,
    1. open the Dmg,
    2. install the Parallels without internet connection “because the crack is only for the 18.0.1″.
    3. run the crack folder ‘Right click folder, share to terminal”
    4. do a “ls” list files
    5. run chmod +x ./
    6. sudo ./
    7. enter in MacBook password
    installation is DONE ENJOY:)

  31. n4tural says:

    Would someone be kind as to explain the crack installation process :). Any help would be much appreciated.

    Thank you.

    • n4tural says:


      1. Once your dmg file is downloaded, open the file, you will see the dmg installer and the crack folder. Run the dmg installer like normal till parallels is installed, do not download windows yet (just install parallels only).
      2. Once parallels is installed (quit the app [cmd+q]. Check in activity monitor it is not running by typing in parallels in the search bar and quit any open processes.
      3. Go back to the dmg installer where you can see the crack folder, right click on the crack folder and select “run terminal on this folder”. Terminal should open up.
      4. Once terminal is opened type the following command and click enter after: chmod +x ./ && sudo ./
      5. You have to type in your mac password, it will be hidden for security purposes, after typing your password, click “enter” and it will run the script to install the crack and you are done :).
