  • Best yet

    By johnb92372
    I have been using parallels for years in different versions and mostl;y for the hardest programs to emulate, games. Well it seems they have mnastered it now because i have been paying some games that are graphics and processor intensive. I have bought many licenses that were wastes of money because i couldn't get it to run the programs i wanted but now not only does it run them but runds them very well. Way to go!
  • You dont even explain how to make things work

    By Yeiyeiyuya
    It doesnt even work properly. I have installed Revit 2024, open a Revit 2024 file from my MacOS (This file was moved from a HP computer I had, but I transfered my files to MacOS) I edit this Revit File, try to save my progress and whenever I try to it doesnt save anything, it only crashes. I have a Windows product key I bought, my folders are properly shared and edit and write available. It still doesnt save. Why do they make you pay 100 dollars annually if your product doesnt even work.

  • First day and loving it

    By Amateis
    Wow. I'm blown away at this product. First day on the free trial and cannot believe how easy this is! It's the solution so many of us have wanted for so long to integrate WIndows and Mac together. Hoping there are no surprises or catches. So far so good
  • Nice and Fast

    This is reallly nice and fast. Love being able to get Windows setup easily. Now I have my Visual Studio again but using Mac hardware.
  • Generally Successful

    By Construction Mama
    The programme works well however for some reason it doesn't capture the cents in my invoicing application forcing me to send invoices from a separate device. Neither the application nor Parallels has been able to solve the issue.
