Parallels Desktop 11.0.2

by Agen G. N. Schmitz

Parallels Desktop [1] has been updated to version 11.0.2 (build 31348) with a number of bug fixes for the virtualization software. The update resolves an issue with mouse cursor positioning in Windows 10 when using all displays in Full Screen, fixes a bug related to dragging and dropping from a virtual machine to OS X in Coherence, sorts out a problem with opening virtual machine applications from the Dock in OS X 10.11 El Capitan, ensures that Microsoft Office application windows render correctly in Coherence after restoring a window from the Dock, and rectifies a problem with installing an El Capitan virtual machine from the .app image.

Parallels Desktop has been split into three editions — the standard Parallels Desktop edition for home and student use, a Pro Edition that’s designed for developers, and a third Business Edition [2] that touts a number of IT administration features. The standard edition of Parallels Desktop is priced at $79.99 for a one-time purchase, while the Pro and Business Editions are available only via a $99.99 annual subscriptions. If you have a license for either Parallels Desktop 9 or 10, you can upgrade to version 11 of either the standard edition for $49.99 or the Pro Edition for a $49.99 yearly subscription. You can get a free 14-day trial [3] of the standard Parallels Desktop edition, but you’ll need to provide an email address. ($79.99 new for standard edition, $99.99 annual subscription for Pro/Business Edition, $49.99 upgrade, free update for version 11 licenses, 289 MB, release notes [4], 10.9.5+)
