Parallels Desktop 11.1.2

by Agen G. N. Schmitz

Parallels has released Parallels Desktop [1] version 11.1.1 (build 32312), sorting out an issue with Boot Camp virtual machines not booting and fixing a problem that prevented NTFS drives from mounting. The virtualization software also resolved a bug with Microsoft Outlook crashing in Windows after opening an Outlook file from OS X, another crash that occurred after quitting a virtual machine in Full Screen mode while another virtual machine is running, and a bug that caused the mouse cursor to look corrupted when Retina settings were applied to an external display.

Shortly after this update was issued, Parallels Desktop was updated to version 11.1.2 (build 32408) to resolve an issue with connecting USB devices to virtual machines after upgrading to OS X 10.11.2 El Capitan, fix a bug that prevented a virtual machine from waking from sleep, sort out a problem with virtual machines not recognizing additional displays when using all displays in Full Screen mode, and prevent a black screen from appearing after installing Parallels Tools on 10.6 Snow Leopard and 10.7 Lion virtual machines. ($79.99 new for standard edition, $99.99 annual subscription for Pro/Business Edition, $49.99 upgrade, free update for version 11 licenses, 293 MB, release notes [2], 10.9.5+)
