    I had to install a fresh OSX and now I don't know how to get my Parallels installed again. I had Parallels 4 and then upgraded to 6. I cannot find any download links to the version 6 and I don't want to buy the newest version. Any ideas?

    Hello MaciejT,

    Please see this Knowledge Base article for all download links to past versions of Parallels Desktop for Mac http://kb.parallels.com/5802

    Thank you!

    Funny how the download links (past and current versions) are posted right in my signature and still people seem to ignore them. :)

    Funny how ppl are not aware of the content linked within their own signature ;)

    7.0.14924?

    The first link has the download to 7.0.15094.749908 which is the latest version and I just tested (you get the link via email), the second for older versions.

    So yes, I'm aware the content is linked correctly.

    that's correct, but this thread is about earlier versions and your second link refers to versions <= 6.

    I'd like to know where to find previous versions of v7.

    Maybe you should start another thread for that specific version of 7, the original poster wanted PDM 6.

    I don't have access to previous versions of 7 in Parallels servers, I probably have it in Time Machine, but a link should be provided by Parallels staff.

    thread title is pretty generic, so it's a good thing to have it here rather than scattered. if a dl location exists even.
    meanwhile I dug out the version I needed as well, but it would still be helpful to know.

    The title is generic but the conversation isn't, and you are asking for something very specific that is not publicly available.

    Look, I'm just helping here, I couldn't even understand you wanted a previous version of 7, because it was off context with the thread, I'm tired of hearing people complaining they don't get their hymns answered when the very often miss-communicate.

    no need for nit-picking, I asked for v7 in the context of a thread requesting earlier versions.

    you got it slightly wrong, np and I still do appreciate your efforts!

    Instead of: "and version 7?"
    I suggest the best approach would have been (for future reference): "What about previous versions of (PDM) 7?"

    Instead of: "7.0.14924?"
    I suggest: "The download link only gives me access to the latest version, I'm looking for version 7.0.14924 specifically"

    Instead of: "you got it slightly wrong, np and I still do appreciate your efforts!"
    I suggest: "Thank you for your time and patience"

    redundant. there's only one meaningful interpretation of my question, except assuming I'd be a moron asking for a current version within this thread, which you apparently did reading your first reply.

    this is not very helpful plus entirely off-topic.
    discussion ends here. if you need to continue, let's move to pm.
