    Basically, if I exit coherence mode, I get big gray window, nothing on there. When I try to open Start menu from Mac dock, nothing happens. I can launch Windows apps, but they are visible only if I enter coherence mode. Start menu does not show up either way, in or out of coherence.

    Any ideas how to fix this?

    There are no errors, simply, when I start Parallels instance of Windows 11, I get gray screen (when not in Coherence -- attached), and, when in Coherence, there is nothing at all displayed at all on the dekstop.

    My problem was solved by (very drastic) workaround:
    Delete existing Windows VM and recreate it from the scratch.
