    Found this thread after researching why I can't log in.
    At least now I know I can stop looking for a solution. And that I don't need to renew my subscription for now because w/o this function this software is of no use for me rn.
    Hope this gets sorted eventually and info about it gets posted here.

    Lot of ire aimed at Parallels here for something that Apple did. May still be true that without Apple ID signin capability, the usefulness of Parallels is diminished. But Apple specifically blocked Apple ID signin in virtualized environments, it was a conscious and intentional decision on their part, and it affects anything using the virtualization framework on Apple Silicon. It's Apple that needs to be convinced, Parallels is waiting for this just like the rest of us are. So stomping around blustering at Parallels may make you feel better, but it's entirely pointless. Stomping around and blustering at Apple would at least be blustering in the right direction.

    Sorry, Apple didn't use a misleading and deceptive product description for Parallels on Apple Silicon, Parallels did. (And it's not just the inability to use an Apple ID... the product is missing most of the features the Intel version has.)

    @PaulH44 I fully agree. It's not up to Parallels to be "waiting for this just like the rest of us are". Either they get busy working with Apple on a solution OR they change the way they advertise and sell their product. After all, it is currently being sold with some misleading advertising and only by diving into their knowledge base articles one can find out that a number of those advertised promises are not working ...

    Would be great to get someone from Parallels to post an update here or let us know where things stand. This along with the ability to create Linked Clone on a Guest MacOS VM is still not possible on M1. I am holding on to my Intel MacBook and a second Parallels subscription just for this use case. Very disappointed in Parallels.

    Just one more +1 on this topic
    My setup: MacBook Pro 16" 2023, M2-Max, MacOS Ventura 13.2.1.
    My problem: I get "Action could not be completed" when I try to install/setup a MacOS VM with my existing Apple ID.

    This has been a known problem with the Apple Hypervisor on Apple Silicon. Parallels Desktop and VMware Fusion do not have a workaround. Apple needs to fix it.

    Another +1. Can't drag n drop between my Mac and my VM Mac, can't sign in with my VM Mac. This just sucks.

    Has there been any update on this issue? Running M1 Mac Studio with Ventura and trying to install Monterey VM but non of the features are working. Is there any workaround?

    Parallels, please provide an update. Is Apple willing to address these issues? Even if you say "yes but we have to wait for macOS 14", or something, ANYTHING, please throw us a bone

    Thank you for your feedback.

    Unfortunately, Apple does not provide a roadmap for expanding their framework.

    As soon as changes to the Apple framework occur, our development team makes changes to the Parallels Desktop updates.

    In Parallels Desktop 18.3, which was released yesterday, we also extended the MacVM functionality.
