    As the title says I am looking to copy/paste a file living on the host (MacOS) to the guest (Fedora Server 36) but without having Parallels Tools installed. The reason is I can't compile Parallels Tools with this kernel version and I am trying to manually apply a patch file (found in a thread here) which should allow me to compile them properly. Any advice?

    Thanks in advance

    Hello, please help us with your Kernel version and host OS version so we can check your query internally.

    The kernel version is 5.17.8-300.fc36.x86_64 and the host is MacOS Monterey 12.4. The VM has Fedora Server 36. Parallels Tools fails to install and not sure why

    Hello, kindly upgrade to Parallels Desktop 17.1.3 and check if still the issue persists.
