    I am using a MAC Studio M2 Ultra and using Parallels 19 to create VMs. However, I am having an issue when trying to create the third VM. When I turn it on, it will turn off a previous VM. And only a maximum of two VMs can run. Does anyone have a solution for this situation?

    Hello,

    Thank you for your feedback,

    Parallels macOS vms on Apple Silicon Macs use the Apple Virtualization framework which limits the number of concurrently running VMs to 2.

    This is a known limitation.

    For more information, please refer to the link https://kb.parallels.com/128867

    Thanks
