Deceptive advertising and licensing practice

    I've been using ParallelsVM Desktop Pro a little here-n-there. I paid about $80 ( it was a special) for it however I had no idea I'd be purchasing "a subscription" when I bought and paid for what I thought was the SW outright. Now my Parallel's VM says its going to expire unless I Activate ( and pay anohter $99) "subscription". This is very deceptive marketing/advertising. I can fully understand that I might no longer get updates but to actually shut the SW off is horrible practice. I will go back to my PC w/ VirtualBox and tell others on Mac's to beware...

    Hello, we are sorry about the misconception you have got. But Parallels Desktop Pro Edition and Business Edition is yearly subscription only.
