    I got Parallels specific to run Corel Paintshop pro. I have not bought the program as yet because I can not find anyone that is using it in Parallels. So I am a bit nervous about it not working. I have tried an old version that I have and it did not work. Can you give me assurance that I will be able to run Paintshop Pro on Parallels?

    Hi @DanielV18, I understand your concern, but please don't worry, there is a free trial for PaintShop Pro 2022, so I encourage you to download it and try it yourself, it won't harm your computer:

    Do you have Windows already installed in Parallels Desktop? If yes, then please simply download the file via the link above and double click it, it will be opened in Windows automatically for installation. Please let me know how it goes.

    Hello.. I'm likewise having issues trying to run Corel Paintshop Pro 2022 on my Window 11 running on Parallels 17 on my M1 Max Macbook Pro running Mac OS Monterey. When I click on the desktop short cut, I briefly see the yellow splash screen, then it goes away after a few seconds, and then nothing, completely hung. Any insight is greatly appreciated!
