    How do we selectively install components of Parallels Tools for Windows. Many of us only require one maybe 2 components, such as Dynamic Resolution.

    How do we ONLY/SELECTIVELY install a SINGLE FEATURE at a time and nothing else in the Parallels Tools Package?
    • Dynamic Resolution Tool
    • Clipboard Synchronization Tool
    • Drag-and-Drop Tool
    • Mouse Synchronization Tool

    Are there any solutions out there? Does Parallels monitor these forums to help its customers?

    Parallels Tools is a set of drivers that allow your VM to run properly.

    Yes, thank you for the insight, there is no confusion about the fact that Parallels tools contains the drivers.

    The question is: How do we install drivers selectively? Only 4 drivers are required, the drivers for:
    • Dynamic Resolution Tool
    • Clipboard Synchronization Tool
    • Drag-and-Drop Tool
    • Mouse Synchronization Tool
    .....and not any of the others. How do we install just these?

    As I said Parallels Tools is a set of drivers. It allows you to run your virtual environment with ease, Yes you can run your vm without Parallels Tools but your VM will not run seamlessly. I don't believe that they can be installed individually, Parallels ToolBox is a separated set of tools that you don't need to install at all. (But they are nice to have and use) Parallels tool information.
