    hi @brosenz, you need to remount the /media/cdrom with execute permission:
    sudo mount -oro,exec,remount /media/cdrom
    and then issue the install:
    sudo /media/cdrom/install
    Hope this helps

    What I do to install Tools on Kali:
    • sudo su
    • cp -rp /media/cdrom0 /tmp
    • cd /tmp/cdrom0
    • ./install-gui

    Got it working with these steps.
    sudo apt-get update
    sudo apt-get install dkms
    sudo apt-get install libelf-dev

    Downloaded the 3 file from https://http.kali.org/kali/pool/main/l/linux/
    linux-headers-5.16.0-kali7-arm64_5.16.18-1kali1_arm64.deb
    linux-kbuild-5.16_5.16.18-1kali1_arm64.deb
    linux-headers-5.16.0-kali7-common_5.16.18-1kali1_all.deb

    sudo dpkg -i linux-headers-5.16.0-kali7-common_5.16.18-1kali1_all.deb
    sudo dpkg -i linux-kbuild-5.16_5.16.18-1kali1_arm64.deb
    sudo dpkg -i linux-headers-5.16.0-kali7-arm64_5.16.18-1kali1_arm64.deb

    Install tools
    sudo mount -oro,exec,remount /media/cdrom0
    sudo /media/cdrom0/install

    Hope that helps.

    Steve, as you noticed parallels tools doesnt support kernel 5.18 out of the box yet. Your approach of dropping back to an earlier kernel obviously works, although you couldve dropped back to 5.17.x instead of 5.16.x if you wanted to. The other option wouldve been to patch parallels tools using the 5.18.x patch in the other thread (started by galaxymaster) and keeping the latest kernel.

    Hi There
    I'm following this also as just installed parallels and Kali I've followed as many things as I could and having 0 luck.
    I've installed the files as above via apt install and also done as you suggested above. I've also installed Linux headers I'm on version 5.18.0 for arm 64.

    For me, it starts to install then for no reason just errors. This is a fresh Kali install fully updated

    My Logfile is attached

    Following for an official fix for Kali 2022.2 64bit. I've never had trouble like this with tools until now after recently switching to parallels from the competitors!

    I upgraded to the latest version and updated my Kali instance with updates and I was able to get tools installed finally.

    Hello Guys, Kali 2022.2 is now supported as a guest OS in the Parallels Desktop version 18. Please refer to this KB article to check the Supported Guest Operating Systems. We would suggest you upgrade the Parallels Desktop to version 18 and please check.

    Thank you so much, Asish!

    Everything is working perfectly now! Including the "Use All Displays in Full Screen" option, which wasn't working for me no matter what.

    You guys at Parallels are awesome!
