    AND If you can't start Parallels Client at all then you might need to disable Print Cache. Set the following registry key value to "false" (0):
    [HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Parallels\AppServerClient] "PrintUseCache"=dword:00000000

    I've looked at connection properties and advanced properties. No printing option found.
    Is there an older version of the client we can download so I can get my people reconnected asap?

    My preference is to avoid registry changes, removing WU or changing WU settings. It's simply not feasible to ask my users to do that to their personal devices.
    I'm working through this on two laptops a user brought me "to fix".
    Because that is my preference, I first tried rolling back the client but it crashed even with versions 16.5, 16, or 15.5.
    Since that didn't work I went ahead and uninstalled KB 4524147, rebooted, and then reinstalled v17.0. Before that reboot, I also disabled installation or reinstallation of WU for 30 days to give Parallels time to roll out a Client that works with that KB.
    Removing the KB wasn't enough. The Client still crashed.
    I could not locate printing in Connection Properties until I remove the connection that carried over and created a new one. On creating it I could get to Printing > Technology > User, and there change it from RAS University Printing to None.
    Making that change wasn't enough. On connecting the Client was stable or seemed stable, but the launched app crashed shortly after being opened.
    I then changed the registry setting and reboot. Now, finally, the Client and apps didn't crash.
    It is my hope Parallels comes up with a solution ASAP. It's only a matter of time before someone else calls me or I'm asked to make a house call "to fix" the problem.
