    I have been working from home. I find myself struggling to complete my work working on Macs. Now more than ever, it is important for users to be enabled to either pay fraction of the cost of an original or just enable them to access multiple computers. I understand the financial issues with granting users such an opportunity but at the same time, it is important for any company to listen to its users.

    definitely agree with everyone supporting license switching here. It is a major problem that prevents me from renewing Parallels. Licenses should be per-person, not per-device. Many colleagues feel the same, you've just lost 4 renewals - VM may not be perfect but neither is your business model which is damaging sales!

Adobe learned the hard way....

    Is it possible to use a single license for two computers? Then its a good idea. Many of them facing this issue and can solved with this method.

    Hello, as per the End User License Agreement terms and conditions, one Parallels Desktop for Mac license can only be used for a single Mac, please refer to https://kb.parallels.com/112971 to know about Parallels Desktop for Mac licensing policy. Thanks, Parallels Team.
     
  6. Hello, I'm not sure my post is in the right place but my English level explains this. I have been looking for more than a week to obtain a refund of a subscription for which I have not received an invoice and for which I do not need, but after numerous reminders via the procedure with ticket, I have no return. it is clearly mentioned next to the "current" ticket, but day by day nothing changes. Can you tell me if there is an email address to contact the after-sales service? Thanks in advance.
     
  7. can a modulator delete my post which is no longer relevant. I also want to unsubscribe from your forum. cordially.

    Bind the license to the user, not the computer. For Mac users, it should be easy to bind to the main Apple ID. With the type of users needing a tool like Parallels, I imagine multiple computer use is the norm. I personally use two Macs, two iPads and an iPhone regularly. They are all under the same Apple ID. Even Microsoft allows concurrent installation of their Office Suite on all of these devices...

    I have about 10 Macs which need Parallels - I have to say that over the 15 years that I have been using Parallels I have not seen a single benefit in the last 5 years. Of course much of the blame lies in the fact that Windows has become slower but I think I would happily be able to use older versions of Parallels.

    I remember using version 11 for many years without any problems until I think it had to be upgraded for one of the latest versions of macOS - with that in mind and seeing that there are no great improvements in Parallels - I think the high fee of AUD$109 for a licence for 1 Mac is unfair.
    Does anyone else agree especially when one has multiple Macs and windows is only used for just 1 app.

    frankly i think the only way they will implement this feature is if it costs them the business. To that end, i will be moving off Parallels at renewal time.
