    So on Parallels Desktop 18 on an M2 Macbook Air;
    • Ubuntu Linux 22.04, 21.10, 21.04, 20.10, 20.04 
    • Fedora Workstation 37, 36, 35, 34, 33-1.2 
    • Red Hat Enterprise Linux 9
    • Debian GNU/Linux 11, 10 
    • Kali Linux 2022.2, 2022.1, 2021.3
    Does anyone know where these installer files are being downloaded, or are you downloading a pre-built archive file, extracting it and then deleting the archive - is there any way we can see the workings of this or check to see that the archive file has actually been deleted after its extracted presumably into the virtual machines directory? Is there a location you could give for us to check where you have these archives set to download to?

    There is nothing in the KB about this and with Windows you put the ISO into the ~/Downloads folder, can't see anything download related from any of the above Linux distributions when you run the setup from within the Parallels Desktop new host menu.

    Any extra info you can give on this topic would be greatly appreciated as it's obviously a slightly odd way to do it and the software gives no info about what it's doing nor are there any settings about temporary download locations, etc.

    Thanks in advance.
