    Just upgraded to 5600 on Macbook Air, trying to install Parallels Tools & I get a message that there must be at least one cd/dvd drive in my configuration. Mac book Air has no drive, Any idea how to get around this?

    I am having exactly this same problem on my MacBook Air. I, too, just upgraded to 5600. Help! I keep having Parallels freeze while running Microsoft XP, due to a problem with the video memory -- no doubt related to the fact that I cannot update Parallel Tools due to the issue noted by howiefish.

    Parallels Desktop -<Virtual Machine name>-Edit-Virtual Machine
    Check is there any CD-DVD, if not add CD-DVD hardware, select use image file and select /Library/Parallels/Tools/vmtools.iso
    Start VM
