    What version of Parallels do you have?

    That's the problem. You don't have the right version.

    Yes, you need to download the latest version build 4128 - which is version 3.0. Build 3212 is V2.5 - not logical but there it is.

    If you want to use this only for games, you might want to consider downloading and requesting a trial key before buying it. Actually if you want to run a game, you should consider using bootcamp alone.

    However, if it is something other then a game, do the trial.

    Hello awwcomeon
    If you bought Parallels Desktop after 1st May, you can get free update to 3.0.
