    Hi,

    Hi, I'm experiencing the same problem. Every time I click 'Get Trial', there's a messaging stating "Unable to request a trial key.". I'm using Parallels 10.

    Hi:
    I had Paralles 8 installed on my macbook pro with Lion. I need to install Yosemite and I know I am entitled to free upgrade to Parallels 10 but it does not accept my Parallels 8 activation key. I just read that trial versions of 10 are no longer available. I don't need yet Paralles 11 because could not yet intsal El Captain due to compatibility issues with other software I use. Tomorrow is a working day and I need to fix it. I am in Brazil time zone.
    thanks.

    I just installed Parallels 10 in Mac OS X Yosemite Beta. When trying to get a trial key, it shows: "Unable to get trial key, check your internet connection and try again". (Original message in spanish). Internet connection is working

    Hi Hal1,
    Please check out this article to know the compatibility of Mac OS X and Parallels Desktop. Parallels Online Store only offers the latest version of Parallels Desktop. Thus, if you would like to buy any of the previous versions, please check if it is offered by your local resellers or authorized online resellers like Apple, Amazon etc.

    Hi,
    I have logged a ticket about this. I have a special situation where I need to transfer an en situ bootcamp partition from an old 2007 mac to a VM file to be used on a different Mac running a legit OEM Parallels 11 license. The old Mac is on 10.8.5 and is very slow. The work required to upgrade this older Mac and the risk to the bootcamp partition in doing so is not cost effective for my client. I've already installed the Paragon driver so the bootcamp partition can be seen from the OS X partition, etc. Now I run into this problem of not being to do a trial activation--argh!!!1!!! Please reconsider handing out Parallel 10 trial keys for those of us with legacy systems we're trying to ditch/support to get clients using your product on new systems! Upgrading this iMac's hardware is not a good option. I could boot off an external drive with a later system and install a trial version of Parallels 11 there but that is kind of a crazy option for what should be a simple operation...

    Best regards, Timbo

    hi,
    I'm also with the same problem. When I enter in the Activation Window, push Get Trial and always get the message "unable to request a trial key".

    Can I get a trial key by email to activate the product ?

    Hi,

    I'm unable to install Parallels 11 as my o/s won't support it. I can't upgrade my o/s yet as my server won't support it. I need to try parallels 10 to see if I can read the EXT2 server disks on my Mac as my server has recently died. If I can't read my disks, I'm stuffed.

    Please advise if there's any way you can assist.

    TIA,
    Alastair
