I just recently upgraded to Parallels 14 from version 12. I normally use it in Windowed mode, launching VMs from the "Control Center". When I start the Parallels application (by double-clicking the application icon), it only gets as far as having the "Parallels" menu and the "Help" menu. I have waited up to 10 minutes, and none of the other menus (File, Edit, View, Window) nor the Control Center ever appear. If I start by double-clicking a VM's *.pvm file, then Parallels still gets stuck in that same state for about 3 minutes. Then the VM finally appears. During the time that Parallels is stuck, there is nothing in Activity Monitor to suggest that any sort of system overload is slowing anything down. What could possibly be wrong? What should I do to fix this?
