    Hi,
    I uninstalled Parallels 10 from my old macbook pro and after installing it on my new one, I got this message: "You have reached the maximum number of activations available for your activation key. Please purchase a new product license."
    Of course I am not going to purchase it again.
    What can be done?
    Thanks!

    Have been waiting for quite some time.
    Got no satisfactory answer.
    Uninstalled Parallels, switched to VMware Fusion.

    My last message (Jan 8, 2015):
    Hi,
    1. Registration e-mail address: xxxx@xxxxx.xxx
    2. As for the eula, I have this to say:
    In order for parallels to be of use to me I have to be able to use it on both my mac pro (when at home) and my macbook pro (when at work).
    If I can use it only at one place, then I can't use it anywhere.
    One = none. Because, what's the use, e.g., of creating a file at home if I am not able to use it at work? None.
    That said, I admit I did not pay any attention to the eula.
    I thought it was obvious I could install on any of my computers. Never occurred to me it could be otherwise.
    So, the way I see it, I have payed for every single upgrade since 2005 (or was it 2007?) all the way through v.10 but I cannot install on my computers.
    Anyway, if you've read this far, thank you for your patience.
    Now, I'd like an answer from you: Just tell me if I will be able to install to another computer or not.
    If not, I will promptly uninstall parallels so that you will be happy and we'll all be legitimate, having acted according to the eula.
    Please, respond, so that I'll be able to go on setting up my new system.
    -----------------------------------------

    As I said, there was no answer to the above,
    and since VMware eula allows me to install to all my computers,
    I had to uninstall Parallels and install VMware Fusion.

    Hi GeorgeF1,

    As per the EULA : http://www.parallels.com/about/legal/eula/ , Parallels Desktop application can be installed and activated only in one computer at the same time. If you are about to change the activation to another Mac, please uninstall the application completely from the previous Mac before installing in the new one.

    Hi,
    I reinstalled my old macbook pro and after installing it on my parallels 9 key will not work, I got this message: "You have reached the maximum number of activations available for your activation key. Please purchase a new product license." I do not want to upgrade IOS because of current applications that are not compatable. So I need to keep parallels 9.

    Abdul, the same thing is happening to me. Apple has replaced my logic board three times and I have been reinstalling every time. No problem until tonight when I tried to install on my newly reformatted drive and it wont let me. I did have time to uninstall the old copy before reformatting this same drive but its still complaining Please help. I just recently bought the upgrade to 10 after upgrading to Yosemite.

    Lån på dagen

    Her vil du finne en rask lån på noen få minutter, enten du er ute etter lån på dagen, små lån av et par hundre kroner, eller hvis du ønsker å låne et større beløp, så vil du finne lånet på denne siden, vil du finne tips og anbefalinger for lån på 18 år, må du være forsiktig når du låne, så det ikke blir for dyrt for deg i lengden på lån du velger.
    Så se deg rundt og se om det er et lån for deg, håper du finner det lånet du søker.
    Noen av disse långivere krever at du er opp til 25 år for å få lån. Det varierer hvor lang tid det tar før du får pengene utbetalt, noen betale lån samme dag. Andre steder kan ta noen dager før pengene for lånet er overført til kontoen din. Alt dette krever at du er godkjent for å få et lån.
    PS: Du har alltid muligheten til å søke om lån på flere steder samtidig, det er ikke alle har de samme kravene, slik at du kan være heldig hvis du noen gang gått ned ett sted, så du kan være heldig å bli godkjent for et lån det neste du søker.
    Så ikke gi opp sende noen programmer av og se om du ikke kan få godkjent for et lån på en av lån selskaper.

    I just completely uninstalled Parallels 10 from my MacBook pro and installed it on my iMac. I am unable to activate it on my new machine. Tells me to "purchase a new product license." Have been parallels since version 8 and have never had this run around before. Please fix ASAP.

    Disregard. I purchased VMWare Fusion and went back to parallels on my MBP.
