    I am running OSX 10.9.2 (Mavericks) and Parallels 9. I got a prompt that a newer version/update of Parallels was available (appeared to be just an update, not an offer to upgrade to a newer version). I clicked "OK" and entered my administrator password. After a few minutes the update froze/wouldn't respond and I had to force quit. Now when I try to open Parallels I get a message that says: "The application Parallels Desktop can't be opened -1712. Any suggestions on how to correct this would be greatly appreciated.

    ?!?! That's it ?!? Your advice is to just uninstall and reinstall? No indication what is wrong or how to fix it?

    I have this same problem now. Mine worked yesterday and not today. No update. Any advice would be appreciated.

    Thank you.

    Hi TimothyNJ,

    We recommend you to download Parallels Desktop from the link

    Now remove Parallels Desktop, then run a repair disk permissions on the Mac disk utility.

    Install Parallels Desktop and start it, the issue is occurred because downloaded file might be broken.

    You seriously ignored every word Timothy said and told him to reinstall a second time, even after he clearly indicated that you were insulting his intelligence by telling him to reinstall?

    I don't even have Parallels, I got here from an unrelated google search; but I'd like you guys to know you are giant fucking asshats.
