    https://beta.apple.com/sp/betaprogram/

    Go to that web site and sign up for the public beta program then follow the directions from there. Once you enroll your device you will install the update from the app store

    Issue has gone away for me now after I installed the update to Mac OS Sierra (10.12.1).

    Hey guys,
    1. Right-click on the virtual machine name in Control Center and click Configure...
    2. Go to Hardware tab and open Boot order menu.
    3. In this menu go to Advanced Settings and add Boot Flag in the field:
    devices.usb.mouse=0

    Is this just for USB connected mouse devices or will a bluetooth trackpad work as well?

    Hi guys, I would recommend you go to the VM configuration, turn OFF "smooth scrolling" in Actions->Configure->Mouse/Keyboard.
    Then, in Windows Control Panel, set Advanced Mouse Properties->Wheel->"Number of lines at a time" to 1 and let us know how it works.

    The bootflag applies to USB mouse only. Please check out this article if you would like to access Bluetooth trackpad scrolling.

    After the above tweaks, trackpad works *MUCH* better with SublimeText, Notepad++

    @PaulChris@Parallels post should be pinned to the top of these forms. Thanks
