    When I set up Parallels by mistake I used the windows 10 Pro for my old laptop and installed a number of applications of course it would not accept the license. I purchased, downloaded and burnt a new copy of Windows 10 Pro .iso. I can't find anything on reinstalling windows with another copy.

    Any help or suggestions Greatly appreciated.

    Would you like to activate Windows 10 Pro or reset it to a new virtual machine?

    I now have a new license and iso image of Windows 10 Pro. I would like to be able to install it over the existing Windows 10 and be able to save all the software and data.

    you have already setup a Windows 10 pro Virtual machine and installed all the applications inside that but the activation key what you have will not activate the Windows 10 pro you installed right?, In this case we have to install a fresh copy of Windows 10 virtual machine and activate it with your product key then you can reinstall the application's inside the new virtual machine.
