it didn't help.
Hello, could you please make a screenshot of the issue and collect the tech report once the issue reproduced please?
I have sent the technical report on the issue - Report ID: 354501213.
I'm using Parallels Desktop 16.1.0 and the pvmp file is still not opening due to a lack of permissions, although I have access to Read&Write both to a file and to a folder.
@Maria@Parallels Hi Maria,
It's been two weeks already since my post - maybe You could give us any news/updates on the topic?
Hi, please sorry for the delay in response, did you update your Parallels Desktop to the latest build, 16.1.1?
I did, but the problem still persists. I get the same message when I try to open VM archive (pvmp)
Could you collect the tech report once the issue reproduced please and post the report's ID here?
The report ID is 356697190. The problem is the same
Here's a workaround that worked for me:
Move the pvmp and sha256.txt files somewhere safe.
Create a new vm with the exact same name as the one you are trying to restore. It just needs to be created. You can immediately abort the OS install (Actions/Stop).
Prepare the new vm for transfer in Parallels Desktop Control Center.
In finder, move the pvmp and sha256.txt files from #1 over the files created in #3, replacing the new files.
In Parallels Desktop Control Center, right click on the vm and "Open Package". Wait for the unpacking to complete.
In Parallels Desktop Control Center, right click on the vm and remove it.
In finder, double click the now-restored pvm directory. This will open in Parallels Desktop Control Center.
Use as normal.
But I got hit without knowing it was enough to double-click.
And I had to edit /Library/Preferences/Parallels/vmdirectorylist.desktop.xml to change the machine's UID according to the unzipped machine that contains your config.pvs
I've had something similar, I think.
I had an archive of a Windows XP machine in a .pvmp file, which was stored on an external drive. I needed to access it again and so I dragged it into the Control Ccenter which seemed to be working. Then all of a sudden I got an error message (I was busy doing something else at the time and so I didn't really make a note of it), and now I'm left with what was previously a 60+GB file is now 20KB, along with a file called Windows XP.pvmunknownp.backup (perhaps linked to the EaseUS Data Recovery session I'm now running?), and a Windows XP.sha256.txt.
At first I thought I was just getting confused with my locations, and when doing a search for "pvmp" in Finder, it found not only the 20KB file, but still showed the 60+GB file in the results, too. When I right-clicked and chose Show in Finder, it took me to the 20KB version.
Although it's not ESSENTIAL that I get this machine back, I find this incredibly frustrating as it means I now have to undertake a lot of work to recreate it as it was configured to restore some very old data from an old Windows laptop backup. Is there something I can do to retrieve the data somehow?
HI, I'm in Control center and it packaged my virtual Windows machine in time machine. How can I unpack it? I have several files on there I need
Hello, please check this KB article for more information and let us know if it's not that case.
