    Well upgrading to 16.1.2 (49151) put me in the same position again - "Unable to start Parallels services" grrrrrrrr
    This solution worked for me, I didn't try deleting the KernelExtensionManagement folder, but that's something to look forward to trying next time I do a Parallels upgrade.
    WHY IS THIS STILL AN ISSUE? Do Parallels management really not care about this? Seems inconceivable but apparently this is the case.

    I fixed it with this method.
    Easiest way, start mac from an extern drive and delete the /private/var/db/KernelExtensionManagementin.
    Then restart from intern drive and all works fine!
