    Hello!

    Today I installed Parallels 8 (Build 8.0.18314).
    I can not find any Image Tool there. Where is it?
    I have disk images in and older format and Parallels 8 is not able to use this images.
    When I try to use this images (add it as virtual disk) I get a message that the disks are defective. I also get a message that the discs have to be converted which fails immediately.
    I can mount this discs with image mounter.
    I use this images in a virtual box machine which works fine. When I try to open this machine with Parallels I also get the offer to convert this machine but this fails as well with a message that this machine is not stopped, which for sure isn't right.
    Any Idea?

    Hi

    Parallels Image Tool is not a part of Parallels Desktop anymore.
    I will try to find workaround for the issue with conversion from old disk format.

    Thanks for the report!

    That's sad that the image tool is not part of the parallel.

    Parallels Image Tool was integrated with Parallels Desktop VM configuration wizard. Also prl_disk_tool (command line tool) is available from Terminal.

    As result:
    1) functionality was not dropped, it was moved to VM config editor
    2) disk management is available for scripts via prl_disk_tool
