    Hello, I'm having a similar issue. My Mac laptop died, I received a new mac, and restored a Time Machine backup from my old laptop to new. Now when I enter my parallels license key, I'm told that my product license has reached the max activation limit. Please help!

    On my MacBook, I upgraded to Sierra from 10.6.8 and tried to see if Parallels 8 would work there; it would not open, then I returned to my cloned desktop 10.6.8 computer, so I could work and got the error "Your product activation key reached its activation limit ..." Can you please help me resolve this? With Thanks -Lawrence Strauss

    Hi LawrenceS2. Please quit Parallels Desktop now, launch it again and re-attempt the activation.

    We have reset the activation key. Please follow the instructions below:
    1. Quit Parallels Desktop, then try to activate after launching it again.
    2. If you are still unable to activate, Open Terminal on the Mac and execute this command: prlsrvctl activate-license-online

    The Parallels End User License Agreement states that you may use one copy of the Software activated by a license key on a single instance owned, leased, or otherwise controlled by you. To ensure this policy activation limit is there. Let us know if you have any other questions.

    Yes, please contact us whenever the limit is reached - and you will need to do so only as rarely as your Parallels Desktop license is switched to another Mac multiple times.

    Only when you need to. It is not "mandatory" to switch your license to another machine once in a while. You can very well use your license on the same Mac indefinitely.
