Please perform the following steps on your Mac:
  1. Make sure you have registered your copy of Parallels Desktop. Do register it if you have not done it yet. You may fail if you proceed without first having registered or if you have not created a Parallels account;

  4. Enter the Email and Password you used when registering Parallels Desktop. Click "Login";

  6. Install the Parallels Mobile app to your mobile device;
