* Please note that Parallels Desktop 11 and 12 only partially support working in macOS High Sierra environment due to technical reasons and the following issues can occur:

  1. Inability to create a virtual machine with High Sierra guest OS
  2. Issues with creating a Boot Camp based virtual machine
  3. Graphics artifacts
  4. Coherence windows might appear under macOS ones
  5. Issues with starting a virtual machine and shared applications

To avoid these issues we recommend to upgrade to Parallels Desktop 13 or higher.
