I cannot see my Virtual Machine after upgrading to Mac OS X Lion

  • Parallels Desktop 6 for Mac


The Virtual Machine (VM) window is not visible after upgrade from Mac OS X Snow Leopard to Mac OS X Lion while the live screenshot in the Dock  and in the VM list  indicates that the VM is running.


Parallels Desktop for Mac 6 was running in another space prior to the Mac OS upgrade to Lion.


Please perform the following steps:
1) Go to Applications on the Mac side and start Mission Control app:

2) Delete all spaces.
To delete a space you can hold the ALT button and press the cross.

3) Restart Parallels Desktop

4) Start the Virtual Machine

Add removed Spaces if you like. The Virtual Machine window will appear in the 1st space.
