When enabling 'Share Mac applications with Windows' some apps are not transferred to Windows side

APPLIES TO:
  • Parallels Desktop for Mac
  • Parallels Desktop for Mac Pro Edition

Symptoms

When enabling 'Share Mac applications with Windows', you do not see your application in the list of applications (when using 'Open with...') and in AppData/Roaming/Parallels/Shared Applications/

Cause

Some of the Mac apps are not really transfered to the Windows side. This happens because Parallels Desktop cannot detect them due to their structure singularity. Usually these are java-based apps. Also it happens with LibreOffice, OpenOffice, Adobe Photoshop, etc.

Resolution

As a workaround please do the following (example is for Adobe Photoshop app):

  1. Open Finder/Applications
  2. Copy Adobe Photoshop.app file from Adobe Photoshop CC bundle to Applications folder.
  3. Choose Adobe Photoshop as a default program on Windows side.

  4. Restart Mac to apply changes.
