I am unable to start Parallels Desktop. It fails with the error:

alttext

Cause

Host OS misconfiguration.

Resolution

Please try to perform this instruction

In case it does not help, Cleanup "CrashReporter" and "DiagnosticsReports" directories :

  1. Make sure that Parallels Desktop app is closed.
  2. Open "Console.app" (/Finder/Applications/Utilities/Console.app)
  3. View > Show Log list (this will unhide (if hidden) right panel bar with logs files list)

Here you you will have to clean "DiagnosticReports" and "CrashReporter" folders from both locations: /Library/Logs and ~/Library/Logs. So as result you need to clean 4 folders if they are presenting in your system. (4 is a maximum, this amount depends of the type of OS X that you are using)
