Unable to install or start Parallels Desktop after upgrading to macOS High Sierra 10.13 Developer Beta 4

  • Parallels Desktop for Mac Business Edition
  • Parallels Desktop for Mac Home Edition
  • Parallels Desktop for Mac Pro Edition


  • After updating macOS High Sierra to Developer Beta 4 (build 17A315i), I am no longer able to launch or install Parallels Desktop. I am offered to allow Parallels Desktop kernel extensions at System Preferences > Security & Privacy tab > General > Parallels International Gmbh, but clicking Allow does not make any difference:


Update macOS High Sierra to Developer Beta 5 (build 15A5341f) or later.
