How can I upgrade Parallels Desktop for Mac? Do I need to reinstall everything completely? Will I lose my existing VMs because of upgrade?

APPLIES TO:
  • Parallels Desktop 4 for Mac Standard Edition
  • Parallels Desktop 3 for Mac Standard Edition
  • Parallels Desktop 2.x for Mac Standard Edition

Resolution

Just run the Parallels Desktop installer of a later version, and it will automatically upgrade the existing Parallels Desktop installation. The upgrade procedure doesn’t affect virtual machine’s files and settings: you will be able to run your VMs created before the upgrade. The only thing you need to do – update Parallels Tools in your VMs with Windows guest OSes.
