Symptoms

The following error appears during the Parallels Desktop for Mac activation: This activation key cannot be used with this version.

Resolution

This message means that you are entering a 2.x version key code trying to activate version 3.0. A 2.x version key code will not activate the current version. In order to activate version 3.0, an upgrade key must be purchased (from parallels.com).
