ACTIVATION INSTRUCTIONS

An upgrade to Parallels Desktop 10 for Mac can be activated:

Immediate Activation

Once you register your key, the application will prompt to activate it.

Note: An Internet connection is required for immediate activation.

  • Enter your activation key (dashes will be added automatically):

  • Once you enter the key, it will be validated.
  • If the key is valid, it will be marked with a check. If the key is not valid, it will be marked with a red cross. If the cross appears, make sure you entered the key correctly and try submitting it again.
