I cannot start Parallels Desktop, the process fails with the error:



Host OS misconfiguration / Codedesign Utility corruption


  1. Run Terminal (open Finder and go to /Applications/Utilities/Terminal.app), copy the line below into Terminal window and press Return/Enter:

        sudo mv /usr/bin/codesign.bak /usr/bin/codesign
  2. Enter your Mac user account password. You will not see characters, this is normal Terminal behavior. Just enter your password and press Return/Enter.

  3. Start Parallels Desktop.
