Unable to connect eToken/ruToken USB device to Windows virtual machine in Parallels Desktop for Mac App Store Edition

2 users found this article helpful


I cannot connect my USB key which has an authentication mechanism (eToken/ruToken) to my Windows virtual machine. I get this error message:

    Unable to connect the USB device to your virtual machine. The device cannot be connected now. Please try again later.


Due to an Apple® limitation, such devices are not supported in Parallels Desktop for Mac App Store Edition.


Upgrade to the full version of Parallels Desktop to be able to use the device.
