Symptoms

Windows icon doesn't show up in Dock after starting a virtual machine.

Cause

The virtual machine has incorrect permissions.

Resolution

Open Terminal (Finder > Applications > Utilities > Terminal) and execute the command below:

chmod -RN /path_to_the_pvm_file_of_the_vm/

For example: if I store my Windows 10 virtual machine in /Users/parallelsteam/Parallels/, the command is supposed to look so:

chmod -RN /Users/parallelsteam/Parallels/Windows\ 10.pvm/

You can locate the pvm file of the virtual machine following the steps from the KB 117333.
