After upgrading to Parallels Desktop 17.1.0 some of you might have experienced some difficulties connecting USB devices to their virtual machines.

If you experience an issue with a USB device connectivity in Parallels Desktop 17.1.0, we recommend installing the previous version of Parallels Desktop 17 (17.0.1) by performing the following steps:

  1. Download and run Parallels Desktop 17.0.1 installation image available here.
  2. When running the Parallels Desktop 17.0.1 installer, you will be prompted to update to 17.1.0. Close that window.
  3. And then click No, use current to proceed with installing version 17.0.1.

If downgrading has helped, this would be an indicator of the known glitch mentioned above. In that case, please subscribe to KB 125552 - click Get Updates to get informed once a fix is available.
