Parallels Desktop, the popular virtualization solution chosen by Mac users worldwide both at work and at home has received an important update that fixes some compatibility issues with the latest version of Snow Leopard.
Install Parallels 10, if you don't already have it. Click File, then New (Command-N) and choose the Apple icon in Parallels to create a new Mac virtual machine. Then click continue. Parallels Desktop will create a software version of a Mac computer (also called a virtual machine or VM) and automatically boot it from the recovery partition of your Mac. Proceed through the macOS setup: select “Reinstall macOS.”. ( Don’t worry here either: this will not affect the macOS installed on your Mac.).
According to the developer, Parallels Desktop build 6.0.12092 improves compatibility with Mac OS X 10.6.8 (Snow Leopard) and includes fixes and improvements that resolve some issues.
One issue is related to the Finder, though Parallels developers fail to note the specifics (at least in the official release notes, at first glance).
Another issue is the Dock being unresponsive while working with icons larger than 128x128 pixels created by Parallels Desktop.
This has been fixed in the latest version of the app.
Parallels asks users to note that when installing this update, some of their shared applications icons may be reset to the default Parallels Desktop icon.
These will look so until Parallels Tools is upgraded in the virtual machine, the company said.
Parallels Desktop for Mac requires an Intel based computer and plenty of RAM so that both the host and the guest operating systems run smoothly.
This week, Parallels also announced the availability of Parallels Desktop 6 for Mac Enterprise Edition.
This version enables IT departments to support Windows-based applications with a configurable solution for business.
Designed to fit into existing business processes to help IT departments reduce the cost of deploying and maintaining client-based software, Parallels Desktop 6 for Mac Enterprise Edition also allows IT departments to choose to deploy and manage client software and virtual environments.

For those planning to switch from PC to Mac, Parallels has a “Transporter” app that automatically transfers music, pictures, bookmarks, and various types of documents from a Windows PC to a computer running Mac OS X.
