Parallels Desktop 7 Update Fixes File Fault & Full Disk Encryption Problems – Get It Now!

Parallels Desktop 7 Update Fixes File Fault & Full Disk Encryption Problems – Get It Now!

Late yesterday I reported that Parallels Desktop 7 users were experiencing a mysterious problem that required them to log into and restart their Mac notebooks twice before being able to use the Finder Desktop. Parallels has released an update that resolves this really annoying problem. So if you haven’t installed it yet launch Parallels Desktop 7 and run a Check for Updates from the Parallels apps menu. Install the update and you will be good to go – no reason to log in twice now!

The update resolved the problem for my MacBook Air and the problem may have been present in Parallels Desktop 6 too. So if you are using that version of Parallels still please chime in by leaving a comment about your status.

Here’s what the update does for Parallels Desktop 7 users per Parallels:

    nice..

    Heyy Guys, I just got a $829.99 iPåd2 for only $103.37 and my mom got a $1499.99 HDTV for only $251.92, they are both coming with USPS tomorrow. I would be an idiot to ever pay full retail prices at places like Walmart or Bestbuy. I sold a 37″ HDTV to my boss for $600 that I only paid $78.24 for.

    This morning I downgraded back to Parallels 6 and the booting twice problem disappeared. I’ll wait for a bit to read if the Parallels 7 update is worthwhile

    The update worked absolutely fine for Parallels Desktop 7.

    I can confirm that the Parallels Desktop update solved the “double-boot” problem for my encrypted MacBook Air. I’m a happy man again.

    Hi there, I’ve got what I suspect will be a silly question, but I’m confused on what particular file to download to get the update.  Can someone tell me the name of the link that represents the update?  Thank you in advance.
