"After 3 years of screwing around with this program and developer I'm done"

I purchased the full version with my Mac paying full dollar for it at the time. A couple years later it was necessary to update from Parallels 7 to 9. To which again I paid full price. I loaded the program and tried to update. After several hours I could not and gave up. I contacted support and after 2 hours of screwing around with them they finally got it to work. Less than 90 days later Parallels 10 came out and was I offered a reduced or free upgrade NO, not at all after spending $80 less than 90 days prior to this they wanted another $80 to upgrade. To which I said screw them and let it alone. I now needed this program and called support and they told me there was nothing they could do and I would have to pay full price even though this program has never really worked under any update and I abandoned the program entirely.

Be forewarned the support sucks and they are only after your money and give no concern to customer service.

Pros
  • when it worked it ran my windows programs
Cons
  • everything from the program to support and customer service
