    Hello,

    There’s an easy way to show or hide files in macOS—just press Command + Shift + .

  2. djperes says:

    Finally, I have found a way to better explain how to make this work.

    This and the previous version had a very bad explanation, I have had many problems to install it and many users have also had them, by bad explanation.

    1. Open the DMG file.

    2. As the colleague alexjenn said, press Command + Shift + . (dot)

    3. Go to the Extras folder, there you will find the Parallels Desktop.app.

    4. Copy Parallels Desktop.app to the Applications folder.

    5. Open the Terminal and paste this: codesign –sign – –force –deep /Applications/Parallels\ Desktop.app

    6. Run Parallels Desktop.app and install normally. If you already had a previous installation of Windows or any other operating system, you will see it reappear but with the new version of Parallels Desktop.

    7. Press Command + Shift + again. (dot) if you want to hide hidden files again.

  3. jakeypal says:

    Thanks. But even after showing hidden files there is NO Parallels Desktop.app in the Extras folder! How do you extract it?

  4. djperes says:

    Ok when I said that it will be inside the extra Extra folder, it was to be able to easily see the Parallels Desktop application inside a MAC folder, just below the original Install.app that doesn’t start.

    If once you open the DMG press Command + Shift + . (dot button) and go to the right inside that DMG, you will see there the Parallels Desktop.app application.

  5. danielbaggio says:

    Hi djperes, first I find the app inside base folder, before EXTRA.

    Second, are you sure about this command line ? Its not making effect for me.

    I am receiving that:

    Usage: codesign -s identity [-fv*] [-o flags] [-r reqs] [-i ident] path … # sign
    codesign -v [-v*] [-R=|-R ] path|[+]pid … # verify
    codesign -d [options] path … # display contents
    codesign -h pid … # display hosting paths

  6. danielbaggio says:

    I am using Mojave 14.3 and its not working

  7. djperes says:

    Hello danielbaggio

    Try clicking on an empty area of the desktop before pressing Command + Shift + .

    That way it works perfectly for me and all the hidden files appear (unless you already have them active, in which case they will be hidden again). Every time you do that button combination, the hidden files appear and disappear consecutively.

    It’s true that Parallels Desktop.app appears before Extra, my intention was to make it easier to see from a Finder window, but it’s inside the same DMG window, to the right of it.

    Once you have copied Parallels Desktop.app into the Applications folder, you can run the code from the terminal and everything will be fine.

  8. djperes says:

    Button combination does not include the PLUS key

    The right combination would be:

    Command => Shift => . (dot button)

    Just in case.

  9. danielbaggio says:

    I find the app, send it to application folder and run the command … when I try to run the app inside the application folder, it crash, like occurs with CLEAN MY MAC 4.2.1 ! Are you using the last Mojave >?

    obs: I already have an older version on Paralles 4.1.0 running ok

  10. djperes says:

    My version of Mojave is: 10.14.3 (18D109) and also had a previous version of Parallels (14.0.1)

    Now after doing the steps, I have the 14.1.1 fully functional.

  11. danielbaggio says:

    My god … let me try again. Is there anything extra ?

  12. djperes says:

    As far as I know, that’s what I’ve done, but post anything that comes out, in case I can give you a hand.

  13. jakeypal says:

    Thank you, djperes! I finally found hidden Parallels Desktop.app in the DMG file. Somehow double-clicking the dmg file within the 1st dmg file does not show it. I see irrelevant files. I had to select the second mounted DMG in Finder and then jump through the hoops as you suggested. With SIP enabled, you have to xattr before code sign. Finally, success

  14. turoo12 says:

    I’ve improved the steps above. The following worked for me:

    1. Open the DMG file
    2. Press Command + Shift + . (dot) (show/hide hidden files)
    3. Inside the DMG next to the Install.app and Extras folder there’s Parallels Desktop.app
    4. Copy Parallels Desktop.app to the Applications folder
    5. Issue the following one by one in Terminal:
    xattr -cr /Applications/Parallels\ Desktop.app
    chflags nohidden /Applications/Parallels\ Desktop.app
    codesign –sign – –force –deep /Applications/Parallels\ Desktop.app
    killall Finder
    6. Run Parallels Desktop.app and install normally. If you already had a previous installation of Windows or any other operating system, you will see it reappear but with the new version of Parallels Desktop.
    7. Press Command + Shift + again. (dot) if you want to hide hidden files again.

  15. turoo12 says:

    The comment automatically adds extra space in –force. It should be –force (no space)

    codesign –sign – –force –deep /Applications/Parallels\ Desktop.app

    Any help would be appreciated…I’ve tried the given steps numerous times and always get the same issues…

  20. weapons777 says:

    Correct syntax:

    codesign –sign – –force –deep /Applications/Parallels\ Desktop.app

  21. Viva says:

    7. Open Parallels Desktop.app in your /Applications/ directory
    8. DONE, enjoy it!

  22. hyp says:

    not work. When open app an error: Consult the developer to make sure that Parallels Desktop works with this version of macOS. You may need to reinstall the application. Be sure to install all the updates available for the application and for macOS.
    IT’S a developer/certificate problem… not work command “code sign”
    The only way is do disable SIP protection on OS X but is not good….

  23. danielbaggio says:

    Hahaha, its very good to know litmusician. My Mojave is a BR Portuguese version. Maybe is that the problem

  24. danielbaggio says:

    What is not working is the CODESIGN … look, if i do the code sign without any extra command or with all the command, its the same.

    MacBook-Pro-de-Daniel:~ danielbaggio$ codesign – –force –deep /Applications/Parallels\ Desktop.app
    Usage: codesign -s identity [-fv*] [-o flags] [-r reqs] [-i ident] path … # sign
    codesign -v [-v*] [-R=|-R ] path|[+]pid … # verify
    codesign -d [options] path … # display contents
    codesign -h pid … # display hosting paths

    MacBook-Pro-de-Daniel:~ danielbaggio$ codesign
    Usage: codesign -s identity [-fv*] [-o flags] [-r reqs] [-i ident] path … # sign
    codesign -v [-v*] [-R=|-R ] path|[+]pid … # verify
    codesign -d [options] path … # display contents
    codesign -h pid … # display hosting paths
    MacBook-Pro-de-Daniel:~ danielbaggio$

  25. litmusician says:

    Viva – Hi! I followed each and every step that you listed and when I try to start the Parallels app – it bounces once in the dock and will not start up. I still get the following after pasting the code sign line in Terminal:

    MacBook-Pro:~ litmusician1$ codesign –sign – –force –deep /Applications/Parallels\ Desktop.app/
    Usage: codesign -s identity [-fv*] [-o flags] [-r reqs] [-i ident] path … # sign
    codesign -v [-v*] [-R=|-R ] path|[+]pid … # verify
    codesign -d [options] path … # display contents
    codesign -h pid … # display hosting paths

    What am I missing?????

  26. litmusician says:

    Daniel – you and I are getting the same results. Hopefully someone will be able to help us figure out what we are missing,,,

  27. danielbaggio says:

    I don’t have XCODE installed ? Do I need it to work ?

  28. litmusician says:

    I don’t believe I have XCODE either.

  29. litmusician says:

    Just downloaded and installed XCODE…tried the above step by step directness and still no good.

  30. danielbaggio says:

    Ok, Thanks to reply.

  31. abiddine says:

    Ok. This worked for me:
    1. Boot into recovery mode by holding CMD + R during boot
    2. Open the terminal and run the following command to disable SIP:
    csrutil enable
    3. Boot back into macOS and Install Parallels Desktop
    4. Boot back into recovery mode and run the following to reenable SIP:
    csrutil disable
    5. Boot back into macOS, open the terminal, and run the following commands:
    sudo xattr -cr /Applications/Parallels\ Desktop.app
    sudo codesign –sign – –force –deep /Applications/Parallels\ Desktop.app

  32. hyp says:

    sorry but you have made a procedure for which you leave the SIP disabled; it has already been pointed out that with the SIP disabled, Parallels works and there is no need for terminal commands. You with point 4, if you have done this procedure, you have left the SIP disabled for which the App works in any case without further string from the terminal

  33. hyp says:

    and in any case the commands from the terminal:
    sudo xattr -cr / Applications / Parallels \ Desktop.app
    sudo codesign -sign – -force -deep / Applications / Parallels \ Desktop.app
    they do not work, same problem or developer, etc

  34. hyp says:

    or me, the App has not been cracked as in previous versions, some mistakes have been made; on mojave Parallels works fine up to version 14.0.1; version 14.1 started to have some problems because maybe some mistakes were made during the crack phase

  35. danielbaggio says:

    Yes, now its working ! Follow this:

    1. Open the dmg file you downloaded named ‘Parallels Desktop 14.1.1-45476 [TNT].dmg’
    2. Go to Finder menu ‘View’, change to ‘as List’
    3. Press the Command + Shift + . (dot) to show the hidden files, you can find a file named ‘Parallels Desktop.app’.
    BTW. You can press the same shortcut key again to hide all hidden files.
    4. Copy the hidden file ‘Parallels Desktop.app’ to the directory /Applications/

    5. Open Terminal and paste:

    5.1: chflags nohidden /Applications/Parallels\ Desktop.app

    5.2: (HERE IS THE PROBLEM, PEOPLE ARE PASTING WITH ONE – BEFORE CODESIGN): codesign –sign – –force –deep /Applications/Parallels\ Desktop.app

    6: Now you can run Parallels app

  36. danielbaggio says:

    NOOOO, THE CODESIGN IS WRONG WHEN WE PASTE !

    You should use the first CODESIGN command, which you already have on the page, before the comments, which has the gray background. That one is correct, with the strokes before the sign. For some reason, when we copy the command in the comment, it joins the dashes (- -) and turns it into one thing, leaving the command wrong.

  37. hyp says:

    not work for me; the response:
    /Applications/Parallels Desktop.app: replacing existing signature
    xcrun: error: invalid active developer path (/Library/Developer/CommandLineTools), missing xcrun at: /Library/Developer/CommandLineTools/usr/bin/xcrun
    /Applications/Parallels Desktop.app: the codesign_allocate helper tool cannot be found or used
    In subcomponent: /Applications/Parallels Desktop.app/Contents/MacOS/prl_disk_tool

  38. hyp says:

    the app, after, not start… same problem

  39. litmusician says:

    I will try once again with the above guidance. Wish me luck Daniel! Glad you got it to work!

  40. hyp says:

    i have typed also:
    xattr -cr /Applications/Parallels\ Desktop.app

    and then
    codesign –sign – –force –deep /Applications/Parallels\ Desktop.app

    APP NOT WORK… The app work only with SIP disabled

  41. hyp says:

    yes, I typed the commands in the first post those with gray background, it does not work

  42. hyp says:

    ok… is necessary install Xcode with command: xcode-select –install

    and then maybe work…

  43. hyp says:

    NOW WORK!!!!!! Is necessary to install Xcode with terminal command: xcode-select –install

    and then the code sign terminal command and NOW WORK…. OH GOD!!! THANKS

  44. hyp says:

    xcode-select –install (ONE – and then TWO -)

  45. hyp says:

    the copy and paste modify the command line…..

  46. danielbaggio says:

    I don’t have Xcode … but now its working

  47. hyp says:

    I don’t know… without Xcode for me not work the command terminal : codesign ….. etc…..

    with Xcode now the command worked and the app installed

  48. litmusician says:

    Tried the above and now I get the following message in Terminal:
    ign: no identity found

    Will keep trying ugh!

  49. litmusician says:

    This nutcase finally got it to work! Instead of using the “command – shift – .” method I followed the “defaults write com.apple.finder AppleShowAllFiles Yes && killall Finder” instead and for some reason (I don’t care why, how, or due to what) – it worked! Finally!

  50. Perplexxer says:

    Fellas, to run Parallels it’s not necessary to switch SIP completely off.
    Moreover you can try to use csrutil’s “–without” command (note with two/2 “-“)

    1. reboot in safe mode (cmd+r)
    2. start terminal
    3. csrutil disable
    4. csrutil enable –without kext –without fs
    –> NOTE: be sure to copy 2 “-” as without parameter! again: two “-”
    –> NOTE: kext disables the kernel extension protection and fs the fileSystem
    –> NOTE: all of the other NVRAM parameters to protect SIP will be switched on
    5. reboot

    Open terminal type csrutil status, you’ll see the following:

    Apple Internal: disabled
    Kext Signing: disabled
    Filesystem Protections: disabled
    Debugging Restrictions: enabled
    DTrace Restrictions: enabled
    NVRAM Protections: enabled
    BaseSystem Verification: enabled

    Try to start Parallels
