Parallels Desktop 12.2.0

Parallels has released Parallels Desktop version 12.2.0 (build 41591), addressing overall stability and performance issues as well as several bugs. The virtualization software corrects an issue where Boot Camp virtual machine applications didn’t appear in the Dock, fixes a bug that prevented dragging and dropping of files from the Mac to the Windows 10 Creators Update, resolves an issue with Web pages opening in Windows 10 Creators Update instead of on the Mac, and fixes a bug that reinstalled Parallels Tools every time a Boot Camp virtual machine configuration was changed. ($79.99 new for standard edition, $99.99 annual subscription for Pro/Business Edition, free update, 256 MB, release notes, 10.10.5+)
