This software download of the retail license of Parallels Desktop 15 is optimized for systems running macOS Catalina 10.15, but will work with macOS Sierra 10.12 or later. Backed by a 1-year license, this fast, user-friendly, and powerful application is designed for running Windows on a Mac without needing to reboot. Get up and running in minutes and bring your files, applications, browser bookmarks, and more from your Windows system to your Mac.
