Solutions for various problems with Parallels Desktop
Ways to Bypass an Expired Trial
The only way to reset the trial period is by changing the date in system settings that was before the first activation of the trial period in parallels Desktop 16.5 on your Mac.
Trial reset tests using a script that removes Parallels Desktop 16.5 with all residual files, alas, did not help reset the trial period. It looks like when you authorize in the program, it sends data about your UUID to the Parallels servers and the license is tied to the UUID, and not to the account.
This method only works on Mac Pro and Parallels Desktop Business Edition.
If your trial period has ended, you can still use Parallels Desktop. If you do not have virtual machines, create the one you need, the absence of a trial period will not interfere with this.
To start any virtual machine after your trial period in Parallels Desktop has ended, you must completely close all Parallels Desktop programs, and then run these commands line by line in the terminal:
open -a Parallels\ Desktop
prlctl start "Windows 10"
Instead of Windows 10, the quotes can be any name of your virtual machine created in Parallels Desktop.
