Once Parallels Desktop is installed, you need to activate it and register. Do the following:
- First you need to sign in to your Parallels account:
- If you have an account, enter your email address, select I have a password, enter the password and click Sign In.
- If you don't have a Parallels account, enter an email address that will be used to create the account, select I'm a new user, click Sign In and follow the onscreen instructions.
