Parallels, when you just have to run Windows Applications on even older Macs.

I use a 13” 2010 MacBook Pro for portable computing. The 13” is unique among old MacBooks in that it recognizes 16 GB memory and when I added a SSD it works well. I updated Mac O/S several times and now run High Sierra, the last that will run on this MacBook Pro. I had not run Windows and Parallels for a while. When I needed it to run Durametric, a Windows based OBDC2 for my Boxster to check codes, my old Parallels would not run. I determined that Parallels12 was most compatible. Parallels 12 installed easily with no issues. After installation, Windows and Durametric ran fine and I cleared my “check engine” light after I affected repairs. I have used Parallels since it replaced Connectix Virtual PC and it is a great tool, getting better with each release.

Works MUCH better than VMware Fusion

I found that on the same Mac, Parallels VM in most cases works much better than exactly the same VM works under VMware Fusion. Performance is noticeably faster, the CPU temperature is much lower.
