    I bought Parallels Desktop 6 Switch to Mac Edition a few months ago before Lion. I got my iMac with Lion a few days ago. Do I need to upgrade to Parallels Desktop 7 Switch to Mac Edition for everything to work properly or can I use the 6 version? The Parallels support is terrible. I cannot even get to them.

    I think it will still work with Parallels 6, but you might want to still upgrade to Parallels 7 (since it improves performance and supports the new Lion features). I'm using Parallels 7 on Lion and it's quite impressive (I was using VMware before that).

    By the way, if you bought Parallels 6 after August 1st you qualify for a free upgrade: http://www.parallels.com/keyfor7/request/

    Thanks, but I bought Parallels Desktop 6 Switch to Mac Edition, not just Parallels Desktop 6.
