Installing Provider

First, make sure that you have Parallels Desktop for Mac and Vagrant properly installed. We recommend you using the latest versions of these products.

Since the Parallels provider is a Vagrant plugin, installing it is easy:

$ vagrant plugin install vagrant-parallels

The Vagrant plugin installer will automatically download and install vagrant-parallels plugin.
