Why Can't I Install Evernote on Windows Under Parallels?

Michael Hyatt

Recommended Posts

I am a Mac user. However, I needed a Windows installation of Evernote for some documentation I am writing. I bought the latest version of Parallels (10.1.2) and installed Windows 8.1. Everything seems to be working fine.


However, I can't install Evernote When I double-click on the Evernote install application, I get a series of error messages. Here is a quick screencast that shows exactly what I am experiencing.


Thanks in advance for your help!

I don't know for sure, but the problem could be with Win 8.1.

I have seen a lot of issues reported in these forums with Evernote running/installing on Win 8 and Win 8.1.


I am running Parallels 10.1.2 with Win7 Pro x64 on my Mac Mavericks without any issues, including Evernote.

How frustrating. I am out if clues. Am on OSX just as you. I have Evernote on Windows using VirtualBox for documentation purposes only. Not ideal but it works. Have been using it on Parallel as well but that was some versions ago.

I had the same problem. The install order seems to be important.

Please uninstall the parallels tools and reboot windows. After this please install Evernote. In my case it worked fine.

You can reinstall the parallels tools later.
