I successfully installed CloudWare in Parallels 15. Host is a MacBook Pro 13 2017. It runs great, except for the mouse pointer that disappears when:
1) the VM is not in full screen; or
2) MacOS task bar on the top of the screen is accessed while VM is running in full screen.
By clicking Control+Option on the keyboard, Parallels releases the mouse to MacOS, what allows me to move to pointer to where I want. When I click to activate the mouse in the VM, the pointer disappears again...the clicks of the mouse still work, the pointer is just no visible.
I can also see the pointer after it vanishes by quickly moving my mouse... MacOS magnifies the pointer, but it immediately goes away again in the VM.
The work around is to exit full screen mode in the VM, click once on the window bar, and put back to full screen. This action enables the mouse pointer again and I can use it normally, until some of the situations I listed at the beginning of this post happens.
I tried adding the command video.hw_pointer=0 in Parallels boot flags. It improved the behavior, but it didn't solve it completely. I also tried mouse game mode in Parallels but it makes the pointer completely unstable and unusable.
A second problem (not I'm not concerned yet) is the page scrolling (2 fingers gesture) no be working in the VM.
