I am trying to open Parallels then open a specific virtual machine. The following script opens parallels selects the menu item which shows a dialog box with three VM’s in it. I cannot figure out how to select one of these. I have tried counting the names but that returns error 1728.
tell application "Parallels Desktop" to activate delay 5 tell application "System Events" tell application process "Parallels Desktop" tell menu "Window" of menu bar 1 click menu item "virtual Machines List" set theName to items of menu item "Virtual machines list" as text display dialog (count items in theName) end tell end tell end tell
I note there is a reference in results to application process “prl_client_app” which I have not seen before
TRied to open the actual file once parallels was running using the finder but that does not appear to work. any suggestions very much appreciated
