Connecting USB to Windows7 through Parallels

I updated my #MacMini to OSX El Captan (maybe only a new version).  Unfortunately it disconnected my USB devises from Parrallels’s desktop with which i run my Windows7 virtual machine. 

Parallels Support


The problem got solved by pulling the USB cable out of it’s socket, while the virtual machine was running, and plugging it back in.  Then the 2 usb devises connected up to Windows2 automatically. 

Now i wonder if this will stick or will i need to connect and disconnect the devises every time.
So i can get it connected by unplugging the usb cables and then the connection finds itself. 

#sethhmmm There has got to be a better way !!!

El Cap requires a new version of Parallels. That’s why I waited so long to up from Mavricks to El Cap. Had to purchase it.

p.s. Just upgraded to Sierra last night … it’s slick! The new built in Siri rocks!

p.p.s With Sierra out now, why would you only be going to El Cap? Sierra is even more bug free and no new upgrade issues except in the area of Apple cloud services.

I had thought i had already purchaced the new version of Parallels.  Anyway i got it working.

But now i am confused … i Thout El Cap was the newest op system.   So now i am still behind?


← this is what i got running now.

Si says
Yes, you are still behind. Sierra came out 2 weeks ago. I just now installed it.  

It has fully integrated Siri built in, like the iPhone but with more features … really cool!

ok a more aware study of this allowed me to connect my printer and scale again …









← note … this setting allowed the connection to happen.  I do not remember doing that yesterday.

After that setting was set i plugged in the devises and they automatically connected.

Also note that both the panels were unlocked.
