Hey Folks - - I normally use MATLAB on my Mac, but need to use other toolboxes only available in Windows via Parallels. How can I share my license betwen the two operating systems on the same computer?

You could try out the following two things:
  1. Setup your Virtual Network Adapter in bridge mode. Refer to the following link from Parallel to do that: Enable Bridged network in macOS Monterey 12 virtual machine on Mac computers with Apple M1 chips (
  2. You can disable license on MAC and enable it on Windows and when you are done you can disable license on Windows and enable in MAC.
