Could someone help me find where Parallels Tools is located to install. I see it in the dropdown, but it after initializing, it does nothing.
I watched a video on youtube and it looks like Parallels in on a DVD whereas I have it on a USB.
Parallels Desktop 11.1.0 (32202) on a MacBook Pro (Retina, 13-inch, Mid 2014)

Thanks much
