Usually Parallels uses these opportunities to make you buy a new version of Parallels. You might go to their website and check before trying to install it.

I was able to install the preview edition just fine under VMWare.

I received a message from MS that my parallels display adapter (wddm) was not compatible with win 10. So My PC cannot install win 10! received that on two Mac computers/parallels this morning. I have submitted help ticket to parallels.

FWIW VMware is in the same boat. I'm running version 6.something and it gives the same display adapter message. Version 7 has been out for a while but I think I'll just hold off and see if there is a version 8 out that supports El Capitan.

Working like a champ here EXCEPT Coherence mode. It works, but is glitchy. Full screen or windowed is fine using the latest update to Parallels (10.2.2). Version 11 is under development and will probably launch around the official release of El Capitan, supporting both and draining my wallet simultaneously.

Works fine for me Win10 on Parallels 10 on my 5k iMac in all modes, had split for W10 8Gb Ram and 4core, what I see in my case this is a balance in productivity for Mac OS and W10 simultaneously. Some latency increasing for SSDR in case TimeMachine proceed with backup on remote storage in the my network. Logbook always in Microsoft Cloud + eqsl and LotW with backup to the local flash drive.

I submitted a help desk request to Parallels and they sent me a URL to a windows site and downloaded an ISO that installed windows 10 on all my Mac computers. They both worked the first time upon boot and all my apps worked as well. SSDR, flex control etc. all worked right away. Works great!
Mac-Mini parallels 10 and win 10 all married and also on my 11" MBA.
I still have not upgraded to the latest version of SSDR due to my flexcontrol did not work in .16.
