Upgrading Parallels 9 to 10

I have a customer asking me to quote a price on upgrading his iMac's Parallels 9 to 10. Anyone out there have any idea how long it takes? I assume I can do this without reinstalling Windows on top of it?

    In past updates it took about 15 minutes, with "installing parallels tools" taking the bulk of that and no, you don't have to reinstall windows.

    BTW I just got an offer for that upgrade. It's $49.99.

    I just installed Parallels 10 on my MAC and I was wrong about the time. It took 30 minutes.
