Parallels has Tools, just like VMware. Try reinstalling the Parallels Tools to see if this helps.  I have Tools properly installed in VMware and that allows copy and paste, so that is why I suggest this.

@MARSPATH  - Thanks for the update and I am glad you have it fixed. Yes, you need the Tools installed, but reinstall can help if already installed.
