The DesignBuilder layout may fail to display some surfaces when running Parallels on MAC machines.|
This issue is normally caused by changes in the latest OpenGL implementation in the latest update of Parallels Desktop App Store Edition, which is more feature-rich, but does introduce compatibility issues in some applications.

4. Run the virtual machine and run DesignBuilder software.
