I am going to update to OS X Mountain Lion, what should I do to prepare Parallels Desktop 7 before?

1) Launch Parallels Desktop 7

2) Go to the Parallels Desktop menu and click “Check for updates”

3) This will download the latest build (Parallels Desktop 7.0.15104.778994, released on July 10, 2012) for you.

I've already upgraded to OS X Mountain Lion, and Parallels Desktop 7 does not start after upgrading to Mountain Lion:

If this alert appears once you've updated to OS X Mountain Lion, Parallels Desktop is not updated to the latest build 7.0.15104
