    Hi,
    I'm trying to install Goole Play Games on my Windows VM but the install errors out.
    I get the install file from here: https://play.google.com/googleplaygames
    Anyone figured out how to install it and get it to work?

    Thanks for taking the time to reply JourneyT. The Google Play Games I'm talking about is in fact a Windows Installer. You can learn more here: https://play.google.com/googleplaygames At this point, it still doesn't install on Windows ARM in my Parallels environment.

    I bet it's because the game was written for Windows on Intel rather than Windows on ARM. I've tried sampling a few games, though, and while there is an Install button to try (I won't be trying!), there is zero information on what platform the software is expected to run on. Which is problematic.

    Any way of contacting Google to verify a product that's on their Google Play Games Store?

    Following up on my response, I have noticed this as a general blurb on their Store:

    Minimum requirements
    • OS: Windows 10 (v2004)
    • Storage: Solid State Drive (SSD) with 10 GB of available storage space
    • Graphics: IntelⓇ UHD Graphics 630 GPU or comparable
    • Processor: 4 CPU physical cores (some games require an Intel CPU)
    • Memory: 8 GB of RAM
    • Windows admin account
    • Hardware virtualisation must be turned on
    <https://play.google.com/googleplaygames#section-system-requirements>

    That doesn't sound very reassuring, especially when these requirements are indicative of every title on the Store.

    I get the error code "NU80040811" from the screenshot attached. Also trying to run from parallels. If anyone finds a solution, do shout out. Page says once beta is done it will be available for more computers. We shall see.
