    Hello! I keep encountering an error with this install, and can't seem to find a way around it. It just keeps giving me an "Oops... Unable to install SQL Server (setup.exe)." I've seen a number of posts, but nothing with a clear answer. Is this just not compatible with the M2 framework? If so, shouldn't Parallels find a workaround? Any bit of help would be very much appreciated. Thanks in advance!

    The error arises from the possibility that your M2 Mac's virtual Windows 11 Pro isn't entirely compatible with the SQL Server installation. To fix this, make sure your virtual environment satisfies SQL Server's system requirements. You may also want to consult an expert in virtualization or official SQL Server support for advice.
