    Hi everyone!

    As on daily basis I was using two machines:
    Workstation PC for high-end work;
    Macbook Pro 2014 for working on-site with bootcamp and Windows 10.

    Since my laptop was also used for creatingarchitectural models, there was a need to switch. Macbook Pro 14 /w M1 Max CPU it is then.
    I installed Parallels since bootcamp is no longer supported. I also installed needed apps BUT after connecting Sentinel Dongle with particular app's license on it, this app cannot find my USB thumb drive/w License. I tried reinstalling HASP driver but it gave me not success. Is there anyone who was able to make it work? [​IMG]

    Best regards,
    Karol

    There was a problem with USB devices in Parallels 17.1.0 which is supposedly fixed with 17.1.1.
    You can only install drivers for ARM. Intel drivers won't work.

    Hi Michael,
    So if I install ARM drivers will it work? Where can I find them?

    Best.

    That's the big problem. Most device manufacturers don't offer drivers for ARM.

    Ding ding. Windows ARM has almost no users, so funky hardware like USB licensing, serial adaptors, etc.. good luck.

    This may get better if more Windows ARM devices come out. but the current crop is garbage (not including Macbooks).

    Depending on the software, maybe you'd have better luck finding a crack for it to bypass the licensing. Otherwise, it's on the software vendor to update their stuff (good luck there.. since you're running an unlicensed copy of a Niche OS within virtualization).

    Okay, thank you for answers.
    Is there ANY way to install normal retail x64 version of Windows then? Or, is it possible to run x64 emulation on ARM version? I think that could help. What do you think @MichaelH63 and @MikeH27 ?

    No, you can't run an Intel OS as a virtual machine on ARM. Host and guest OS need to run on the same processor. Windows emulates x86 and x64 apps, but not drivers.

    So I guess it's all for nothing then.
    It's a shame because the only thing not working is the "reading-license-tool".

    Best,

    Yeah, I wish I know to whom I should speak about that issue. I think it is not Parallels or Mac fault, just lacking specific driver for the platform. It is a shame because you pay for the software that should work and someone who use cracked version is laughing in your face... :(

    Best,
    Karol

    ARGAS, on page you mentioned there is no reference to Windows on ARM. Only Intel versions mentioned there:
    "Windows: x86 and x64 versions of the following:"
    So it should work with Parallels Desktop 17 for Mac but on Intel Macs.

    Shame, to be honest. Hopefully they will see potential of the platform and will do something about it. Windows 11 is still fresh thing though... That force me to have two machines instead of one.

    Best,

    Hi, I've been struggling with the same issue since getting an M1 Mac, so I feel your pain.

    From memory, I believe I found that there were Sentinel Drivers available but they could not be installed on an Insider Preview build of Windows, which is what the M1 Macs require for Parallels to work. Haven't looked into it in a while, so there may be some updates but that was October/November time and I occasionally look out for posts like this just incase anyone else makes some progress.

    Hi,
    I already have Windows 11 Installed and I was checking on drivers daily: it changes nothing, unfortunately.
    I am still waiting for Thales to respond.
