    I have been using LabView for many years on Intel-based Apple computers. In order to access the DAQ hardware drivers that are Windows-only, I've been using LabView running under Windows via Parallels. This has worked great.

    I just got a MacBook Pro with the Apple silicon M1 processor. I have installed Parallels and Windows but I cannot get LabView to install under Windows. Actually it appears to install but then the system crashes on restart, similar to what is reported by user "emcware" here. The M1 Macs have been out for more than a year and I'm amazed that LabView does not work yet.

    Does anyone have any experience or wisdom to share? Thanks!

    I'm not familiar with the software, but you mentioned using it for the drivers. That might be the problem. Windows on ARM emulates Intel software, but not Intel drivers.
