    I'm trying to install a macOS VM on my M1 MacBook. I notice when I am watching tutorials online that they have a little arrow on the bottom right to select macOS as an option. I do not have that, and when I select the Big Sur app it complains that it's an x86 installer. Is there something I'm doing wrong? How do I get macOS installed as a VM?

    Same question! All the docs online suggest this is possible, but on M1 none of the docs appear to apply, yet none of the docs mention an issue about M1. What's the deal?

    I don't know about PD17 with Big Sur on M1 host, what works for me are:
    - PD17 with Big Sur on Intel
    - PD 17 with Monterey beta on M1 (but very limited functionality)

    I have a very basic question if someone can help. I am trying to open up my PD10, that I only use occassionally, on my MacBook Pro that is running BigSur. It gives me the error message upload_2021-9-24_9-12-39.png
    I have the my Windows 7.pvm in an accessible file which seemed to be the problem in the past.
    Is upgrading to PD17 the only option or is there a way to continue to use PD10 with BigSur?
