    FINALLY!
    I was able to do a standard install of SW Premium 2022 SP2 into Windows 11 ARM, running under Parallels 17.1.2 Things worked pretty well except:

    Turn off file sharing with the mac, otherwise you won't be ale to save files from Solidworks (with sharing on, the pathname starts with \\mac\..." rather than"C:\...") Solidworks refuses to save unless it sees a full path back to the physical device. Open "windows 11" configuration screen from Parallels. Select "options", "sharing", "configure". Uncheck the 6 folders.

    I also had trouble with the center mouse button not enabling rotation. Under the configuration for windows 11, select "hardware", "mouse and keyboard". set mouse and keyboard to "don't optimize for games". That seemed to do it.

    Rendering seems slow with 6 cpus, but have not jumped into that yet...
