    Thank you in advance for any guidance.

    Has anyone had any issues installing any Windows applications on the M1 Mac? I was successfully able to install some Windows apps without any issues (ex. Notepad++, Microsoft Sql Studio Manager), but cannot install the VPN software our company uses (Pulse Secure).

    Has anyone had any applications that the system would not let them install? Did you find a work around?

    I now have a really fast MacBook Air that I am not taking full advantage of due to not being able to install the VPN software :-(

    Hi, please check if Parallels Desktop has full access on your Mac.
    • Open System Preferences.
    • Click the Security & Privacy icon.
    • Select the Privacy tab > Accessibility.
    • Click the lock icon in the preference pane, then enter an administrator name and password.
    • Drag and drop Parallels Desktop app (Finder: /Applications/Parallels Desktop) in the Allow the apps below to control your computer box.
    • Select the Firewall tab. If Firewall is enabled follow the steps below
    • Click the Firewall Options button
    • Click the Add Application (+) button.
    • Select the app you want to allow incoming connection privileges for - Parallels Desktop.
    • Click Add > OK.

    Hallo,
    Ich hoffe das ich hier richtig bin.
    Age of Empires Definition startet auf meinem mac Book pro und Parallels 17 nicht. Habe der VM Windows 11 Pro 8 GB zugewiesen, alle Updates installiert und die o.g. Einstellungen vorgenommen. Zwar wird der Einstiegsbildschirm angezeigt, danach schwarzer Bildschirm und Absturz.

    Hoffe auf Hilfe und danke im Voraus.
    Grüße
    Jörg
