    How do you disable searchindexer.exe?

    This is from Windows 10 that does not have searchIndexer but it will be something like this. Just disable it and you should be fine after.

    I have the same problem here (MacBook Pro M1 - Parallels 17.1). Windows 11 ARM stopped working...

    This issue has to be fixed by Microsoft or Parallels?

    Since I wrote the last time, I now have released Windows 11 running under Parallels 17.1. I STILL can't get Zemax OpticStudio (nor Zemax License Manager) to run. I have been in contact with both Zemax and Parallels. Zemax say that their SW runs on Windows 11 PC's, but they haven't tested it on M1 Macs. They suggested that I repair MS Visual C redistributables. I did that - still same problem. I had an on-line session with Parallel's Support Engineer, and he could not figure out why the Zemax SW does not run. Nobody seems to take a full responsibility of fixing this issue. I am continuing my saga with both Zemax and Parallels, and will report here if anything positive comes up. Again - the basic issue is that a SW that runs on Windows 11 PCs does not run on the MAC M1/Parallels/Windows11 combination.

    Continuing my post from November 5: Unfortunately I have nothing positive to report. It seems that Windows 11 for ARM and Windows for PC are different in some sense, which prevents my specific SW (OpticStudio by Zemax) from running on Win11/ARM. The SW supplier (Zemax) is not going to develop a version for Win11/ARM, so I am stuck (together with other Mac/ARM users who would like to use this SW). My only hope is that Microsoft will (somehow) merge the two Win11's (ARM and PC) so that any PC SW can run under Win11/ARM.
