    I already had a windows 10 license, so no, it would be interesting to find out if you can.

    Sign-in with MS account seems broken. Looks like it's a 32-bit app.

    For windows? If you already has licensed Windows and you registered into insider program, you are licensed to use insider builds as long as you stay into insider program. You can even later switch to the pre-release channel and receive only stable builds. The only disadvantage that you cannot switch off extended diagnostics while you are insider.

    It's interesting, Task Manager shows that Windows Store is build for x86 (Intel 32bit) architecture

    Different than having an activated license for the VM vs signing up from another licensed machine.

    Latest build of parallels and latest build of windows 10 seem so close to being perfect
    most of the modern apps including the windows store are now installed using the correct bits

    Has anyone managed to change the sign in options for the virtual machine to allow Windows Hello Face to use the MacBook camera?
    Current I receive a message saying "We couldn't find a camera compatible with Windows Hello Face". The camera does work with windows, as I can use the Camera App fine. Any suggestions ?

    Windows Hello needs an IR camera, the Macbooks don't have one.

    Activation back-end appears to be the same as x86 Windows 10. So you "should" be able to use any "Pro" key. FWIW, I activated mine using an old Windows 7 Pro key and it worked.. but YMMV.

    Newbie here... I'm reading posts and getting mixed answers as to whether the required Key for activation is a Windows or a Parallels key? I'm a Windows Insider member and as such I get to test their beta products, one of them being the ARM based flavour of Windows. These beta versions have no activation key, as far as I know, so I'm baffled by the Parallels prompt upon a successful installation.
    I seem to remember that prior to downloading the Parallels software I was shown a Key, and I believe I used it in order for the installation to begin. I'm sorry but my attention span is very short and so seems to be memory.
    Today, after finding the appropriate VXHD Windows file, I get asked for what seems to be a Parallels key to 'activate' the software. Again, this being a 'beta' version given to me for trying it out and reporting on bugs, etc, should not have an activation key. I've already contacted Parallels with feedback on my experience.
    What is the solution to my problem? a Windows or a Parallels key?

    You need the free key given to you by Parallels. This one is different from the regular Parallels keys that you can buy.
    You don't necessarily need a Windows key if you don't mind Windows not being activated.

    i downloaded it last night the windows arms build 21337. Was amazed how fast it installed onto the Macbook Air m1 8GB. It hasn't asked me for anything as it was a developer's edition. I only use it to run some of my work software, which is running faster than in my SB3 i7 with 16GB of RAM

    NOTE: Build 21313 will not be offered to ARM64 devices due to an app compatibility issue. We hope to flight to ARM64 devices with the next flight once the issue is fixed.

    Hi,
    I can install Windows 10 on ARM Insider Preview build 21286 on MacBook Air M1 thank to Parallels Desktop 16 for M1 Mac Technical Preview 2 in last week and still work well today.
    But I would like to know how to extend period of Parallels Desktop 16 for M1 Mac Technical Preview 2
    . The default period is only 14 days. That's not enough.
    The user would like to have longer activation period , we have purchased Parallels Desktop 16 for Mac Standard edition license.
    Please advise how to extend M1 Mac Technical Preview 2 activation period? Will it stop using after activation period?
    Many thanks for your advice.

    Two questions:
    1. My Windows10 build is 21286. I have seen mentions to newer builds in this blog, but the download site still offers build 21286. How does one get newer builds, or will MS push them down to Insider users?
    2. When this Win10 first started, it did not connect to local WiFi network. The Win repair tools fixed this for a while, but then the connection pooped out again, and now the repair tools can't fix it. Any advice on this problem?

    My license was scheduled to expire last week and has been extended another three months automatically. There's no need to worry about your license for now. It should work as long as Parallels remains in the Technical Preview phase. After that you will probably need a paid license.

    You need to switch to the Dev Channel in the Insider settings. Then just run Windows Update for the latest build.
