    Is Windows ARM64 likely to be affected by the new Windows PrintNightmare vulnerability? Should we, could we, be getting an update to address it?

    The latest Windows 11 build in the Dev Channel (22000.65] fixes the vulnerability.

    I have now Windows 11 Insider Preview 10.0.22000.51 installed. However, when I look at the Preview options, I am told I don't have sufficient resources for Win11 - see attached screenshot. Can anyone tell me how I determine the required resources under Parallels for Win11? Should I just ignore this message, as Win11 is installed & running?

    Yes, you can ignore it for now. Hopefully Parallels will get the required features (TPM 2.0, DirectX12) ready in time for the official release of Windows 11.

    How did you get W11 to install? I tried it, and the installer told me that I don't have TPM 2.0, so the install couldn't proceed. So I'm stuck on W10ARM, which is working fine but of course I don't have the PrintNightmare fix.

    Will we need a new licence code for W11, or will the W10 one continue to work?

    I'm in the Dev Channel and ran Windows Update. There's a warning about the minimum requirements for Windows 11, but it installed just like the Windows 10 updates before.

    You don't need a new license code.

    I'm in the Dev channel too, but can't get the update to download - it trips up on the TPM 2.0 thing.
    I'm wondering whether the fact that my W10 ARM isn't activated is why I can't get the update. I tried using my W10 licence key to activate, and was told it won't work. Possibly that's because it's a W10 Home key, and the version of W10 ARM I have is W10 Pro (build 21354.1)?
    How can I best get round this?

    That is weird. Microsoft explicitly says that TPM isn't enforced yet. No idea why you are getting the error message. Maybe you're right and the activation is the problem, but that would be an odd choice.
    And yes, you can't use a Home key to activate. Unfortunately there is no Home build you can download.

    I obtained a licence key for W10 Pro and activated successfully, but it hasn't helped. Not that the licence is wasted, since I will eventually need it anyway.

    But, some progress in understanding, at least.

    It appears that only Insiders who have been getting updates before 24th June were allowed to get W11 updates without TPM. Since I came onboard just after that, I don't qualify.

    But now I am stuck some kind of loop. I am in the Dev channel, but the insider program was supposed to move me back to the W10 Preview channel (since my hardware doesn't qualify), and I need to be there to continue to get updates on W10 (e.g. 21H2 build 21390) - but the program didn't make that move. And my settings doesn't give me any way to move out of the Dev channel manually, so I am continuing to be offered un-installable W11 builds and no W10 builds. I suspect that I will have to withdraw entirely from the Insider program and start again, but I am concerned that might crash my whole Parallels Windows VM. And I can't find out whether Microsoft will let me back in again if I once opt out.
    Any ideas on how I can break this loop?

    Unfortunately moving to the Release Preview Channel won't help you. The version that was just released there probably won't work on M1.
    Just stay in the Dev Channel and update to Build 21390 either via the Parallels method or via Alexey's method. The problem with this is, that you will be stuck with a build that doesn't have a fix for the PrintNightmare vulnerability until Parallels gets its software ready for Win 11.

    Thanks for that perspective, and the links to get the upgrade to 21390. I followed the Parallels method, and the upgrade was successful. I'm not sure if my Insider registration is still linked to my Microsoft account or not, but as things are working OK I'm not disposed to worry about it.
    As you say, I will wait for Parallels to upgrade sufficiently for me to get W11.
    I realised that I wasn't going to get the PrintNightmare fix once I saw I couldn't get W11, so I'm resigned to it. I assume that there isn't a straightforward workaround? I'll just only run Windows when I have to, and it isn't very often.

    There is one. You won't be able to print from Windows, though.

    Thanks for all the help. I'll have to think about the printing.

    Installation of Windows 10 ARM was successful on iMac 24". Now I am trying to install FileMaker Pro 19 on that VM. When I run the installer .exe I see the following dialog: Screen Shot 2021-08-03 at 11.01.30 PM.png

    Clicking Next does nothing. Is this because MS has not released versions of the Visual Studios and Windows Runtime for ARM yet?

    I have problems while installation of W10 on macbook air m1. You just download and double-click on Windows10_InsiderPreview_Client_ARM64_en-us_21354.VHDX file and Parallels 17 is started? What settings do you setup for this?

    Joel, I'm running into the same issue with a CAD designer that uses Sentinel. Did you ever find a fix for this? Thanks!

    Hi Joel,

    I am facing similar issue with Sentinel. Did you find any solution on this?

    Hello,

    I am using Parallels 17 with Windows 11 Dev on Apple M1.

    Here are a couple of questions I was wondering about, in case anybody wants to comment, greatly appreciated.

    1. In official parallels documents, it is mentioned that it is not recommended to move/clone a VM that uses vTPM. Why? Simply because it requires additional steps to handle, or is there another reason?
    2. I often backup a full vTPM-VM file to an external harddrive. Let's assume my Mac SSD crashes and I want to use the copied VM from the external drive on a new MacBook. Is it correct that by following the steps described under https://kb.parallels.com/en/122702 , I will have all the means to be able to run the vTPM on the New Mac (assuming it's the same type of MacBook)?
    3. I am currently on Dev Channel. At the moment, Dev and Beta Channel are identical builds and it is possible to move to Beta. However, Beta has additional requirements: https://blogs.windows.com/windows-i...ing-for-insider-preview-builds-of-windows-11/ (I recommend you read the table!! ) Has anybody switched to Beta Channel, and did it work? What about CPU type requirements for Beta? Is it correct that one can always switch back to Dev channel from the Beta channel?
    4. Currently I am having issues (in WIndows full screen, game mode) switching to windows because I simply see the background of the sign in screen with no possibility to interact, I have to go to Parallels menu and to press ctrl alt del to get into windows.

    Does anyone know what happened or where I can download (legit links) Windows 10 ARM? All the links referenced only go to Windows 11 ARM now with no reference to Windows 10 ARM on the page. I am and have been Insider previously so it's got nothing to do with not having access. I was able to download Windows 11 ARM but I want Windows 10. Help appreciated. Just checking our Parallels 17 for specific reason to run Windows TEN on my M1. Thanks.

    So do you need to buy a license to use the ARM Version of Windows? Also if I try to down load a game the Microsoft store it seems to just freeze and not allow the download. if this because the license isnt recognized?
