Igor on ARM M1/2 in Windows virtualization?
Thu, 08/11/2022 - 02:07 pm
before I start with what looks like crazy afternoon, may be someone tried already... If yes, can you comment, please?
Supposedly, we can run Parallels on Mac M1/M2 devices to virtualize ARM for Windows; Windows 11 ARM is supposedly free as some kind of technical preview or insider preview or something; and Windows 11 ARM supposedly CAN run SOME Windows x86 applications in emulation (kind of Rosetta 2 for Windows?).
So this will run virtual Windows in Mac, in which will emulate x86 processor for x86 Windows applications... Sounds crazy. But web pages I found talk about usable gaming in this setup, which seems bonkers.
Anyone tried to run Igor Pro in this crazy setup? I just wonder if it works and how well. If no one tried yet, I may try it sometimes on my little test mac mini M1, 8GB RAM, 256GM SSD... What can go wrong?
