Hi I'm a mac user that has been running ArcGIS pro through parallels. However I recently upgraded to mac with the M1 chip. Parallels just released an ARM compatible version and it run windows ARM okay, put I can't get ArcGIS pro (arcmap 10.7 appears to work though). I would really prefer to work with Pro since I've finally gotten used to the layout are there any plans to make pro ARM compatible?
Sorry, but not useful. ESRI haven't updated is page. Until ESRI port ArcGIS Pro to ARM or windows finalize the x64 port emulator and release it to the public, Mac silicon won't be able to use it. Even then, if it's not port to ARM, and only emulation is available, I do not think the slow ArcGIS Pro will be very useful.
I think this will have to wait for WPF (Windows Presentation Foundation) to be ported to ARM by Microsoft. Afaik, ArcGIS Pro is build based on that, and unless it becomes available on ARM, won't be able to run on that.
There seems to be some promise though:
I had a problem running ArcGIS Pro 3.0 on Windows 11 (ARM64 version) on Parallels with M1 Pro macbook. The error in the error logs was:
The library hostfxr.dll was found, but loading it from C:\Program Files\...\hostfxr.dll failed
Turned out I had installed the .NET 6 Arm64 SDK (Pro dependancy), but Pro runs in X64 emulation mode on M1s - so I installed the X64 .NET SDK (i.e. Intel) as well and Pro 3.0 runs fine now.
Note that you don't have to install the full .NET 6 SDK unless you intend to do development using ESRI's Pro SDK's.
Pro 3.0 runs fine with just the .NET 6 Desktop Runtime:
I want to know about performance of arcgispro on m1 and issue related when emulating it on m1 . Could you share me some information related to this because I am planning to get MacBook Air to run arcgispro too .

THANK YOU - WORKED OUT JUST LIKE THAT FOR ME AS WELL!
