Good morning! I have a student with issue installing Parallels (then Windows) on the Mac .. here are the screen captures .. normally I dont have an issue but stumped with this error? Any ideas? Thank you!!!
That to me is not an error message but a warning that running the virtual machine will slow the Mac down. That's true. What happens when you click "Start Anyway"?
I'd point you to Parallels support: Support & Installation | Parallels Desktop for Mac and this post about how to install Windows on Parallels.
Also, I want to be sure you know about this Esri post on running ArcGIS Pro on Mac.
Hi Warren, I agree with Adena, it's not an error but an "info message." Parallels+Windows consumes some of the Mac's horsepower, which people may not grasp fully. I have a 16gb MacBookPro (500gbSSD), which, when running Parallels, I divide into 8gb for Mac and 8gb for Parallels+Windows. This is still pretty peppy for both, but machines with less RAM will show more noticeable sluggishness. It's a tradeoff being "dual platform." - Charlie
Thank you! The student found some direction on YouTube but when I checked
now, she allotted on 1.5 Gb ram on Windows side .. Sent her back to change
ram. Thanks for help!
