ArcGIS Pro 3.0 Disable Advanced Vector Extensions for Geoprocessing Tools

Hi all, I recently updated to ArcGIS Pro 3.0, got "ERROR 110472: Invalid hardware architecture was detected" while using the Geographically Weighted Regression (GWR) Spatial Statistics Tool and will stop the tool. Image attached along with the post.

I did some research, find that the 3.0 version of ArcGIS Pro requires processors (CPU) that supports Advanced Vector Extensions (AVX) for several geoprocessing tools like GWR. It improves the runtime of the tools.

I am using an Apple M1 Max chip MacBook Pro and running ArcGIS Pro on an ARM-Based Windows 11 Education version of 10.0.22 with Parallels Desktop version 18.0.0. I think that M1 chips does not support AVX as they require x86 architecture.

Hence I am wondering if we can disable the option of using AVX while running geoprocessing tools like GWR so I can get the results?

No information on disabling, but there is a list to avoid
