I have a client running MYOB under Windows 11 on an M1 iMac - because Account 
Edge is STILL just 32bit software, and therefore simply can’t run on the new 

I got her going with Parallels Desktop, but is necessary to install the 
developer edition of Windows 11 in order to work on the M1 chip, so I expect it 
would be the same for the M2. Been working well for over 12 months though...
