The answer is YES it works without any issue. I understand that most Windows-Software-companies fear to give any support, but there are 3 players on the market (Parallels, VMware Fusion, VirtualBox) with all support USB. I use a MacBook pro 2018 with USB-C, so an additional USB-C <-> USB bridge is attached to my Mac. I use VMware Fusion 11 and the only issue is, that i first connect HEX-NET to my Mac, THEN connect it to the car. I some cases the Mac does not ask if the device should be used with a Mac or my VM. In that case i go to the USB menu a let Hex-Net connect. I will appear as STMicroelectronics Hex-Net DoIP.can be vcds use on apple devices?
I would be surprised if VCDS works well on an ARM CPU. Even Microsoft's own Surface Pro X that runs Windows natively on an ARM processor has been problematical.When Apple switches Macs over to ARM processors I guess using them to run VCDS won't be just a simple process of installing a VM?
Just for info Fusion 12 has been out for a while, I did my Pro update on September 15.Apple has announced to disable some kernel extensions (kext). Thus the VM vendors have to use the Apple Hypervisior and Vmware and Parallels have announced to support ARM but it is not clear which OS. I think the latest Windows Versions will work, but do not expect XP to be run on ARM VMs...
So i assume at least Windows 7 and 10 will run in Paralels/Vmware with ARM and thus VCDS will also run on Mac with ARM and Intel CPU.
I prefer VMware, because of the fair license model. Paralell is a russian company and i you check the tcp traffic (i use little snitch) you know why i would not use parallels. Parallels is a yearly payment system, while VMware until Fusion 11 is a license and you pay the update. Fusion 12 is free for personal use, the professional version requires a license and for most "i just want to run windows and play around" scenarios the free Version should work.
Fusion 12 should be released end of this month and i will upgrade and post my test results. If i have some time i also will test fusion 12 player (free version) with vcds.
Yes this is correct, but i am from Germany and i get the german shop which offered the upgrade later. I will upgrade but we need to wait until 2021 for new version of fusion/parallels to check functionality with ARM. I assume either there will be a way to run windows 10 with arm and then VCDS and many other products will work or they fail get get window running at all then there will be no support for any windows software.Just for info Fusion 12 has been out for a while, I did my Pro update on September 15.
Since there are builds of Windows 10 specifically for ARM processors, I would think Windows could be made to work. The question is whether (and how well) software that isn't built for ARM processors will work.I assume either there will be a way to run windows 10 with arm and then VCDS and many other products will work or they fail get get window running at all then there will be no support for any windows software.
