    Hi @yaswanthgella

    As you have rightly mentioned, the Ansys software is only available for Windows and not for Mac OS. If you want to run Ansys on your MacBook, then you might have to use a windows emulator or you may need to install Windows 11 using BootCamp.

    To add, we don't technically support Win11 at present so Win10 might be a better choice. Apparently we (Ansys) are moving all machines over later this year: if we disappear at that point it'll be because IT forgot to test our software....

    Technically, M1 chip macbook doesn’t support bootcamp. Coming to windows emulator thing: Does Apple officially recommends that?

    No idea what Apple recommend: I use Win10 & Linux within Ansys and Win10 & Android at home. Ansys doesn't have a iOS build so you either need an emulator which we don't support but that we've seen work OR a computer with a supported operating system (Win10 for Student).
