Are RSAT tools supported in Parallels Desktop on Mac computers with Apple silicon?

3 users found this article helpful

If you're using Parallels Desktop on your Apple silicon Mac and encountering some challenges with using the Remote Server Administration Tools (RSAT) in your Windows 11 virtual machine (VM), this article is here to help you navigate the challenges and offer a solid alternative solution.

The reason is that Microsoft doesn't officially support RSAT in Windows on Arm architecture. So, when you're trying to employ RSAT with your Windows virtual machines on Parallels Desktop, you might run into roadblocks. 


However, there is another great solution that might be of much help to you. Instead of RSAT, we recommend using Windows Admin Center to manage your Windows instances.
