I have a new M1 (Apple chip) MacBook Air. It is running Win10 ARM insider preview under Parallels.

GS-911 wifi utility V2101.2 is installed and runs correctly under Win10. I can connect my GS911 to the MacBook and it is recognized by the GS0911 wifi utility. This seems to be working correctly.


The problem is with the GS-911 Downloader.exe.   When I try to install the downloader, I get the following error:

The Enigma Protector
Internal Protection Error, please contact the author!


I'm assuming this error is generated by the GS-911 Downloader, but I'm not sure. Any ideas how to get the downloader installed under my configuration?  I understand this is a non-standard way to run the GS-911 software, so any help is greatly appreciated.

You are certainly on the bleeding edge with the setup, lodge a support ticket with Hexcode, they know the MAC systems well

I am definitely bleeding edge. M1 with Parallels 18 and that came with Win 11 Pro. Also got the Enigma Protection. Has there been any developments? I travel with my Mac and was hoping to not carry another PC as well. My GS-911 is the old 3 pin one.

Hexcode support would be the best to provide you answers, they work with the MACs where I work with Linux & VMs, lodge a support ticket & they will provide better answers than me - https://www.hexcode.co.za/contact-us-1
