Manufacturers first introduced Windows on ARM-based PCs in 2017. The ability to run Windows on ARM-based systems (MS Surface, HP Spectre x2, Lenovo Miix 630, Mac M1, etc.) offers always-on connectivity, instant wake, and many of them come with cellular connectivity.

While Microsoft Windows is designed for x86/64 systems (from Intel and AMD), ARM-based PCs (including Mac M1) include emulation for x86, so that they are able to use many Windows-based applications. This emulation is both excellent and has some limitations.

At this time, the "Classic" Velixo reporting add-in for Windows Excel does not work on ARM-based systems.

Velixo recommends the use of Velixo NX for those clients using these systems.
