    Posted by simonkaplan on August 8, 2021 at 12:00 am

    Hi there

    We need to run Kx Platform on a mac M1 under Parallels.

    Issues that arise in installation

    – ARM 64-bit isnt a defined architecture in the platform install scripts

    – q binary included in the distro is intel-only.  However the free downloadable version includes LINUX-ARM as a supported architecture.  Is there a ARM version of 64-bit q?  If so we could give this a go.

    Hi Simon,

    Thanks for raising this query on the Community portal, and apologies in the delayed response.

    Regarding the KX Platform installer, ARM 64-bit isn’t defined as it’s not a supported architecture at this time.

    We do have a ARM 64-bit version of kdb for Linux and macOS for v4.1t that can be downloaded from downloads.kx.com  – note this is a test version and is not intended, nor supported for production usage.

    Hope this helps.

    Kind regards,
