    I've been meaning to have a go using THERM for some years - the main obstacle being that I'm entirely Mac based and don't have easy access to a Windows machine.

    Just wondering if anyone out there might have had success running it on a mac via one or other Virtual Machine type solutions?

    I've recently moved to an M1 mac running Big Sur - is it worth me attempting it and if so what would be my best bet?

    Thanks!

    Does THERM run on the Windows 10 ARM preview?

    VMWare Fusion has a free version for personal use but it doesn’t support virtualisation of Windows x86 nor ARM: https://my.vmware.com/web/vmware/evalcenter?p=fusion-player-personal

    So you’ll need to go with Parallels 16.5 or later:
    https://www.parallels.com/uk/products/desktop/

    And you’ll need Windows 10 ARM Preview
    https://www.microsoft.com/en-us/software-download/windowsinsiderpreviewARM64

    And THERM for Windows ARM

    Thank you for this; very helpful.

    I'm not sure how to find the answer to "does THERM run on Windows 10 ARM preview".

    This is all I can find on the website:

    https://windows.lbl.gov/tools/knowledge-base/articles/minimum-computer-requirements-0

    However, it looks like they have a users forum so maybe I should just ask my question there.

    Bootcamp doesn't work on the newer M1 macs like mine unfortunately.

    Well, it looks like running THERM on my mac is likely to be a bit of a faff.

    In the meantime I have come across this:

    https://energy.concord.org/energy2d/index.html

    Has anyone used this? I need to fiddle with it a bit to see if it's actually useful for the kind of thing I'd want to do.

    This is a screenshot from one of their already-built models.

    I haven't seen it before. It looks interesting but their certificate is expired and when I try to run it in a sandbox it fails.

    net.sourceforge.jnlp.LaunchException: Fatal: Launch Error: Could not launch JNLP file.

    Is that trying to run it within a browser?

    For me, it won't run in a browser, but I managed to install the desktop application on my mac quite easily.

    I've found something else that will run on a mac:

    https://www.dartwin.it/

    Unfortunately the licences run to 100s or 1000s of Euros...

    Probably cheaper to buy a windows laptop and run THERM...
