Running Links 2003 on an M1 iMac???

Post by Swandy »

I purchased one of Apple's M1 iMacs earlier this year. Also running Windows 11 for ARM under Parallels. But I cannot seem to get Links 2003 (have the original disk versions' files burned to a CDR and also purchased the download version from the Links Country Club website (in case that would be easier to install) but neither works. I either get various errors (usually a missing DLL file) or the game will "start", run in a small windows and anytime I try to change the resolution it fails and quits.
Now - granted I am running a M1 iMac which is Apple's new Apple Silicone which is obviously based on an ARM processor (hence the Windows 11 ARM version being necessary) which might be causing issues (DUH).
Anyone successful at getting Links 2003 to run? And HOW did you do it?
Thanks.
