Bypassing "This application cannot run on a Virtual Machine" error on Windows VMs

Vetri 1 Reputation point


I’m a student and my college has setup Azure VMs for those of us that need powerful computers to work on over the summer/quarantine. I use several programs on a physical computer that I just can’t on my Virtual Machine due to the developer disallowing it. Would there be anyway to bypass this?

    Hello @Vetri-6676,

    I suggest you to ask the question in the application's support forum. They should have some solution by registry tweak or something like that.

    due to the developer disallowing it

    May need to ask the developer about what environments are supported.
