RNDIS/Ethernet Gadget driver on Windows ARM64

I have the following configuration :

A Raspberry Pi Zero W (RNDIS/Ethernet Gadget)
Computer with Windows Client ARM64 Insider Preview - Build 22483 (Windows 11, ARM64)

When I connect the Raspberry Pi to my computer with Windows ARM64 installed it detects it as a USB device and not as the Ethernet Gadget

When i try to manually choose the driver nothing happens

I have tried it on a normal Windows 11/10 Pro machine and it sees it like a RNDIS/Ethernet Gadget device

so..

Do RNDIS driver exists for Windows ARM?
Did someone already tried what i'm are trying to doand got it to work ?
Is there a way to install the drivers i have for AMD64 and x86 on the ARM64 version?

Thanks,
Emil

Hello

Unfortunately RNDIS/Ethernet Gadget is not a compatible hardware for Windows IoT (ARM), there for the driver is not available. You can check the hardware type compatibility list here: https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/windows/iot-core/learn-about-hardware/hardwarecompatlist

the possibility of using a AMD64 Driver on a ARM64 is discarded due to the architecture differences. You can check the feature for x86 emulation, but personally I have never played around so I can't guarantee any result: https://blogs.windows.com/windows-insider/2020/12/10/introducing-x64-emulation-in-preview-for-windows-10-on-arm-pcs-to-the-windows-insider-program/
