I installed some of my Topaz plugins on a Windows 8 VM running under Parallels and decided to try to install Studio as well. The Studio install failed, first giving me an error saying that it could not install a link because the target did not exist and, when I told it to continue, it told me that the system did not meet the minimum specs required.
Now of course the system meets the technical specs. it is a 2 year old Mac Mini with an i7 chip, 16GB or RAM and 256GB of main ssd memory, but perhaps it is an issue with running under Parallels. I do not know.
I then tried to install Studio under a Windows 10 VM, but got exactly the same errors. Both VMs were up to date. Is there any way around this problem?
