You can test installing and using VMWare Fusion Tech Preview which works on my M1 even when using 32-bit apps and Omnis Studio for Windows.

This version do not cost anything, I guess that you can use your earlier Windows 11 for ARM image. I guess that there will be problems installing system software components into this installation though.

Take care, all the best…
