    I use a Mac and Quicken for Mac.
    Because I manage several rental properties, I am interested in running Windows, and Windows Quicken Home and Business on my Mac via something like Parallel. Any suggestions or warnings?
    I assume that I will be able to transfer all my data accordingly? Thoughts? more thing, are there any issues with doing this on a new Mac with the new M1 processor?

    To answer your 2nd question first, no, you can't run Parallels on an M1 Mac, at least not yet. Parallels relies on the the Intel chip, so it's gonna be a major development effort for them to make Windows run on M1. You can subscribe to updates and get in on the Preview on this here:

    Also, I'm sorry to say that conversion of data files from QMac to QWin is not in a good state. I don't know all the details, but if you search here on the community you will find lots of info.
