Windows Copilot+ (Qualcomm Snapdragon X Elite)

I see there is a Windows installer for ARM (64-bit). Has anyone tested this with the newly released Windows Copilot+ laptops running on Qualcomm Snapdragon X Elite?

Thank you.

I’m not sure. Testing this doesn’t seem straight forward unless one actually has the ARM-based hardware available.

If it was GNU/Linux I’d just download the ARM image of some distribution and run it via QEMU. Or I’d just run a single binary with QEMU in user mode.

When it comes to Windows the only official way to get the ISO is to join the insider program - which is already an annoying hurdle (please correct me if I am wrong). I guess running an ARM-binary on an x86 system with emulation (similar to using QEMU in user mode under Linux) is also not possible (again, correct me if I am wrong).


By the way, what installer do you mean? SyncthingWindowsSetup only supports x86_64 to my knowledge.

Thank you. I was looking at this page – under “Base Syncthing” - “Syncthing v1.27.9” - “Windows,” there’s “ARM (64-bit)”.

Looks like there are 24 Syncthing instances running on Windows ARM: https://data.syncthing.net

(Maybe there are more which don’t have statistics reporting enabled. Maybe they are using a different binary. That also doesn’t mean those instances actually work.)

I don’t see why it wouldn’t work. It’s not that new a platform and arm64 itself is very mainstream.
