I’m considering Microsoft’s latest 2-1 tablet the Surface Pro X. As an ARM powered device I understand it will only run 32bit version of applications. Does this present any real problem with Mind Manager?

Dear Ian,

to be honest: I don't know about nor have I ever recognized any difference. Basically I understand that the MindManager installs 32 or 64 bit depending on the Office version you are running.

Despite of that, you may consider of buying an older used Surface on Ebay or alike. I'm doing that meanwhile. "Good is good enough!" ;-)

Regards,
Detlef

Hey Detlef, 

Thanks for taking the time to comments, and like you, I'm a little unclear on the differences, so I'm keen to see if anyone has experience of running 32bit MindManager on an ARM device. 

As for older kit, I'm afraid I'm a tech junkie. My current SurfaceBook does a great job but I'm drawn to this new bit of Microsoft hardware like a moth to a flame!! :) 

Cheers

Ian.

Hi,
Windows ARM isn’t supported at the moment. While MindManager 32 bit will probably install without problem, the add-ins might not be working with Windows ARM.

Bonjour je suis en cours de tests de qualification de la surface x pro. J ai installé la derniere version 32 bits pour windows de mindmanager 2020 . Les fi actions de synchronisation avec les produits office outlook et excel ne fonctionnent pas. J ai constaté que les extensions pour office ont été installées dans le dossier x86 et non le dossier arm du lecteur c de windows . Est ce que cela signifie qu il n y a pas d extensions développées pour un environnement windows ARM ou bien n ai je pas sélectionné les bonnes options d installation ? Je n ai pas testé pour l instant les fonctions d import et d export cependant que pour les fonctions standards j ai ou constater un fonctionnement normal de mind manager.

Si quelqu un possède de l information a ce sujet je suis intéressé

Merci a tous

Above Comment Translated to English: 
Hello, I'm in the process of qualifying tests for the surface x pro. I installed the latest 32-bit version for windows of mindmanager 2020. The synchronization actions with office outlook and excel products do not work. I noticed that the extensions for office were installed in the x86 folder and not the arm folder of the Windows drive c. Does this mean that there are no extensions developed for a Windows ARM environment or have I not selected the correct installation options? I have not tested the import and export functions for the moment, however, only for the standard functions I have seen a normal functioning of mind manager.

If anyone has information on this subject I am interested

Thanks everyone

Bonjour, MindManager with Windows ARM n’est pas supporté. MindManager en soit devrait marcher mais ses extensions pourraient ne pas marcher. Actuellement seuls les systèmes 64bit et 32 bit sont officiellement supportés.
