Hey all -
I've got an MacBook Air M1 and I've been trying to run Amibroker (latest version) and Amiquote (latest version - 4.10) via Parallels. I've been running Amibroker via a cloud-based virtual PC for the past year and but it's a bit of a pain and I would really love to have the application running locally.
Getting the app up and running on Parallels has been mostly successful. I've gotten Amibroker up and running - working great.
But with Amiquote, I'm having an issue. I keep getting the warning that the app has exceed the maximum number of downloads (my source is Yahoo Finance US). This happens if I set it to 1, 2, or 3 downloads a time. At first I thought this was just an issue with Yahoo, but I then tried it from the virtual PC that I have out on the web - and found it worked fine. No issues. And I've double-checked the Amiquote settings to make sure they are identical across the two setups.
I'm curious if anyone has had a similar issue - there's nothing particularly special about my M1 setup - but I'm wondering if the Parallels emulation is doubling requests or something. I can't see it being a firewall issue as the app can clearly reach Yahoo Finance and is also able to make some downloads - it just reaches a point (rather quickly) where it starts telling me that I've exceeded the max downloads.
Anyway - in all likelihood I'm alone in this issue - and for the moment I'll go back to using my cloud-based virtual PC but figured it was worth throwing it out to the community to see anyone had any ideas.
