I'm a graphic design student, my work and projects depend on Adobe Illustrator. The program does not run on my new Windows 11 Surface Pro X
Adobe Illustrator for devices with ARM-64 Processors (i.e. Surface Pro X)
This device can’t run desktop Ai :(
There are some explanations and a workaround in comments below.

Just out of curiosity, why is it so hard to support this product on an ARM-64 device?
Amir, unfortunately, it seem like this device can’t run desktop Ai :(
As it says at
Surface Pro X include ARM CPU, not Intel CPU.
Surface Pro X can only emulate x86 applications.
Illustrator 2020 (and higher I believe) cannot be used because it becomes a 64-bit application.
There is a workaround, which basically requires running Ai on a different machine:
Alas, it feels like this is it. The tablet hardware is not there yet to hold big desktop Ai. IPAd have a special version of Ai though.
