Failed to power on....

Hi just bought a new MacBook Air M1 and transferred everything from my old computer to my new one. How do I get Windows up and running on my new computer? When I try to open Windows, I get an error message--see attached screenshot. I am running VMWare Fusion 12.1.1.

Fusion cannot power on any VM when you have an M1 processor.

There will be a future version which will be able to run VMs with guest OSes which work on ARM but not x86.
