Some of the most common questions we receive involve our genealogy software running on Mac
OSX computers. We've put together a list of the most common questions and
Yes - but with help. In fact, we have many happy Mac users of our family tree software. However,
all of our software is currently designed to run on Windows operating systems. That's
where "the help" comes in.
All Macs built since 2006 use the same microprocessors as Windows PCs. This means
that you can install the Windows operating system on your Mac and run any Windows
software. There are also other non-Windows options available.
There are three products available that allow you to install Windows on your Mac:
Apple Boot Camp, Parallels Desktop, and VMWare Fusion.
All three install the full Windows operating system and allow you to run any Windows
application on your Mac. You get the best of both worlds! All three also require
that you have a fully-licensed copy of Windows to install.
No problem. There are two products available which allow some Windows software (including
all of ours) to run on a Mac without actually having Windows: Wine, and CrossOver
It is certainly our intention. We have many Mac users who would love this and we
love to make our users happy. We're just waiting for the necessary tools and technology
to become available (which will hopefully be in the near-future).
Note: All of our software has been tested and confirmed to work on all of these
products. However, we can only offer technical assistance with our own software
and not with other products or operating systems.
