Available for Mac

Our products are compatible with Mac hardware, however our product lines are designed to run under the Windows operating systems. Due to the limited market, there has not been enough of a new customer base that use only Mac's to justify the research and development of new products directly compatible with the Mac operating system.

The most popular route for Mac owners is to install the free Apple's Boot Camp software to allow the Mac computer to boot either in the normal Mac operating system mode or to a partition running Windows. See Apple's Website for more information. When running the Windows partition, our software can be installed and operated.

The other popular alternative is to use a virtualization software program on the Mac. With the virtualization software program, you can create a Windows "computer" that Windows based programs can be installed and operated, such as ours. The industry calls these virtual computers "guests" and calls the actual computer, which would be your Mac, the "host". To run your Mac with your other programs, you run them as you always have. To run a Windows based program, such as ours, the Virtualization program is started, then the Windows virtualized "computer".  This will start up Windows from within your Mac computer.  From there, you can install and use Windows based software, such as BLS or BTM without investing in the extra hardware.

There are currently three major products available to create virtualized machines on a Mac.

 

Wikipedia has some additional information on what a Virtual Machine is at http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Virtual_machine

We have customers that have used the above solutions and internally have also tested the above solutions with our products and have found VMware's Fusion 8 or Apple Boot Camp to provide the best experience running Windows based products on Apple hardware.
