Running OCAD on an Intel-based Mac is possible in different ways. We tested it with a Virtual Machine (VirtualBox).

Virtual Machines

OCAD can be run perfectly within a virtual machine.

Virtual Box

The advantage of VirtualBox is that it is free. Well, at least the software is free but you will need a Windows license in addition which can cause costs. To show how it looks like, we installed VirtualBox on a MacBook Pro with Mac OS X Mountain Lion and took some screenshots.

VirtualBox can also be used with Linux and Solaris systems as a host.

Other Virtual Machines

If you want more performance and a better handling with Windows Apps on a Mac, there are several solutions which cost up to 80€. Examples are Parallels Desktop or VMware Fusion.

Problems

At the moment, there are no problems known.

BootCamp

OCAD can also be run on a Mac with help of BootCamp.
