Running OCAD 11 on an Intel-based Mac is possible in different ways. We tested it with a Virtual Machine (VirtualBox) and VMWare Fusion.

Virtual Machines

OCAD 11 can be run perfectly within a virtual machine.

VMWare Fusion

As in contrast to Virtual box VMWare Fusion is not free but more stable. We have installed Windows 8.1 with VMWare Fusion on Mac OS X 10.9. You can work with OCAD/Windows in the so called single Window Mode or complete transparent in the Unity mode. Screenshots from the OCAD:


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 OCAD 11 problems known.

BootCamp

OCAD 11 can also be run on a Mac with help of BootCamp.
