Thank’s for your prompt response

That’s the only thing i wanted to know.

I will not waste any more time trying to install it to my Mac

I have another laptop under windows and will try it later.

Hi Denis

I run Polyboard on a macbook pro. I use parallels and It works very well. You need a mac with bootcamp installed. It is usually pre-installed. You then need to download and install parallels and then windows. I use windows 7.

You can very easily flit between both operating systems and share files between them.

 

Hope this helps

Hello Denis,

Sorry to say but our software is PC only.

StairDesigner, Polyboard, Opticut and OptiNest do not have a Mac version.

To run the software on a Mac we recommend you use a Windows emulator. Several of our customers use VMWare Fusion which you can try. We have also received good reports on Parallels run in Coherence Mode.

Another solution is to buy a second hand PC just for design software. You can find a Windows PC that will run the software perfectly very cheaply on eBay.

I have a second hand computer in my workshop that I bought for around £50, just for design and manufacturing in the workshop. This computer runs all my CAD programs and avoids his main computer collecting wood chips and dust in the workshop.
