WT library for Mac Book Pro?


Recommended Posts

I just purchased a Mac Book Pro and was wondering if anyone knew how to install the Watchtower Library since the library is Windows based. I couldn't find an Isilo app for the mac book.

I appreciate anyone's help. I'm not real computer savvy.

thank you

Yes Mary I understand your dilema (sp)! I purchased Isilo in the hopes that I coul1d somehow download the WT Library to my Blackberry Playbook. However, everything they said Isilo would do has not happened yet! Im kind of disappointed though because there are times that I need info from my library when I'm on a study.

I hope we can both get help with these issues! Color me "flustered" at this point.

I am using a MacBook with Mac OS X Lion. I wasn't able to get the Watchtower Library for Mac to work on my machine. However, I used a utility called CrossOver (it does cost about $40 USD) and installed Watchtower Library using that utility was able to get it working.

You can try this without actually buying the software. They offer a 30 day trial which is what I used at first. The folks that make CrossOver (CodeWeavers) actually support Watchtower Library 2010 under their software and have a published procedure for using it located here. Hope this helps!

Feel free to contact me if I can help you further. I love using my MacBook!! (2011 Quad Core i7 with 8GB).

They have nice step by step instructions on how make this work. "You can download the latest version by clicking Watchtower Library for Mac v2.0. Just drag the application to your Applications folder as indicated when you download the disk image (see below). After dropping the app into Applications you can safely eject and trash the downloaded dmg file. Then follow the onscreen video instructions."
