KHS questions, Anyone run this software on a Mac?

Recommended Posts

I'm the past when I had a Mac, I used a program called parallels, so I could run windows on my Mac side by side with MacOS.

You would need to purchase a copy of parallels along with a copy of Windows 10.

Another less expensive way way is to use what's called boot camp. With that, you would have to reboot your computer when you want to run Windows. Boot camp is a feature built-in to MacOS. In order to use that, you would still have to acquire a copy of Windows 10.

By doing either of these options you would also be able to run JW library, which could be helpful.

I kinda doubt you can get it to run without a virtual machine like Virtual Box. You can technically use Windows 10 without a license or online account signed in and it will work, but certain personalization features are disabled.

It might be runnable via Wine, but that's a long shot. https://appdb.winehq.org/objectManager.php?sClass=application&iId=16778 https://forum.winehq.org/viewtopic.php?t=27129

You would generally be better off buying a used business desktop/laptop/cheap mini PC/laptop/etc rather than buying a license for dual booting Windows unless it's something you really need to do on that specific laptop frequently. https://www.amazon.com/dp/B084WRRV51/ https://www.amazon.com/dp/B074VF7XJX/ If you live in an area with a good used market you can find Windows business desktops for less than $50.

I tried with Wine and it didn't work.

Not a good wine pairing? 🍷😁
