Wondering If You Can Run SIMUL8 on Your Mac? Find Out the Answer

We look forward to answering all of our customers’ questions and when we get a frequently asked one, we make sure we answer it as soon as possible. Something we’ve been asked a lot lately is: Can I run SIMUL8 on my Mac? Well, I think we have the answer you’re looking for, and that’s a big fat YES. In fact, many of our employees, including our Founder, work on Macs every day.

Ok, so the next question you may have is: HOW do I run SIMUL8 on my Mac? Well, the easiest and most flexible option is virtualization software, like VM Fusion or Parallels.

This software will only set you back around $50 and let’s you run Mac OS X and Windows side by side. Plus, it’s so easy to switch between them – it’s as easy as switching between Mac applications.

Now, we’ve been doing this for a long time, so we know once we start answering questions more appear. I have a feeling you may have another question for us, like…Do we have plans to release a native OS X version of SIMUL8? Well that is the million dollar question and you’re just going to have to watch this space! Oh the suspense!
