TEARcloud's Engager does not run directly on Mac - however, we are working on a future release that will. In the meantime, there are a few workarounds. Here are the 3 popular ones:   1. Remote Desktop Control (RDC) My personal favorite. RDC allow’s you to control another computer from your computer. In our case let’s focus on a Virtual Private Server (VPS) and a Dedicated Server (DS). Basically, this is a computer that is hosted by a 3rd party for you in their server center and you can access it remotely. They beautiful thing here is that is run’s 24/7 allowing you to have your windows app running around the clock. This means you don’t have to worry about your campaigns stopping when you turn off your computer. Places I have had great quality VPS and DS from are and 2. Virtual Applications (VA’s) These are 3rd party applications you can install on your Mac. Once installed generally they open a window on your Mac where you can run the desired window app you need. This may require Windows license to work. Some examples of these VA’s include:ParallelsVMware FusionVirtualBox Remember, each of these allows you to useWindows (or other operating systems) as if it were just another OS X application. 3. Apples Built-in Boot Camp A general overview... Boot Camp allows you to install Windows alongside OS X on your Mac. It’s important to remember that only 1 operating system can be running at a time. This means, unlike the VA’s solution you are required to restart your Mac to switch between OS X and Windows. If you just want to run a Windows desktop application alongside your Mac applications, a virtual machine will probably be ideal.
