Apple Macintosh Compatibility

Windward software solutions are currently designed for 32 bit Microsoft Windows operating systems.

Although not available for the Apple Macintosh operating systems. Windward solutions can be run on an Apple using:

  • A Windows emulated product such as http://www.iemulator.com OR Boot Camp
  • Using a Windows server operating system such as Windows 2012 Standard Server and enabling Remote Desktop Services. This will allow Mac's to connect through an RDS connection. This allows Windward solutions to run in a ession with printing redirected to Macintosh printers.

We have had clients purchase apple monitors and plug them into Windows workstations. This gives you the great looks of an apple with the business functionality of a Windows workstation.

Some point of sale equipment may not function or be configurable without connecting to a Windows based PC. We recommend a Windows based desktop if at all possible.
