Greetings Quantrix Forum Community:
Some visitors to Quantrix.com have expressed an interest on running Quantrix Modeler in an OS X environment.
I would like to share with you that one of our pre-release purchasers has successfully installed Quantrix on Mac hardware using a product called Virtual PC for Mac. Virtual PC allows you to run applications designed for the Microsoft Windows Platform on your Mac computer. More information can be found at the Apple web site:
We are still gauging market interest in porting Quantrix to the OSX platform. However, this is a possible solution for those of you on OS X to start using Quantrix now.
Please don’t hesitate to contact us if you have further questions regarding Quantrix Modeler.
We have a mixed OS X, Windows environment. While using OS X I have installed a trial version of Quantrix Modeler on OS X using the VPC emulation.
It is working quite well (PowerBook G4 with 1 GHz and 1 GByte RAM). It could be faster but because you are requesting a P IV with 1.5 GHz minimum I didn’t expect to much.
I realized a lot of you code is based on Java. Therefore I presume it is not to difficult to port it to OS X. In terms of market we would be very interested to have versions for both environments (for convenience and speed).
Quantrix Modeler is a great product (as Improv has been a long time ago) and we looking forward to new releases.
