Hi, I am back on Mac after 15 years on PC, and of course, it would be sweet to run Coffecup. I know the guys are considering it, but thinking alone has never brought the bread home. So - please - with sugar on?

I've heard others mention that they can run another program that allows them to use non mac programs on their macs and thus use the CC programs.

Hopefully a Mac user will see this and let you in on the "secret" :)
I know you believe you understand what you think I said...but I am not sure you realize that what you heard is not exactly what I meant.

One minor correction that is not running a windows application on a mac, that is called a virtual desktop you are running a copy of windows on the same machine in a virtual environment and it will consume more memory than if you had a native Mac program. This is a good idea however for the current users that don't want to re-invest on licenses simply migrate your physical machine to the virtual environment and you are running just like you where on your old pc. Also one note to add I would pick Parallels 5 over VMware Fusion 3 the graphics performance is far better.

The reps at apple like Parallels 5. i would recomend the new 27 inch imac. We will be switching our design firm and engineering firm over to them this year. the new motherboard sports 8 processors and huge amounts of ram. You really won't see much of a difference in performance and running it in a fly up window is awsome. I'd suggest getting your apple version ready. based on the development support from apple I wouldn't be supprised to see apple cup sometime soon. menu and button driven in true apple style wow. Now if you guys did it then supper wow.

I just read this after posting my request in another post. I have been a loyal CC customer for years. I recently had to switch to MAC (which I LOVE). Now all my CC software is useless. I would love CC to be MAC compatible. Please. I would pay for it...again (or I would be even happier if I had a nice discount seeing as I've been a customer for some time)!!!

ok as a Windows user, what is stopping people who really want to use Coffeecup software just using the Parallels software apple do.

I have thought about buying a Mac and might do in the near future but there is no wall stopping you using the Parallels software to run Windows and use coffeecup software.

Only thing I can think it is without trying it is the software is buggy or its a pain to setup, if this is the case it will stop me from buying a Mac as I love windows so much.

So what is it about Parallels which is stopping you using it.

It's called Windows Activation when the software will not run on Win2K. :D

Hi People!

For those of you that aren't aware, we look forward to offering all of our software on Mac by the end of 2010.

In the meantime, you can run our software on a Mac using Parallels, or VMware to run XP or Vista. You can find more information at:

Let us know if you have any other questions.
