Does DesignBuilder run on Macs?
Posted by Andy Tindale on 06-Apr-20 01:57 PM

DesignBuilder has been developed using a Windows-specific software development system and there is no immediate prospect of the software running natively under the Mac operating system.

However Mac computers do support 2 alternative approaches to running Windows software:

  • Boot Camp where Intel-based Mac computers can be booted using either the Mac or Windows operating systems. This is the recommended approach to use if possible as it runs faster and more reliably than virtual machines.
  • Virtual machines such as Parallels.
