Apple? The answer is YES! Below are the different ways .

  1. Run as an application using PARALLELS. You are able to run both the MAC OS and the Windows OS side by side. You must install your own Windows CD. Once Windows is working, browse to www.fasttrack.net to download and to install FTComm or the free trial.

    Pricing and additional information on installation on Apple products can be found on their website by clicking the link above
     

  2. BOOT CAMP: This is already installed on the MAC. You run either the MAC OS or Windows. You must install your own Windows CD. Once Windows is working, browse to www.fasttrack.net to download and to install FTComm.
     

  3. VMWARE FUSION: For $79, you can install the VMWare Windows emulator on your MAC and run FastTrack for the Web within it. You don't need to install a Windows CD, but you do need the license number of a valid Windows copy. The Fusion process downloads what it needs of Windows and then provides and environment into which you can install FTComm..

FastTrack Support will assist you with installation of Ft4Web within these options once you already have installed and learned how to use the chosen Windows option.

Note: If you are thinking that switching to a Mac will make things easier and simpler, then think again. Mac's are sophisticated devices that have their own problems and learning curve. Certainly, if you primary planned use is to run Windows programs, like FastTrack, on a Mac, then do yourself a favor and get a Windows PC instead.

Note: Get a two-button mouse for your Mac so you will be able to use right-clicking within Windows Programs.
