Will Pre-Design run on a Mac?

Hi Marlene,

Here are the replies to the same question asked in the special Pre-Design Yahoogroup http://groups.yahoo.com/group/Pre-Designgroup on Jan 17 08:

Yes, I use Parallels on my Mac to run my PC programs such as Embird and Pre-Design. Although I have not had time to play much with Pre-Design, I have done enough to know that it works. I am still using Tiger Operating system - I have not upgraded to Leopard - so I cannot say how Parallels is running on the new leopard system.

Pre-Design works well on my Intel Macbook using Bootcamp and Windows XP SE2. Bootcamp is not an emulator but it actually allows the Intel Macbook to become a fully fledged windows machine running at full speed. Google Apple and Bootcamp for more details...

I have run the trial version on iMac, running version 10.5.1. I used Parallels version 3 Build 5582. The Windows version is XP SP2. I have not used Pre-Design much but it seemed to work fine. My trial has run out and I have not purchased it yet. I plan on it. I am a quilter and would use Pre-Design to use with Pro-Q Designer and PCQuilter.

I tried to use PreDesign running Virtual PC with Windows XP. It immediately comes up with an error code and won\'t run. I was so looking forward to using this fantastic program. Any one with hints on how to make this run, please advise.

Hi Sylvia,

The Mac-users who are successfully using Pre-Design on a Mac all have either Bootcamp or Parallels (not Virtual PC).
