1184058 - Xcelsius on the MacIntosh


Can you use Xcelsius on the MacIntosh (Mac)?


Since the implementation of Microsoft Excel running on a Mac is quite different from Excel running on a Windows machine there are no immediate plans to port Crystal Xcelsius to the Mac platform. 

You will need to create SWF files using Xcelsius on a Windows-based computer. You can run the applications/models that are created using Xcelsius on a Mac but will still need a Windows-based computer to create the content.

If you want to run Xcelsius on your Mac, the only option at this moment would be to use Virtual PC on your Mac and have Windows 2000+ and Office 2000+ (for Windows) installed on your Mac.
