Companies commonly rely on applications that run solely on Windows. For businesses with a combination of Apple Mac and Windows desktops, there exist two basic alternatives for running Windows-dependent software on macOS or OS X: an external connection to a physical Windows computer or local simulation of a Microsoft Windows operating system on a Mac OS X desktop. Microsoft's Remote Desktop Connection Client for Apple Mac enables you to attach a Mac to a remote Microsoft Windows-based PC to use Microsoft Windows software and access network resources. Microsoft's Remote Desktop Connection for Mac is a component of Office for Mac and offers major improvements over previous releases. Virtual PC for Apple Mac emulates Microsoft Windows on an Apple Mac computer so you are able to run Microsoft Windows applications locally. Microsoft's Virtual PC for Mac was included in advanced versions of Microsoft Office 2004 for Mac but is not offered in the latest versions of Office for Mac. VMware Fusion allows you to run Windows as well as most other operating systems on a Mac.

Progent's macOS and OS X consultants can assist you to manage these products for running Microsoft Windows programs on your Apple Macs and can in addition help your company to evaluate and install other products for Microsoft Windows PC simulation.

Microsoft's Remote Desktop Connection Client for Mac
Support Services for Microsoft Remote Desktop Connection Client for MacRemote Desktop Connection Client for Apple Mac enables you to connect your Apple Mac to a Windows-powered system to execute Microsoft Windows software, access files, and utilize system resources. You can transfer documents between your Apple Mac and your Windows-based system and output from Windows programs to printers connected to your Mac.

Desktop simulation demands relatively modest processing power from the client Mac and therefore in most scenarios offers higher responsiveness than processor simulation. To connect to a Windows-based computer, you need network connectivity and permissions to attach to the Windows computer. The Windows machine must be running either Terminal Services or Remote Desktop. MS Remote Desktop Connection for Mac is provided as a free web download or as part of Microsoft Office for Mac 2011 and is compatible with Windows Server 2008, 2003, XP Professional, and Windows 2000.

Microsoft Remote Desktop Connection for Mac version 2 provides improved features including:

  • A GUI interface and options bar that makes the attachment window simpler to use
  • Remote Desktop Protocol 6.0 for faster throughput and Windows Vista and Windows 7 compatibility
  • Multiple session capability for handling connections with a number of computers
  • Automatic re-attach for restarting a session if you lose the connection
  • Session Window sizing alternatives for executing the remote connection in full-screen mode or in an adjustable window
  • Apple Mac printing compatibility for outputting Microsoft Windows files on an Apple Mac printer
  • Network Level Authentication for enhanced protection when attaching to Vista and Windows 7 computers
  • Higher screen resolution to accommodate wide-screen monitors
  • Streamlined login procedures for enhanced efficiency

Microsoft's Virtual PC for Apple Mac
Virtual PC for Apple Mac ConsultingVirtual PC for Apple Mac simulates an Intel-class processor and converts a Mac into a virtual Microsoft Windows computer that allows you to utilize Windows PC applications, documents, and network appliances. CPU emulation is processor intensive on the local Apple Mac and loses some speed in exchange for convenience, versatility, and a richer set of capabilities. Microsoft's Virtual PC 7 for Mac works with the Apple Mac G5 platform and Mac OS X 10.3 (Panther) and was included with the Professional Edition of MS Office 2004 for Apple Mac.

Key benefits of Microsoft's Virtual PC version 7 include:

  • Shared Folders and Temporary Media allows file and media exchange between Windows and Mac programs and allows saving documents and data in a folder on an Apple Mac and retrieving them from within Windows
  • Shared Apple Mac and Windows PC Peripherals allows access to an assortment of Microsoft Windows PC and Mac appliances such as printers and removable hard disks, even devices made exclusively to be used on a Windows computer
  • Multi-platform Copy and Paste allows Virtual PC version 7 and a Mac application to use the same clipboard for cutting and pasting between Microsoft Windows and Apple Mac platforms
  • A Quick Save feature allows users to turn off a virtual PC in one step and resume from that position
  • No Set-up Printing for Panther systems (Mac OS X 10.3) eliminates the need to install specific drivers. It is possible to select Print and use the same output capability and drivers utilized by the Apple Mac operating system.
