Companies often rely on applications that run solely on Windows. For companies with a combination of Mac and Windows computers, there exist two basic solutions for running Microsoft Windows-dependent software on macOS or OS X: an external connection to a physical Windows computer or local simulation of a 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 networked Windows-powered computer to use Microsoft Windows software and access system resources. Remote Desktop Connection Client for Mac is included in Microsoft Office for Mac and features significant enhancements over previous releases. Virtual PC for Mac emulates Windows on a Mac system so you are able to run Windows applications locally. Virtual PC for Mac was available in advanced versions of Microsoft Office 2004 for Mac but is not offered in the current releases of Microsoft 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 help you to manage these solutions for using Windows programs on your Apple Macs and can also help your business to evaluate and configure third-party solutions for Microsoft Windows PC emulation.

Microsoft's Remote Desktop Connection for Mac
Expertise for Microsoft Remote Desktop Connection for Apple MacRemote Desktop Connection Client for Mac enables you to connect your Apple Mac to a Windows-based computer to run Windows programs, access documents, and share network resources. You can transfer documents between your Apple Mac and your Windows-powered computer and print from Microsoft Windows software to any printers attached to your Apple Mac.

Desktop emulation requires comparatively modest processing power from the client Apple Mac and so in most situations provides higher responsiveness than CPU emulation. To attach to a remote Windows-powered computer, you need network connectivity and permissions to attach to the computer. The Windows machine must be running either Terminal Services or Remote Desktop. MS Remote Desktop Connection Client for Mac is provided as a free download or as part of Microsoft Office for Mac 2011 and works with Windows Server 2008, 2003, XP Professional, and Microsoft Windows 2000 Server.

MS Remote Desktop Connection for Mac 2 provides enhanced features that include:

  • A GUI interface and menu bar that makes the connection window easier to use
  • Remote Desktop Protocol version 6.0 for faster performance and Vista and Windows 7 compatibility
  • Multiple session support for handling connections with a number of computers
  • Automatic re-attach for restarting a remote session if you lose the connection
  • Window sizing alternatives for running the remote connection in full-screen mode or in a resizable window
  • Apple Mac printing support for outputting Microsoft Windows files on an Apple Mac printer
  • Network Level Authentication for improved security when connecting to Windows Vista and Windows 7 PCs
  • Improved screen density to accommodate wide-screen displays
  • Faster login options for enhanced productivity

Microsoft's Virtual PC for Mac
Virtual PC for Apple Mac HelpMicrosoft's Virtual PC for Apple Mac simulates an Intel-class processor and turns an Apple Mac into the equivalent of Microsoft Windows computer that permits you to access Windows software, documents, and network appliances. CPU simulation is processor intensive on the local Mac and trades off some speed for simplicity, versatility, and a more complete set of features. Microsoft's Virtual PC version 7 works with the Mac G5 platform and Mac OS X 10.3 (Panther) and was included with the advanced version of Office 2004 for Apple Mac.

Key features of Virtual PC version 7 include:

  • Sharing of Folders and Removable Media allows file and media exchange between Windows and Mac applications and allows saving files in a folder on a Mac and accessing them from within Microsoft Windows
  • Access to Apple Mac and Windows PC Appliances makes it possible to access to an assortment of Windows PC and Mac peripherals such as printers and external disks, even ones designed specifically to be run on a Microsoft Windows system
  • Multi-OS Copy and Paste enables Virtual PC version 7 and an Apple Mac application to share a common clipboard for copying and pasting between Microsoft Windows and Apple Mac environments
  • A Quick Save feature allows you to shut down a virtual PC in a single step and resume from that point
  • No Set-up Printing for Panther systems (Apple Mac OS X 10.3) eliminates the need to install specific drivers. Users can click Print and utilize the identical printing functionality and software drivers utilized by the Apple Mac OS.
