Organizations commonly rely on applications that run exclusively on Microsoft Windows. For businesses that have a combination of Apple Mac and Microsoft Windows computers, there exist two basic solutions for using Windows-dependent applications on macOS or OS X: an external connection to a physical Windows computer or local emulation of a Windows environment on a Mac computer. Microsoft's Remote Desktop Connection Client for Apple Mac allows you to attach an Apple Mac to a networked Microsoft Windows-based PC to use Microsoft Windows applications and share system resources. Microsoft's Remote Desktop Connection Client for Mac is included in Microsoft Office for Mac and features major enhancements over older versions. Virtual PC for Mac simulates Microsoft Windows on a Mac system so that you are able to use Windows software directly. Virtual PC for Apple Mac was included in advanced editions of Microsoft Office 2004 for Apple Mac but is not included in the current versions of Office for Apple Mac. VMware Fusion allows you to run Windows as well as most other operating systems on a Mac.

Progent's macOS and OS X support experts can assist your company to manage these products for running Windows programs on your Macs and can also assist you to evaluate and configure third-party solutions for Microsoft Windows platform simulation.

Microsoft's Remote Desktop Connection Client for Apple Mac
Support Services for Microsoft Remote Desktop Connection for MacMicrosoft's Remote Desktop Connection Client for Mac enables you to attach your Apple Mac to a Windows-based system to run Microsoft Windows software, access files, and utilize system resources. You can copy files between your Mac and your Windows-based system and print from Windows software to any printers attached to your Apple Mac.

Desktop emulation requires relatively modest processing utilization from the local Mac and so in most situations offers better responsiveness than processor simulation. To attach to a Windows-powered computer, you must have network access and permissions to connect to the Windows computer. The Microsoft Windows machine must be running Terminal Services or Remote Desktop. MS Remote Desktop Connection Client for Apple Mac is provided as a free download or as a component of Microsoft Office for Mac 2011 and works with Windows Server 2008, Windows Server 2003, XP Professional, and Microsoft Windows 2000.

Remote Desktop Connection for Mac 2 provides improved features that include:

  • A user environment and options bar that makes the attachment function simpler to use
  • Remote Desktop Protocol 6.0 for better throughput and Vista and Windows 7 connectivity
  • Multiple session support for managing connections with multiple remote computers
  • Automatic re-attach for resuming a session if you lose the network connection
  • Session Window sizing alternatives for running the remote connection as a full screen or in a resizable window
  • Mac printer support for printing Windows documents on a Mac-connected printer
  • Network Level Authentication for improved security when connecting to Windows Vista and Windows 7 computers
  • Higher screen density to support wide-screen monitors
  • Faster login options for enhanced productivity

Microsoft's Virtual PC for Apple Mac
Microsoft's Virtual PC for Mac ConsultingVirtual PC for Mac emulates an Intel-class CPU and converts an Apple Mac into the equivalent of Windows computer that permits you to utilize Windows PC software, files, and network appliances. Processor simulation is processor intensive on the client Mac and trades off some speed for convenience, versatility, and a richer array of features. Microsoft's Virtual PC version 7 is compatible with the Mac G5 platform and Apple Mac OS X 10.3 (Panther) and was provided with the advanced version of Microsoft Office 2004 for Apple Mac.

Key features of Virtual PC 7 for Mac include:

  • Sharing of Folders and Removable Storage enables file and media exchange between Microsoft Windows and Apple Mac programs and permits storing files in a folder on an Apple Mac and accessing them from within Windows
  • Shared Apple Mac and Microsoft Windows PC Peripherals allows access to a variety of Microsoft Windows PC and Apple Mac appliances including printers and external disks, even ones designed specifically to be used on a Windows system
  • Multi-platform Copy and Paste enables Microsoft Virtual PC 7 for Mac and an Apple Mac program to share the same clipboard for cutting and pasting between Microsoft Windows and Apple Mac environments
  • A Quick Save feature permits users to shut down a virtual PC in one step and start again from that position
  • Zero Configuration Printing for Panther users (Mac OS X 10.3) does away with the need to download specific drivers. Users can select Print and utilize the same printing capability and software drivers utilized by the Apple Mac operating system.
