Organizations commonly rely on software applications designed to run exclusively on Microsoft Windows. For companies with a combination of Mac and Windows computers, there exist two basic alternatives for using Microsoft Windows-dependent software on an Apple Mac: remote control of a physical Windows PC or local emulation of a Microsoft Windows environment on a Mac computer. Microsoft's Remote Desktop Connection Client for Apple Mac enables you to connect an Apple Mac to a networked Windows-powered PC to run Microsoft Windows software and share network resources. Microsoft's Remote Desktop Connection Client for Mac is a component of Office for Mac and features major improvements over older releases. Microsoft's Virtual PC for Apple Mac simulates Windows on an Apple Mac computer so you can use Microsoft Windows programs directly. Microsoft's Virtual PC for Apple Mac was included in advanced versions of Office 2004 for Mac but is not included in the latest releases of Microsoft 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 consultants can help your organization to manage these products for running Microsoft Windows programs on your Macs and can also assist your organization to evaluate and configure third-party solutions for Windows platform emulation.

Microsoft's Remote Desktop Connection Client for Apple Mac
Expertise for Microsoft Remote Desktop Connection for MacRemote Desktop Connection for Apple Mac allows you to connect your Apple Mac to a Windows-based system to execute Microsoft Windows software, access files, and share network resources. You can transfer files between your Mac and your Microsoft Windows-based system and output from Microsoft Windows software to any printers connected to your Mac.

Desktop emulation requires relatively little processing utilization from the client Mac and therefore in typical scenarios provides higher responsiveness than processor simulation. To connect to a remote Microsoft Windows-powered computer, you must have network access and authorization to attach to the Windows computer. The Windows computer must also be running either Terminal Services or Remote Desktop. Microsoft Remote Desktop Connection for Apple Mac is provided as a free web download or as a component of Office for Mac 2011 and works with Windows Server 2008, Windows Server 2003, XP Professional, and Windows 2000.

Remote Desktop Connection Client for Mac 2 offers enhanced features including:

  • A GUI environment and options bar that makes the attachment function easier to use
  • Remote Desktop Protocol version 6.0 for better throughput and Vista and Windows 7 connectivity
  • Multiple session capability for managing sessions with a number of computers
  • Automatic re-attach for resuming a remote session if you drop the connection
  • Session Window sizing options for running the remote session in full-screen mode or in an adjustable window
  • Mac printer compatibility for outputting Windows documents on an Apple Mac printer
  • Network Level Authentication (NLA) for improved protection when attaching to Vista and Windows 7 computers
  • Higher screen density to accommodate wide-screen displays
  • Streamlined login procedures for improved efficiency

Microsoft's Virtual PC for Mac
Virtual PC for Mac ConsultingMicrosoft's Virtual PC for Mac simulates an Intel/AMD-type CPU and turns an Apple Mac into a virtual Microsoft Windows machine that allows you to access Windows PC software, documents, and network resources. Processor emulation is processor intensive on the local Mac and trades off some performance in exchange for simplicity, versatility, and a richer set of features. Microsoft's Virtual PC 7 for Mac is compatible with the Mac G5 processor and Apple Mac OS X version 10.3 (Panther) and was included with the Professional Edition of Office 2004 for Apple Mac.

Key features of Virtual PC version 7 include:

  • Shared Files and Removable Media allows file and media exchange between Windows and Mac applications and permits saving documents and data in a folder on an Apple Mac and accessing them from within Windows
  • Access to Apple Mac and Microsoft Windows PC Peripherals makes it possible to access to a variety of Windows PC and Apple Mac peripherals such as printers and removable disks, even ones designed exclusively to be used with a Windows computer
  • Multi-platform Copy and Paste enables Virtual PC 7 for Mac and an Apple Mac application to share a common clipboard for copying and pasting between Microsoft Windows and Mac environments
  • A Quick Save feature permits you to shut down a virtual PC in one step and resume from that point
  • Zero Configuration Printing for Panther users (Mac OS X 10.3) does away with the need to install special drivers. You can select Print and utilize the same printing functionality and drivers used by the Mac operating system.
