Organizations commonly rely on applications designed to run exclusively on Microsoft Windows. For businesses that have a combination of Apple Mac and Microsoft Windows computers, there are two popular alternatives for running Microsoft Windows-dependent applications on an Apple Mac: an external connection to a physical Windows PC or local emulation of a Windows environment on a Mac computer. Microsoft's Remote Desktop Connection Client for Mac enables you to attach an Apple Mac to a networked Windows-powered PC to use Microsoft Windows software and access network resources. Remote Desktop Connection Client for Mac is a component of Office for Mac and offers major improvements over previous versions. Microsoft's Virtual PC for Apple Mac simulates Microsoft Windows on a Mac system so you can run Microsoft Windows software locally. Virtual PC for Mac was available in high-end editions of Office 2004 for Mac but is not offered in the latest versions 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 support experts can assist your organization to maintain these products for using Microsoft Windows programs on your Macs and can also assist your company to evaluate and install third-party solutions for Windows platform simulation.

Microsoft's Remote Desktop Connection for Apple Mac
Support Services for Remote Desktop Connection Client for Apple MacMicrosoft's Remote Desktop Connection for Mac enables you to connect your Apple Mac to a Windows-based computer to run Windows applications, exchange documents, and share network resources. You can transfer files between your Apple Mac and your Microsoft Windows-based system and print from Windows applications to printers connected to your Apple Mac.

Desktop simulation requires comparatively modest CPU power from the local Apple Mac and therefore in most situations offers better performance than CPU emulation. To attach to a remote Microsoft Windows-powered computer, you need network access and permissions to connect to the computer. The Microsoft Windows computer must be running Terminal Services or Remote Desktop. MS Remote Desktop Connection for Mac is available as a no-cost download or as a component of Office for Mac 2011 and works with Windows Server 2008, 2003, Windows XP Professional, and Microsoft Windows 2000.

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

  • A user environment and options bar that makes the connection function simpler to use
  • Remote Desktop Protocol version 6.0 for faster performance and Vista and Windows 7 connectivity
  • Multiple session support for handling sessions with multiple remote computers
  • Automatic reconnection for resuming a session if you lose the connection
  • Session Window sizing options for executing the remote connection as a full screen or in an adjustable window
  • Mac printer compatibility for printing Windows documents on an Apple Mac printer
  • Network Level Authentication for improved protection when attaching to Windows Vista and Windows 7 PCs
  • Higher screen density to support wide-screen displays
  • Streamlined login options for enhanced efficiency

Virtual PC for Mac
Virtual PC for Apple Mac ConsultingMicrosoft's Virtual PC for Mac simulates an Intel/AMD-type CPU and converts an Apple Mac into a virtual Windows computer that allows you to utilize Windows PC applications, files, and network appliances. Processor emulation is CPU intensive on the client Apple Mac and trades off some speed for simplicity, versatility, and a richer array of capabilities. Microsoft's Virtual PC version 7 is compatible with the Mac G5 processor and Apple Mac OS X version 10.3 (Panther) and was included with the advanced version of MS Office 2004 for Apple Mac.

Important features of Virtual PC 7 for Mac include:

  • Shared Folders and Removable Storage enables file and removable media exchange between Microsoft Windows and Mac applications and allows storing documents and data in a folder on a Mac and accessing them from within Microsoft Windows
  • Access to Apple Mac and Windows PC Peripherals makes it possible to access to an assortment of Windows PC and Apple Mac appliances such as printers and removable drives, even devices made exclusively to be used with a Microsoft Windows computer
  • Cross-OS Cut and Paste enables Microsoft Virtual PC 7 for Mac and a Mac application to share the same clipboard for copying and pasting between Windows and Mac platforms
  • A Quick Save capability permits you to turn off a virtual PC in a single step and start again from that point
  • Zero Configuration Printing for Panther systems (Mac OS X 10.3) eliminates the need to download special printer drivers. You can click Print and use the identical output capability and drivers used by the Mac operating system.
