Running ACD/Labs Software on Mac Computers

ACD/Labs desktop software is not natively supported in a Mac OS environment.

It is possible to run our desktop software in a Virtual Machine environment. In fact, many of our users and employees are Mac fans who have been running our software in virtual environments for years.

The demo video shows you how to use Virtual Box to configure and install a virtual machine. Other options are available including those below:

"Everything that I've done so far on this Mac using the ACD/Labs modules (1D and 2D NMR Processor) occurs at breathtaking speed; calculating almost instantaneously."
Jed Fisher, University of Notre Dame
"The ACD/Labs software, while not made to run in a native Mac environment, becomes a viable and appealing option once Virtual PC is installed."
Paul Sigala, Stanford University
