ArchiOffice/EngineerOffice 20xx is a web-based application built using Microsoft’s .Net technology. While this technology enables your employees to access the application using either a Windows or Mac system, it must be installed on a server having a Windows operating system. If you have a single Mac system, you can set up a virtual Windows machine using either VMWare or Parallels Server virtualization software on it. For firms with more than five users, we recommend using a dedicated PC running Windows 2008.
If you install Parallels Server on your Mac AND have more than 5 users, we recommend that you install one of the below Guest Operating Systems on the Parallels:
- Windows Server 2008
- Windows Server 2003 SP2, R2
Please read the Set Up Mac for ArchiOffice whitepaper for instructions on how to prepare your Mac computer as a server for ArchiOffice.
