Currently, we do not offer a pCon.planner version for macOS, and do not officially support Parallels or any other VM.

On older Mac systems with Intel hardware as a base, the use of Bootcamp is possible.
BootCamp allows the native installation of Microsoft Windows – making the computer a fully supported platform.
When booting the computer, you then have to switch between MacOS and Windows.
Bootcamp is unfortunately not officially supported by the license protection used (Gemalto/Safenet).

Alternatively, Windows virtualization (such as via Parallels, VMWare or Virtualbox) can be used,
This will start a separately running virtual system under MacOS.

Notes on Parallels
pCon.planner works with OpenGL 3.0, but unfortunately Parallels for Mac does not provide this standard. This means that pCon.planners lacks all rendering modes with shader technology, among other things. Users can still work with the software for the most part, but will have to live with some limitations.

Notes on the new ARM Platform
Here we would like to refer to our system requirements – especially regarding processors.
All newer Mac systems with ARM processors can only run “Windows on ARM” under Parallels. Thus no usual Windows software works for the Intel/AMD processors. For this reason, Windows emulates a layer here for such applications. This double emulation unfortunately makes the usage very inefficient.

Hardware-related processes, such as the pCon.planner Safenet license protection, only work to a limited extent in this scenario.
In general, please note that license protection for our paid PRO version is only available for virtual environments to a limited extent.
Please understand that we cannot provide support in connection with the use of BootCamp or a Windows virtualization for the reasons mentioned above.

The use of pCon.planner in scenarios described above is without warranty.

Does pCon.planner also work in the Mac systems and with Mac OS?, 1.4 out of 5 based on 36 ratings
