>You'd have to try it to see if it worked for the software you want to run, though. I see there's an easy install for Flare 5 (!), but for more recent versions you'd just have to try installing with the .exe and see how it went.
Yeah, I looked at the âWhat Runsâ page, and everything is pretty old. I donât want to waste the time to deal with âmaybe itâll work and maybe it wonâtââthat wonât be cheaper than just purchasing a Windows upgrade (my PC is on Windows 7, but it seems that a VM on Mac would be the ideal time to upgrade to Windows 10, and yes, I know itâs a giant advertising system, but I find it simpler to keep current, especially so I can use current apps and exchange files with my clients).
So Iâm moving Crossover to the ânoâ list, and moving up Virtual Box, which Iâve easily used before.
