Using WinTOTAL Aurora or TOTAL on your Apple Computer

TOTAL and WinTOTAL Aurora, as well as our other desktop programs, can't be installed and run natively on a Mac — they must run on the Windows operating system, using Boot Camp or third‑party virtual machine software. Using TOTAL or WinTOTAL Aurora on a Mac requires that the Mac have an Intel processor, and also meets our system requirements.
While we can break down the differences between running Windows on your Mac in a Virtual Machine or with Apple's Boot Camp, we're not Mac experts. If you have any issue with getting Windows running on your Mac, you'll need to consult with a local technician. Our Support Technicians are unable to assist with this process.
The best solution for running TOTAL or WinTOTAL on a Mac is to use Apple's Boot Camp. To learn more about what devices and operating systems are supported by Boot Camp, click here.
If Apple's Boot Camp isn't an option, you can use a third‑party software that emulates the Windows environment within OS X. Our Customers have seen the most success using Parallels Desktop or VMWare Fusion.
Remember, we build software and solutions to solve the real issues you're experiencing every day. The best way to do that is by listening to you, responding quickly, and constantly releasing improvements. To that end, we have built a Feedback system that allows you to give us your ideas for improvements and suggestions, anytime you think of anything. And, it's easy! Just click the Feedback button in the upper right of TOTAL, or the menu in TOTAL for Mobile, and tell us all about it.
