The XLAutomation support team regularly receives request from MAC users asking if our workbooks are compatible with a MAC. Unfortunately the answer is NO....the XLAutomation product workbooks have been developed specifically for the Windows operating system.
Don't despair there are some options for MAC users that want access to one of our product workbooks
Options to run Windows on your MAC
There are many ways to run Windows on your MAC find below links to technical guides that will assist you in running Windows on a MAC. If the links are not functional we have attached PDF versions of those pages for review.
Once you have Windows running on your MAC, install Microsoft Office and you can use the XLAutomation workbook on your MAC.
Find below feedback from some of our MAC users and how they have setup their own workstations to run our workbooks
I run my XLAutomation workbook on a Windows emulator called Crossover, by CodeWeavers on Mac OSX 10.12.5 Sierra. Crossover is a relatively cheap app that does not require a of copy Windows. I then installed Office 2007 into Crossover in an XP Windows “bottle” because it is a Codeweavers supported application.
I’ve previously used Virtual Machines from both VMWare and Parallels, but for now I’m sticking with VMware Fusion, mainly because that includes 2 licences.
Bootcamp is another Mac alternative, the main hassle is a need to physically shut down “Windows” to revert to Mac, and vice versa.
