Sharpcap and Apple

Post by melvin » Tue Jan 15, 2019 10:04 am

Hi I am thinking of buying a new laptop and am looking at an Apple but it seems that the majority of the Apples seem to be Mac, my question is would Sharpcap run OK?
Apple have laptops with SSD already installed and the GB I would want would be no less than 8.

Hi melvin,

SharpCap is designed for Windows only. To get this to work on a Mac you would have to run Windows (win 10 if you want latest SC version) via bootcamp. Sharpcap will not run on native Apple operating system.

If you are set on using a native Mac OS then possible options are:
The first 2 options have a cost but allow free trials which would enable you to check out your hardware. Option 3 is free and written by Patrick Chevalley, author of Cartes du Ciel.
