Run Windows programs on your Mac..without Windows

One of the great features of current Apple computers is the ability to install Windows to run apps not available for OSX. This is is possible by using  solutions like Apple’s Boot CampParallels andVMware Fusion and then installing Windows to run alongside Mac OSX. The disadvantage to this approach is the need to purchase a Windows License, as well as one for the Virtualization app you plan to use if you don’t want to use Boot Camp. This can get costly if you only occasionally need to run a Windows-Specific application. Now there is another way..WinOnX from NES Software may be the solution for you.

WinOnX easy-to-use application that makes it possible to run Microsoft Windows software on an Apple Macintosh. The newest version, WinOnX 1.3, adds support for many more Windows applications, and a new program compatibility database that lets users quickly see how likely their program is to work with WinOnX and if there are any known issues. WinOnX 1.3 also offers the ability to launch multiple instances of a Windows program simultaneously and supports native Mac OS X open-file dialog.

WinOnX Compatibility

The original version of WinOnX worked well with some apps but was difficult to troubleshoot when it did not work. The latest versionWinOnX 1.3 now includes automatic problem analysis — making it fast and easy to diagnose and resolve errors — and the ability to rate, review and comment on program compatibility right from the status bar. The developer claims WinOnX supports over 70 percent of Windows programs, requires no Windows boot time and has a low cost, easy setup. It is only $4.99 and is available at the Mac App Store
