* Every new Mac lets you install and run Windows at native speed, using a built-in utility called Boot Camp. In order to run ARCHLine.XP in a Mac environment you need to install the Window operating system too.

In addition to Boot Camp there are other virtualization solutions (such as VMware Fusion or Parallels Desktop) to run Windows on a Mac. Please check the homepage for further details about actual software requirements and ask your Apple Store expert. Please note that in case of using virtualization solutions, hardlocks are NOT supported. In such cases ONLY non-hardlock licenses are supported.

If you are a Parallels Desktop or VMware user please note that for a proper performance you might need a more powerful configuration than the specifics listed above. Please do not forget to consult your Apple Store expert.

**Please note that you will need at least 512 MB memory for the videocard for 3D visualization.
