OriginLab recommends running Origin from Boot Camp, if dual-booting is an option. For those who prefer to run Origin as an application on your Mac desktop without a reboot of the Mac OS, we suggest the following virtualization software:
Steps to install Origin/OriginPro:
- Install the virtualization software on your Mac computer.
- Using the virtualization software, create a new virtual computer and install Windows on the virtual computer.
- Run the virtual computer on which Windows is installed. When Windows is ready, install Origin.
Note: Other options for running Origin on a Mac such as using CrossOver or WineBottler are currently not recommended by OriginLab.
