    "Run our software application on any computer or laptop running the Microsoft Windows XP, Vista & 7 operating system. Any computer with the ability to run these operating systems has all the memory resources necessary to run our software program."

    That is straight from their website under the system requirements for the software. You would have to have your apple set up to run parallel (Run Mac OS and Windows OS). Hope this helps.

    Our software was not designed for a Mac computer. The software was created for computers running a Microsoft Windows operating system. However, if the Mac computer has software that simulates the Windows operating system, our software will run on it. The best way to know for sure is to ask your Apple store about how to run Windows based software on a Mac. Or, if you think your Mac is already setup to run Windows based software, simply try installing and running our free trial. If the free trial works successfully, it will continue to operate successfully after it's purchased.

    This paragraph was taken from the groundskeeper pro website.

    I switched to Mac a few years ago and by installing Parallels I am able to run apple and Windows at the same time. I only use my windows for my GKP and that is it. only issue is printer alignment for certain reports. Not sure if it is the HP printer of the Mac causing the problems. Everything prints OK but would like to be able to make a few adjustments

    Is that a software app, that allows you to run on the windows base platform ?

    if so. would it not be running the apple os in the back ground ? and it would use a lot of memory ?
