Can I use Spooky2 software on a Mac computer? And if not, what kind of PC do I need?

1. In theory, yes, you can by using BootCamp to create a Windows partition or purchasing virtualization software. In practice, however, we've found that the more layers of abstraction you add to any system, the more likely it is that problems will arise. And unless you're a seasoned Mac and Windows troubleshooter, you may find that tracking causes and finding solutions is more trouble than it's worth.

We recommend that you buy a cheap Windows netbook or used desktop model, and dedicate it to running your Spooky2 system.

However, if you wish to try the Mac route, please download the document "Spooky2 in Linux or Mac" from here:

Windows XP, Windows Vista, Windows 7, Windows 8/8.1, Windows 10 can be used for Spooky2 now.

For the requirement of the computer, please check it from:

2. Hardware requirements for Windows 10 Memory (RAM) IA-32 edition: 1 GB. and for the x86-64 edition: 2 GB. Storage space for Windows 10 uses a 32 GB minimum HDD hard disk drive or other storage devices like a solid-state drive (SSD).

3. I am running Spooky2 on an embedded WIN7 machine. Powerful enough and not expensive. Embedded WIN7 machi9nes for under 50 for example on eBay.

4. Some people still run Spooky2 software on a very old Windows XP from 2001. I have used Spooky2 software on a very old Windows XP from 2008. Very old and very slow for many things runs Spooky2 software well.

  • It is inexcusable, bordering on appalling, that a company would not make their equipment compatible with Apple computers in the 21st century. Shame on you.

  • Was so excited about this till i realised its only compatible with windows. How disappointing! Cant believe in 2023 your not able to make it available for Apple users.
