Shri Jyoti Star and the Apple Mac or Chrome OS


Whatever type of Mac you have you can run Shri Jyoti Star as long as you are running Windows (or use Crossover). How you do this depends on which type of Mac you have. The options are not as complex as they may sound and they have the added benefit that you can then run many other Windows programs on your Mac!

You have three choices.

1. The recommended option is to use software from Parallels or VMWare Fusion (both likely cheaper on Amazon) which then allows you to install MS Windows so it can run in a window while you do other things on your Mac. These companies have made the process as easy as possible. A handy guide to using Parallels is here. This guide refers to Windows 7 but installing Windows 10 or 8 is much the same.


2. Crossover is a low-cost product that lets some Windows software run on your Mac without Windows. The new Shri Jyoti Star 9 works with Crossover. Crossover starts at $39.95 and can be trialed for free.

Using Crossover is easy, here's how:

A) After installing Crossover, start it up and under the Bottles menu, select New Bottle. Choose the latest Windows type offered (though it seems to work the same under different bottle types). Click Create.

B) Click the new Bottle you just created and double-click the Run Command icon. In the dialog browse for the Shri Jyoti Star install file you downloaded after purchase. Then click Run and follow the prompts.

Crossover or Wine may work on Linux but we have not checked this. Wine is free but is more challenging to set up.


3. You can also install Windows on your Mac using Apple's Boot Camp which is provided in OS X Leopard. A tutorial on how to do this is here.

Note: I have not checked the accuracy of all the information on the links provided but it looks good.

Chrome OS and Chromebooks

Crossover Support - brand new and not tested yet but should work
