Anyone running Advisor Channel on a Mac.

If so, are you using Parallels?

Also how does Streetscape work. It seems that it only likes IE, not Firefox. Have Mac users found away to run it?

Thanks!

I'm using Fusion.  Works good with Fusion. 

If you don't want to do that, you can download wine:  www.winehg.org. Then you can put IE 6.0 on it (it's not great, but it works).

Or you can wait until WC comes out.

Thanks Moraen.

Are you running both on the Mac under Fusion? The reason I ask is the Fido tech desk told me the other day that he has never heard anyone running Adv Channel on a Mac.

Any other software issues running Fusion - as most of the software in our industry is made only for Windows.

How about internet type programs like Redtail.

Thanks, I am trying to cover all my bases!

I haven't used it.  I run Windows through Fusion.  But I ONLY use it for IE.  I have no other reason to put any other programs on it.  I haven't had any problems.  I just use Windows XP, instead of  7 or Vista.

Fido tech desk is more underpaid than the Jones tech desk.  I've been using it for quite some time.  I used wine at first, which works fine, except that you can't fill out applications online. 
So I would just have my assistant do it manually.  Worked out.

Web-based financial planning software works (eMoney, MoneyGuidePro).  I just heard that MStar workstation is done online, so that shouldn't be a problem (although all of their demos are windows).



But you can do anything you need to with Fusion. 

Most web-based things work fine on a Mac.
