The terminal emulator turns your Mac into a remote terminal. You then log into a Windows machine and run your software on that remote computer. In other words, you need two computers--but all software runs at Windows native speed.

Microsoft's terminal emulator requires Mac OSX 10.2.8 or later. You can download it here: http://www.microsoft.com/mac/downloads.aspx?pid=download&location=/mac/download/misc/rdc_update_103.xml&secid=80&ssid=10&flgnosysreq=True

Hi happyprogramming,
You need a copy of Virtual PC. Microsoft just released version 7. It normally comes with Windows XP, but you may find the response snappier if you use Windows 2000 instead. http://www.microsoft.com/mac/products/virtualpc/virtualpc.aspx?pid=whichver

I've been using it since version 1.

Cheers!

You'll find the Microsoft web site a little bare in its description of Virtual PC. More complete information is available from this web site dedicated to Mac and Windows coexistence: http://www.macwindows.com/VPC6.html

Here's a summary of all the ways to run Windows software using your Mac. One very interesting possibility is Microsoft's free terminal emulator that lets you run software on a Windows box as though it were your own computer. Also take a look at Bochs and Lismore Blue Label. I haven't used any of these approaches, having found that Virtual PC does what I need.

You might be able to get a cross-platform version from the publisher of your Windows software. Almost certainly you can find a different program that does the same (or very similar) job.

Games and extremely specialized vertical applications are really the only places where you absolutely need to run Windows on a Mac. The vertical applications will probably run fine (though somewhat slower). Any games issued in the past couple of years will seem too slow to be playable under emulation, however.
