Virtualization

Parallels Desktop or Vmware Fusion is supported, but please be aware that Esko doesn't test all combinations of MacOSX and Parallels Desktop/Vmware Fusion.

Fileservers

All Esko applications running on Windows OS can use data that is available on network shares. These shares need to be on Windows or Unix/Linux (using SMB) file servers. Mac OS X (version 10.3.x; 10.4.x; 10.5.x; 10.6.x) data servers are also supported, but with limitations. These are standard limitations encountered when connecting to a Mac OS X server from Windows workstations or servers. They are related to losing resource forks of the MAC-application data when a Windows component moves or copies data.
