gCADPlus on Macs

gCADPlus landscape software runs happily on Mac computers provided that the processor is Intel based* and some form of Windows emulator application such as CrossOver, Parallels etc. is running.

*Most recent Mac computers (purchased post 2006) are Intel based.

We use CrossOver on our Mac as the Windows emulator, but we have many gCADPlus designers using Parallels and/or Fusion.

About the Crossover trial

Crossover offer a free, fully-functional 14-day trial of CrossOver Mac. The free trial of CrossOver Mac takes about one minute to download. Your trial period begins as soon as you launch CrossOver the first time.

When your free trial ends CrossOver will stop working, but any Windows programs like gCADPlus you’ve installed or run during the trial are still there. Once you purchase a CrossOver license you can remove the trial timer and continue using your Windows software on your Mac – no need to reinstall.
