    How to Install cTrader on the Mac?

    We are going to explain a workaround so you can get cTrader to run on your Mac operating system.


    Partition Software for the Mac

    If you partition your Mac you will make room to install Windows on your OS as well as the Mac OS, this will give you dual boot mode so when you start your machine you can choose which operating system you wish to run. There is also another solution where you will not need to restart your machine to change operating systems and this is to use Parallels, this will allow you to seamlessly switch from one OS to another without having to restart your Mac computer.


    What are Parallels for the Mac?

    This software will allow you to install Windows or another operating system to your Mac, it does this by creating a virtual copy of a computer, inside your Mac. You can then install Windows in the virtual machine just as you would install an operating system. you can also migrate your existing Windows OS from any PC during installation.
