I am interested in purchasing Chief Architect, will this software run on my Mac computer?


Yes, Chief Architect X6 and newer software programs will run natively on the Mac operating system, so long as it meets the System Requirements.  The current version's System Requirements can be located on the website.

Chief Architect versions X2 - X5 were supported on Mac computers using Boot Camp that otherwise met the discontinued version's System Requirements.

To learn more about Boot Camp, see Apple's website at: 

Chief Architect X1 and earlier versions were not supported on Mac computers in any capacity.

Note: Running in an emulator, or virtual machine environment, such as Parallels, VirtualBox or VMWare Fusion, is not supported with any version of Chief Architect.
