I am interested in purchasing Chief Architect. Will this software run on a Mac computer?


Yes, Chief Architect X6 and newer program versions will run natively on the Mac operating system, macOS, so long as it meets the System Requirements. Please see the current version's System Requirements page to learn more.

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

Note: Please note that running in an emulator, or virtual machine environment, such as Hyper-V, VMWare, Parallels, or VirtualBox is not supported.
