INFORMATION FOR MACINTOSH USERS:

 

FoodWorks is a Windows software application and is guaranteed to function only on Windows PCs running the Windows operating system.  Therefore, the Nutrition Company cannot support the use of FoodWorks on a Macintosh due to the many variables at work in the Macintosh run-time environment including the particular Macintosh hardware, the Mac OS in use, and the solution you choose for running Windows programs on your Macintosh.  Still, a significant number of Macintosh owners are successfully using FoodWorks on Macintosh computers that have special software installed for running Windows applications (such as Parallels, Boot Camp, or Fusion).  Links to these solutions can be found below.

 

CodeWeavers offers CrossOver Mac, a solution that is providing some Macintosh users with a reliable platform for running FoodWorks 13 through 15.  CrossOver Mac translates FoodWorks as it runs and does not require the purchase of a separate Windows license. FoodWorks 13 through 15 have been tested with CrossOver Mac and have earned a gold medal for run-time reliability.  However, please note that CodeWeavers has NOT tested FoodWorks 16 or higher for compatibility with CrossOver Mac.  FoodWorks 13 through 15 are no longer available.

IMPORTANT: The various solutions above depend on many variables including the Macintosh model, the processor type, the Mac OS version, the type of Windows application, and the version of Windows.  In all cases except CrossOver Mac, additional cost for a Windows license may be incurred.  The Nutrition Company cannot guarantee that any combination will prove suitable for running FoodWorks on a Macintosh, and therefore cannot provide technical support FoodWorks on a Macintosh.  We urge prospective users to compare the costs of the solutions above with the cost of an inexpensive PC, which is sometimes a less costly and more reliable alternative.
