    Buy a PC alongside it.

    But seriously I would guess its like all other windows software, you will want to get WineX or some VM software that can run an instance of Windows or at least emulate it. You could also run Windows in bootcamp, none of these options are likely to be as quick as a dedicated windows machine though. Also you could rent a Windows VPS

    Im definitely prepared to get a software but do you really think a separate windows machine would e a better option? the fact that i have a minimum wage job and not much IM income to speak of makes purchasing another machine not in my best interest. what i will do what must be done i suppose

    Installing SEnuke on Windows VPS and then accessing SEnuke with RDP will be a better option on Mac!

    Yeah, I kinda agree with BuildMoreLinks. A VPS will allow you to run your windows software without having to resort to using Apple's bad Bootcamp drivers or emulation software. VPS often have very fast internet connections also which can be a boon for a lot of SEO software.

    If money is an issue though emulation/VM software may be better as a VPS will come with additional costs every month.

    you can install windows on a mac and run both operating systems with out any conflict you do however have to buy a $30 dollar software so you do not have to reboot to access both programs simultaneously but trust me it is worth it!!!! the best of both world in one pc/mac :p Regards Suave

    I have Parallels and it's okay everything runs fine but I am going to pick up a desktop PC soon enough to better run my SEO software. Look into a VPS for Se Nuke so you can run it 24/7 without bothering you (slows down computer).

    It runs as a separate window, so you can have your normal Mac OS and your Windows version on Parallels but it comes with an option on the lower right corner to either make it fullscreen or modality which if you use it basically ends up looking just like you're on a windows computer. Pretty cool I must say.

    Awesome thank you this software looks like a very promising alternative as well. I was worried I wouldnt be able to use SEO software myself. Appreciate it
