ccScan does not run natively on Mac computers or computers/notepads running on IOS, Windows RT, Linux or Unix operating systems. However ccScan runs well on Virtual Machines (VMs) that are installed on iMacs, MacBook Pro, and MacBook Air. In fact, our software engineers even develop and test ccScan on an iMac using VMware Fusion. And a number of our customers use Macs for running ccScan.

VMware Fusion, Parallels Desktop, VirtualBox, CrossOver and Boot Camp are viable VMs for running ccScan on a Mac. To find out which is best for your environment search the Web or review Macworld or Mac Support articles. We use Fusion so that is the only recommendation we can provide at this time.

Generally, Fusion is better performing and possibly less expensive than Parallels, because it can run on multiple personal systems. Both may perform better than VirtualBox, CrossOver or BootCamp. Cost include the cost of the VM for your specific operating system and the cost of a Windows client. Most of the newer Windows versions are available as an ISO file or USB thumb drive to simplify the Windows installation.

Most peripherals of your Mac will work in the VM including TWAIN-driven scanners designed to run on Windows. Please note that ccScan no longer supports Windows XP clients.
