Alternative programs for work with the Trading Platform on Mac OS and Linux

Also you find a brief overview of a few popular products, allowing to use programs and Windows applications on devices with other operating systems.

 

Virtual Box

This program is free for non-commercial use. It allows you to install Windows directly from your operating system and run it if you want to use  Windows apps. After you install and run Windows using Virtual Box you can use MetaTrader as usual. In fact, you are using the full version of BML-MetaTrader 4 through Windows.

Note: as the process involves the installation of Windows, you’ll need the installation disc, free space on your computer and some time.

 

Parallels Desktop

The program is paid. The site developer has a free trial version.

This program also involves the installation of Windows from your operating system, while  MetaTrader operating procedures and features of the program are similar to VirtualBox.

 

Crossover 

The program is paid. The site developer has a free trial version.

The program is specifically designed to run the most commonly used Windows applications from Linux operating systems and Mac OS X.

The advantage of this program is that it does not require installation. The disadvantage is  that there is no MetaTrader in the list of applications supported officially by Cross Over. So with the release of the update of the trading platform, software conflicts are possible, up to partial or complete failure of MetaTrader. You are recommended to watch for MT updates while using this program.
