Mac Compatible with BootCamp?
« on: November 22, 2008, 02:42:20 PM »
Wondering if anyone has successfully gotten TD to run on an Intel MacBook using BootCamp?  Theoretically it "should" work, since you are running Windows natively, but are there any known issues to be aware of?

I'm a Mac guy that has an old ThinkPad thats used only for TD, that I'd like to upgrade to v.2.  ThinkPad is too slow, so I'm looking at my upgrade options.  Ok, I'm really looking for an excuse to get a new MacBook!

Thanks!

OK, I'm updating back so that other folks with this same question will have the resource.

Apparently TD does work fine on an Intel Mac using BootCamp.  There is one hitch though....  you must use an external 2-button mouse to properly utilize all the features (some crucial, others not so crucial).  Also, BootCamp re-routes some of the function keys as well (Apple key and the Option and Control keys).

Thanks for the update.  I'm sure there are others who will benefit from this.

Am happily running TD under VMWare Fusion 4 on a 2011 11" MacBook Air with OSX Lion ...

I have been using TD on my MacBook Pro with BootCamp in Windows XP, no problems.
