Alpha Anywhere can be run 3 ways:
How to run Alpha Anywhere on a Mac
You can install Alpha Anywhere on a PC and then connect to that PC using remote Desktop, or you can install Windows on your Mac using Parallels or virtualization software. Both methods have been tested and perform well. For best results with Parallels, open the Windows Task Manager and stop the prl_cc process from running. This process sometimes misbehaves and makes Windows run slowly.
The Alpha Experience lets you build, test, and deploy Alpha Anywhere applications during your 30-day trial period. Instead of installing the Alpha Anywhere software and configuring the server, we set everything up on a machine that we host for you. Apply for your Alpha Experience Account
