Dear mfuente,

Our DIALux evo lighting design software has only been developed for Windows systems, which we also support exclusively. We have not planned a pure Mac version for the near future.

However, we can give you successfully tested workarounds with which it is possible to use our DIALux evo software on an Apple system. Maybe this will also works on a Linux system.

It is possible to use both the 32-bit variant and the 64-bit version of our DIALux evo software with the virtualisation software VMware Fusion 8.1.0 in any Windows environment supported by our evo software on a Mac system.

From Parallels 13 (from November 2017), you can also use our DIALux evo version in any Windows environment spported by our evo software on a Mac system.

Here you can find the video from Parallels about this:

More information on this topic can certainly be found in forums or the respective product homepages.

Unfortunately, we cannot tell you whether these workarounds also work with our latest DIALux evo version 10.1, as we have not tested this yet. As of our evo version 9, OpenGL 3.2 is required in any case.

If you would install the older evo 10.0 version again, please use the following download link.

Maybe the following thread from our DIALux board might be of help:

Best regards
