As there seems to have been very little comment/confirmation that Behold can be made to run successfully on Mac OS X I thought I would add my own findings:
1. Installing and running Behold on a Virtual Windows System (Windows 7/8.1 on Parallels and VirtualBox) works flawlessly; and also
2. Installation on a Mac under WINE is a straightforward process and the end product runs just like a 'real' Mac app.
As a WINE installation works perfectly on OS X, which is developed from a Unix/Linux (BSD) base, installation on any of many Linux variants should be equally straightforward. And, of course, VirtualBox is also available for Linux systems so users can install a Virtual Windows system if they want the full experience.
Looking forward to the next Behold update(s) so that I can continue testing (and using).
Thank you for the confirmation that Behold will work under Parallels and Virtual Box on a Mac. I'm not sure if anyone has tested that before.
I did know that it ran okay under Wine. Behold has a page at the Wine HQ, and Version 1.0.x has been given a rating of Gold under Wine.
Hello all !
I just wanted you to know that Behold is also running perfectly on Mac OSX Yosemite with the free software "PlayOnMac" (https://www.playonmac.com/) v4.2.6.
Thanks for posting that Claire,
I didn't even know about Playonmac until your post. I'll update the Behold FAQ.
