However...you could use Virtual Box (free) to install a Windows flavor on your Mac. If you're not familiar with virtual machines, it might be a bit complicated. But if you do get it working, LRO should work just fine in a virtual Windows environment. I would just recommend regularly backing up LRO to a removable disk (such as a flash drive).
LRO was designed and tested solely on Windows. It has some components that will fail if it is not run a pure Windows environment. Therefore, emulators will probably not work. However, you could create such a pure Windows environment on a Linux machine by using Virtual Box.
If you use LRO in a Virtual Box environment, just be sure to backup often. If your computer crashes...recovering files from a virtual machine is much more difficult.
However, you can have the 64-bit version of Microsoft Office installed, and yet have a 32-bit version of Access. You will simply need to remove the 64-bit version of Access (if installed) and then install the 2000 Run-Time version of Access from this link.
- Can I add items manually to the Literature Items List?
However, it would be better to contact me to let me know about an item that is missing (or that needs correction) so that I can make this update for everyone. To contact me, please see the "Contact Me" link at the top of this website.
However, be careful about deleting items from previous months. You may encounter unexpected results...
Please note that you cannot make changes to LRO on both computers at the same time. If you make changes on one, you must restore it to the other computer before editing LRO on the other computer.
This will check to see if you have Microsoft Access installed, and if you do not, it will offer to download and install it for you. If you have any further difficulties, please contact me for support (link is at the top of this site).
NOTE: Vista & Windows 7 users may see a "This program may not have installed correctly" message after running this tool. If you see this, just close it. This tool doesn't install anything, unless you are missing Microsoft Access...
