No it's not, unfortunately. Some have used Windows emulation, but I'm not sure how well it works with that.

SleepyHead has a Mac version though. Link is at the top of every forum page. And most folks like it better than ResScan anyway - it works well with S9 (and many other) machines.

No it's not, unfortunately. Some have used Windows emulation, but I'm not sure how well it works with that.

I've tried using ResScan with the S8 data card reader in a virtual machine (a trial copy of Parallels on my Mac). It worked just fine, but I ended up using Bootcamp instead. I didn't want to pay the licensing fee for Parallels because none of my Windows games were compatible with Parallels.

The Mac's internal SD card reader is not compatible with Parallels, so you will need a USB SD card reader to download your data (if your machine is something other than an S8).

I installed ResScan v5.3 on Parallels/Mac that is running WINDOZE XP. Software is running [knock on wood] beautifully so far. Saving .pdf reports back into the Mac universe is working well. All good.

Have not installed v5.4 yet.
