Vabi Elements on a Mac

Vabi Elements is only available for the Windows operating system. Do you for example have an Apple Mac, then you can use Vabi Elements through a virtual Windows environment such as: VMWare, Parallels Desktop or similar. There are, however, a number of details to keep in mind:

  • Make sure that all the required Windows components are available and install them beforehand, e.g. C++ x64 redistributable packages.
  • Make sure the virtual environment has enough RAM, CPU and GPU, and is not limited by the system settings.
  • For Parallels; Make sure that it has access to the whole system through: System preferences → Security & Privacy → Privacy → Full disk access → Add Parallels by clicking the + sign. Hereafter, install the Parallels tools.
  • If you have problems with the Geometry in Parallels, e.g. black surfaces or no display at all, make sure the following bootflag is added to the Virtual Machine configuration: video.gl3 = 0. Go to Configuration → Hardware → Boot order and click on the Advanced settings. Add the bootflag here in the white box.
  • For other problems with Parallels you can contact Parallels Support or you can visit the Parallels Forum.
