Not working with any windows program I use on Parallels. Elster tax program for example. Tried on Mac Pro 3.0, Macbook 2.0, Macbook Pro 2.4, Mac OS 10.6.8 and 10.6.9. Would give 0 stars if possible. Don't waste zour time and money!

Tried this and it does not work even with a simple bookkeepingprogramm which flawlessly works using Parallels, Fusion or Virtual Box.

There is no mailadres of developer. Problems can be sent to him from within the app only but he does not respond. So useless.


Stay away far from it. Money thrown to the pigs.

I'm not the dev, however, right at the bottom of his web page is a link 'Feedback' where you can write to him.

Of course, you won't be able to run any app - it's based on Wine! Comparing Parallels, Fusion or VB to this is like comparing an airplane to a bus. I bet your simple program uses .NET, which you need to install into any Wine-based app manually, so that's why it probably wouldn't work.

1. Originally there was no link whatsoever.Just like there was no (working) link in the appstore. Only way to contact him was from within the app.

2. Your assumption (.net) is false!
There are currently no troubleshooting comments. If you are experiencing a problem with this app, please post a comment.

Please note:
  • WinOnX should only be used for applications which are not available for OS X. Whenever an application is available for OS X, we strongly recommend to use this version.
  • WinOnX is based on the open source Wine project. It is a layer which redirects the communication between an application and Windows to OS X. As a result not all applications are fully compatible. Most applications run fine, some run even faster but also some run slower or even crash.
    You can look at http://appdb.winehq.org/ to get some information how good your application might work with WinOnX which is an ongoing project. In case your Windows application does not work at the moment, there is a good chance that it will work after one of the next updates.
  • Currently full screen applications (especially games) are only limited supported. We are currently working on a version which will support both full screen for Snow Leopard as well as for Lion.
