    Hi,

    I have Mac-OS installed in a VMware to test whether the locale-B4iBuild-server works well.
    To my surprise, I can now say that it works very well, the compilation time is acceptable.

    If I had known that at the beginning, I would have saved the money for a Mac-Mini.

    Is this a big project that you compiled?

    Also if I had known....

    Is it very difficult to set-up the mac-os with VMware?

    You can find ready to use VMware images with MacOS for download. But VMware Workstation must be patched to boot the virtual Mac correctly, search for Unlocker 2.08.

    The most important question, the computer which version of Windows, processor and Ram has?

    The Windows version shouldn't be important if it is Win7+ and 64bit. Processor must be Intel imho. Ram should be 8 GB as minimum i think, but more is better.

    I had I3 with Windows 8.1 and 8Gb of ram and it worked badly. The mouse itself moved with difficulty


    PS. Sell your Mac? :p:p

    I do not know if it's big for you, for me already.

    I use it with (very) old I7 on Win7/12GB and Win10/24GB. I use only 3GB in the Mac VM and it runs fine without problems, no lags.
    Which VMware version did you use? I'm using VMware 12 which has good performance in combination with Mac VM. My previously used VMware 11 runs much slower with Mac VM and VMware 10 before runs terrible.

    Now nothing. I bought an SSD and I decided not to put Windows 8.1 64bit but Windows 7 64bit.
    To install W7 I had to set up the Motherboard as a BIOS instead of UEFI and then it turned off the 'hardware support for virtualization'.
    What is necessary to make WMware (or even DropBox) operate an emulator with MacOS.

    I should reformat everything, but I have no intention of doing it, rather I buy the miniMac of @Filippo :p:p

    I meant code size.

    I use remote builder an it usually needs a few seconds after using a clean for my games.
    And it's almost instant when the app was already running.

    Active hardware support for virtualization is a must.

    I understand that you can compile iOS apps in development but you can´t use Vmware Virtual Mac for sign the app to upload to apple store your app

    What you write is totally wrong, because it works flawlessly!
