SAN FRANCISCO--(BUSINESS WIRE)--NES Software today announced a major performance overhaul for WinOnX, the application that lets Apple Macintosh computers run Microsoft Windows software quickly, easily and affordably. Now, WinOnX users can run more Windows applications, more effectively than ever before. WinOnX 1.5 is available for $4.99 in Apple’s Mac App Store via http://www.winonx.com.
The latest version of WinOnX features:
- Greatly enhanced compatibility to run 80 percent of Windows apps
- Encrypted data transfer improvements
- Improved 3D display with OS-X 10.7.5 and 10.8.2
- Better support for filenames with non-ASCII characters
- Improved handling of LNK Windows files
- Better error handling and reporting
“Mac users have made WinOnX one of the Mac App Store’s top 10 best-selling productivity apps of all time,” said Hisham El-Emam, CEO of NES Software. “In response, we’re giving our users better performance and broader support for even more Windows apps. And for Windows apps we don’t yet run, we now provide detailed information on what went wrong and, in many cases, how to fix it.”
WinOnX takes just minutes to download and install and then lets Mac users run compatible Windows applications by double-clicking an application’s icon. Alternative solutions, meanwhile, require that users purchase and install a copy of Microsoft Windows — and virtualization software if they want to run Windows apps and Mac apps at the same time.
WinOnX requires Apple Macintosh OS X 10.6 (Snow Leopard) or later and at least 400 MB of free disk space to install.
