How can i use both Windows and Mac os at the same time on my iMac

How can i use both Windows and Mac os at the same time on my iMac

You can use Parallels desktop or VM Fusion to run both operating systems at the same time. Both programs work well, but I personally perfer VM Fusion.

  • Can i use both windows and OS X in the same hardisk

    I want to install windows 7 ultimate(64 bit) on imac but if i install it can i use both OS X and windows in the same hardisk or do i have to plug in an external hardisk and can i still use OS X or only apple??

    Welcome to Apple Support Communities
    Of course. You can install Windows and OS X in the same hard drive, because that's the purpose of Boot Camp.
    I see you are using OS X Mavericks, so you can install Windows 7 or 8 in Boot Camp > http://support.apple.com/kb/HT5634?viewlocale=en_US Then, follow these steps to install Windows > http://manuals.info.apple.com/MANUALS/1000/MA1636/en_US/boot_camp_install-setup_ 10.8.pdf
    After installing Windows, your Mac will start up in Windows by default. In order to choose in which operating system you want to start up, just hold the Option (Alt) key while your computer is starting up.
    If you do not want to do heavy tasks in Windows, another option you should consider is to install Windows in a virtual machine with the use of an app like VMware Fusion, VirtualBox or Parallels. This way is more secure and there's no risk to harm your Mac.

  • How can I do to acquire and save date in the same time and in the same file when I run continual my VI without interrupti​on.

    I've attached a VI that I am using to acquire amplitude from Spectrum analyzerse. I tried to connect amplitude ouput to the VI Write Characters To File.vi and Write to Spreadsheet File.vi. Unfortunately when I run continual this VI without interruption, labview ask me many time to enter a new file name to save a new value.
    So, How can I do to aquire and save date in the same time and in the same file when I run continual my VI for example during 10 min.
    Thank you in advance.

    Hi,
    Your VI does work perfectly. Unfortunately this not what I want to do. I've made error in my last comment. I am so sorry for this.
    So I explain to you again what I want to do exactly. I want to acquire amplitude along road by my vehicle. I want to use wheel signal coming from vehicle to measure distance along road. Then I acquire 1 amplitude each 60 inches from spectrum analyzer.
    I acquire from PC parallel port a coded wheel signal coming from vehicle (each period of the signal corresponds to 12 Inches). Figure attached shows the numeric signal coming from vehicle, and the corresponding values “120” and “88” that I can read from In Port vi.
    So I want to acquire 1 time amplitude from spectrum analyser each 5
    period of the signal that I am acquiring from parallel port.
    So fist I have to find how can I count the number of period from reading the values “120” and “88” that I am acquiring from In Port (I don’t know the way to count a number of period from reading values “120” and “88”).
    Here is a new algorithm.
    1) i=0 (counter: number of period)
    2) I read value from In Port
    3) If I acquire a period
    i= i+1 (another period)
    4) If i is multiple of 5 (If I read 5 period)
    acquire 1 time amplitude and write to the same
    file this amplitude and the corresponding distance
    Distance = 12*i). Remember each period of signal
    Corresponds to 12 Inches).i has to take these
    values: 5,10,15,20,25,35,40,45,50,55,60............
    5) Back to 2 if not stop.
    Thank you very much for helping me.

  • How can I connect to Oracle and SQL server at the same time?

    I have been trying to find a way to connect to Oracle Database through the developer 2000 and SQL server at the same time. I need to return some data from Oracle Database and some from the Sql Server Database. And update both through SQL. I find there is such a thing as the Oracle Transparent Gateway for SQL server. I can't find it on any of my CD's or through OTN downloadable files. If anyone can point me where to get this. Or tell of another way this can be accomplished I would appreciate it. TIA.

    As far as I know you have 3 options depending on your specifications. I don't think option #3 will work if you need to actually join a
    SQL Server table to an Oracle table.
    1. Oracle Transparent Gateway. I haven't used the Oracle Transparent Gateway but my understanding is that Oracle gateways are
    separate purchased products from Oracle. I've never seen any free/development versions of it anywhere. You'll need to contact
    your Oracle sales rep about it.
    2. Heterogeneous Connectivity. There's something called Heterogeneous Connectivity that could work for you - depends on what
    version of Oracle you're on and what OS. You basically set up an ODBC data source on the Oracle server and modify the listener.ora
    and tnsnames.ora files. You can then create a database link to SQL Server just like you would to any other Oracle database. You can
    check your Oracle documentation for how this works. There's also some very good documents on Metalink that tell you how to do this
    as well as a Heterogeneous Connectivity forum on this site.
    3. Use the exec_sql package available in Developer 2000. This allows you to open and execute cursors to remote databases within
    Developer. We have an account validation process that uses this - when a person enters an account number in a form while logged
    into Oracle it validates the account is valid in our main accounting DB2 database. We also pull HR information from DB2 into Oracle
    this way. If you're using Forms 6i exec_sql is a built-in command, in Forms 5.0 and 5.5 you have to add it as an attached library to
    the form. I think you also need the OCA options installed from the Developer software to have access to the library in Forms 5.0 and
    5.5. The library will be in the $ORACLE_HOME\oca20\plsqllib directory for these versions. The Developer documentation should have
    additional information.

  • HT3562 A lot of people are bilinguals living in the USA. How can I use both English and Cantonese in all the apps

    In the USA, there are a lot of bilinguals. Being Chinese and live in the USA, there are millions of people speak both English and Cantonese. There are no way in the OS that I can set it up to recognize both at the same time. I have added the international keyboard of English and Chinese. The default for Chinese Voice command when I switch from English. There is no way in OS that I can link the Chinese input in Keyborad Language to Cantonese. All the default of Keyboard input are link to Madarin.
    Apple should make the change in the next OS that can link a keyboard language to different dialect for Chinese Language

  • How can I record a microphone and software instrument at the same time in Garageband 10.0.1?  It seems I can record one or the other, but not both at the same time?

    I am trying to record a vocal mic and a keyboard (using a software instrument) at the same time using Garageband 10.0.1.  It seems that I can't record the mic input and the software instrument at the same time.  I can record the mic input by itself, and I can record the software instrument by itself (if I don't have a mic input track created), but I can't record them together.
    It seems like this should be an obvious thing to be able to do, but I can't figure out how to make it work.
    Can someone help?
    Thanks,

  • Can I use a usb and wireless keyboard at the same time on a mac pro

    I wish to use the Mac Pro USB keyboard for Logic shortcuts and the Mac Pro wireless keyboard for normal typing etc. Is this possible?

    Just as Matt has said, the Mac uses "all devices active" philosophy with keyboards and pointing devices. It does not automatically Switch to a later-installed device, it uses them ALL at the same time by default.

  • How can I have a canvas and external controls at the same time?

    Typically all the space of an applet is used for 2D or 3D; that is, the applet provides the canvas. I am trying to develop an applet where I only want to use part of the applet space for 3D, and then, outside that space (but still within the applet) I would like to add some controls (e.g. buttons or text fields) to provide some interaction. In other words, I want to have an applet that contains something like a frame for 3D, and some controls outside the frame.
    It may be quite easy, but I am very new to applets. Can anyone kindly give me some suggestions? Any help is highly appreciated!

  • Can I have both V6 and V5 loaded at the same time?

    I am going to keep V6 but would like to reload V5.
    Is this possible running both versions? When updates for V6 are available I would like to give them a try. But for the time being almost all of my iMovie videos have Gee Slick transitions. Many crash V6 or just turn black and will not render. If it is possible to run both versions I would like to know if there are any pit falls I should look out for.
    PowerPC G4 Dual1.42 GHz   Mac OS X (10.4.4)   2 GB DDR SDRAM

    Yes, there are several posts here about how to do this. Very quickly . .
    If you have already install v6, you will have to remove it.
    Then, install v5 and rename the app, so v6 will not write over it.
    Now reinstall v6.

  • Using both WiFi and GPRS (not at the same time!)

    When at home I want my E71 to use the WiFi, probably also when available in hotels etc. but otherwise I want to use the GPRS data conenction. There doesn't seem to be any easy way to set things up so that the E71 uses the 'best' connection.
    Am I missing something or do I always have to select the connection method manually?

    Your not missing anything, its not there. If you want to change the connection an application uses you need to do it manually each time.
    The other option is to load an application such as this one.

  • Running windows and OS 10 at the same time.

    I am going to order a new iMac.  I want to be able to have windows and Mac running at the same time.  I will be using two monitors.  My question is would I be better to order more ram, or the fastest processor to optimize the performance?  My brother has a mac book pro running parallels, he says that it works or but is quite slow.  Any help before I order my new iMac would be appreciated.

    More RAM would speed things up more when handeling multiple applications at the same time.

    Windows on Intel Macs
    There are presently several alternatives for running Windows on Intel Macs.
    Install the Apple Boot Camp software.  Purchase Windows XP w/Service Pak2, Vista, or Windows 7.  Follow instructions in the Boot Camp documentation on installation of Boot Camp, creating Driver CD, and installing Windows.  Boot Camp enables you to boot the computer into OS X or Windows.
    Parallels Desktop for Mac and Windows XP, Vista Business, Vista Ultimate, or Windows 7.  Parallels is software virtualization that enables running Windows concurrently with OS X.
    VM Fusionand Windows XP, Vista Business, Vista Ultimate, or Windows 7.  VM Fusion is software virtualization that enables running Windows concurrently with OS X.
    CrossOver which enables running many Windows applications without having to install Windows.  The Windows applications can run concurrently with OS X.
    VirtualBox is a new Open Source freeware virtual machine such as VM Fusion and Parallels that was developed by Solaris.  It is not as fully developed for the Mac as Parallels and VM Fusion.
    Note that Parallels and VM Fusion can also run other operating systems such as Linux, Unix, OS/2, Solaris, etc.  There are performance differences between dual-boot systems and virtualization.  The latter tend to be a little slower (not much) and do not provide the video performance of the dual-boot system. See MacTech.com's Virtualization Benchmarking for comparisons of Boot Camp, Parallels, and VM Fusion. Boot Camp is only available with Leopard or Snow Leopard. Except for Crossover and a couple of similar alternatives like DarWine you must have a valid installer disc for Windows.

    How can I use both, Windows PC and iMac, when using WiFi?. It is either-or. What can I do?

    What does this have to do with using an iPad?
    But yes, you should be able to connect to your home WiFi network with multiple computers and devices. In my house my wife, my daughter and I will all be using the WiFi Internet connection at the same time with our Laptops and I will also be using my iPad, my daughter uses her iPhone, and we have no issues at all.

    No - you can share the same iTunes account (my wife and I share the same account). But when you sync the iPads, just remember to select the correct content for her iPad and the correct content for your iPad.

    How can I use FaceTime between 2 I-Pads sharing the same email address

    Cstearns-
    I only have one iPad, but was able to add myself to the list of Favorites.  When I tried to call, I was not available!
    You should also take a look at the Skype App for iPhone.  It works on the iPad, where you can choose 2X to expand the display.  I haven't tried to add myself to Skype, but have been able to have it connected on both my computer and the iPad at the same time.
    You might also consider getting a second address from G-Mail, just for use with FaceTime.
