Which Virtual Environments does Norgate Data work with?

All of Norgate's programs are designed to work in a Windows environment. A Windows environment may be emulated on other platforms (such as Mac or Linux) using virtualization software. These effectively run a fully-functional Windows environment, which for all intents and purposes have no functional differences between that and a normal environment. However, some virtualization environments do perform

Norgate Data has tried VMWare, Hyper-V and VirtualBox environments and found no issues using Windows as a host. Other users have reported success with VMWare Fusion and Parallels on a Mac.

Unresolvable issues exist with WINE on Linux in various charting/analysis programs, so this environment is not recommended or supported.

Should I use Dynamic Resolution or Full Screen Mode?

It is recommended that you use Full-Screen mode.

I can't select multiple items holding down the CTRL key - how do I resolve this?

Some virtual environments map keyboards differently. One user has reported that he had to hold down both CTRL and OPTION on a Mac in VMWare Fusion to select multiple items.
