When can we expect a Mac version, we have a large archive of genopro trees from our different families but have changed from Windows to Mac and are unable to transfer the genopro data. We on;t want to lose these data. How can we handle this in the meanwhile?

We are building GenoProX which is working on Windows, Mac and Linux.  We hope to have a prototype in 6 months.

I am tempted to change to mac for the image treatment software and lack of viruses, but will also need to be able to use GenoPro which is my most important software and is irreplaceable.

I have had success using it with WineBottler / Wine on Mac, but I understand for many users it can be a painful, buggy process. I appreciate how much GenoPro devs have been willing to work with us and release modified / updated versions that are more compatible with CrossOver or Wine.

I work in customer support for an organization whose users sometimes use GenoPro and we run into this issue a lot with customers that are Mac-only households. They are typically not tech-savvy which can make these processes difficult.

There is an option in Wine / Winebotter where you can package it all into a single app file. Basically a standalone "app" of GenoPro for Mac that has Wine built into it. It bloats the file to maybe 400MB, so that's the main downside, but it seems to work for the most part.

If this is tested and found to be generally working most of the time on most Macs, then having this pre-built wine-included "app" file for download by users would be great. Especially since it licenses on-launch not on-install, so users would still have to go through the normal licensing process the first time they launch the app. I have tested this on my own Mac at home, but of course, can't distribute the file to anyone, likely, for licensing/EULA reasons (I think wine is okay to redistribute though). Which is why I would hope maybe GenoPro would consider this a possible intermediate solution to the problem. Though, it could very well end up being too buggy.

Just been trying to find a user-friendly way to help users that need GenoPro on a mac without having to ask them to purchase both Fusion/Parallels and a copy of Windows.

Sounds like GenoPro X will solve this issue once and for all, just a bit of a wait to see that day come Smile

Thank you for your feedback.  We are building GenoProX with the Qt framework which is portable to many platforms.

I too would love to have GenoPro for Mac as well. I use both Mac and PC but really would love to be able to switch to Mac. Since this was six years ago, I am wondering if the Mac version ever was initiated or unable to happen?
