Haathi Carnatic Editor – Frequently Asked Questions
1. How can I create a PDF file of my notation document?
2. Can I run the Windows software on the Mac?
Software from us, such as Haathi Carnatic Editor and Haathi MediaMark only work on Windows. They do not natively run on a Mac. If you don’t have a PC, your options are:
Option 1: If you have a powerful enough Mac, you can run Windows on the Mac alongside the Mac OS & Mac applications. This is done using a virtualization software called Parallels, which lets you run the entire Windows operating system inside a window in the Mac (and of course also as a full screen application). You need to buy Parallels and you also need to buy a Windows license. Then you install the Windows operating system as a virtual machine using Parallels. Then you can install the Haathi software (or any other Windows software you wish) onto that installation of Windows, like you would do on a standard Windows PC.
Option 2: This option is same as the first option, except you can use the free virtualization software called VirtualBox. You basically save yourselves the cost of the Parallels software by using the free virtualization software.
Option 3: Sign up for an Amazon Workspaces account and rent a Windows PC on the cloud. Or do a Google search for “cloud windows desktop” or “virtual windows desktop” and choose one of the many alternative options for cloud desktops. Then, install Haathi software on your cloud PC.
Option 4: Buy a low end PC. Often a low end Windows PC costing in the $350 to $400 range will meet your needs for software like Haathi Carnatic Editor and Haathi MediaMark.
