The E 16 machine and software are not designed to work natively with Apple/Mac computers. The recommended installation is on a Windows operating system. Installation of E 16 hardware and software on virtual Windows platforms have had varied results. BERNINA does not provide technical support on these platforms, but customer feedback is available here:
- There have been reports of successful installations running Windows through Boot Camp on Apple/Mac computers.
- Parallels may not provide Windows Ethernet or USB Security Dongle support on startup. It may require manual activation each time it is launched.
- VMWare Fusion is another method of running Windows on Apple/Mac systems.
Questions or issues using any of the above platforms should be directed to the Technical Support services at those respective companies.
