FSR - Macintosh Operating System

Technote (FAQ)


Does IBM Cognos FSR run on the Apple Macintosh operating system?


The need to run the application on a Macintosh environment.


IBM Cognos FSR has not been tested with the Macintosh Operating Systems and was developed to work with Windows Operating Systems. Therefore it is not supported to run FSR on Mac OS.

As a workaround a virtualization solution that runs on both Windows and Macintosh can be used to provide the application to users that only have access to Mac OS operating systems.
