IES Opens Virtual Environment Building Analysis Software to Macs via Virtualization Software and Apple Boot Camp
Integrated Environmental Solutions (IES), a provider of integrated performance analysis software for sustainable building design, today announced that VMware Fusion and Parallels Desktop are the preferred virtualization software for Mac installations. IES now offers full technical support for <Virtual Environment> installations within Apple Mac environments which use VMware Fusion, Parallels Desktop or the Boot Camp utility included within the latest Mac OS X.

The IES <Virtual Environment> suite of Windows-only products – VE-Ware, VE-Toolkits, VE-Gaia and VE-Pro – can now be installed and run on Apple Macs, and be eligible for full IES technical support. VMware Fusion and Parallels create a ‘Virtual Machine’ (VM) on which a secondary Windows operating systems can be run. It allows you to run the most demanding Mac and Windows applications side-by-side at maximum speeds without rebooting. Alternatively, Boot Camp allows users to boot up their Mac using a Windows operating system, but does not allow simultaneous access to Mac applications.

“With the development of our plug-in to Google SketchUp and the expansion of our products to include more early design stage tools aimed at architects, interoperability with Macs is becoming increasingly important to our customers,” commented Dr. Don McLean, Founder and Managing Director of IES. “I’m delighted that the <Virtual Environment> has now been successfully tested and proven to work on VM Fusion and Parallels virtualization, as well as Boot Camp installations.”

The IES <Virtual Environment> integrated suite of building performance software supports energy analysis, energy load calculation, CO2 emission calculation, solar shading analysis, natural ventilation analysis, and much more – providing a very useful and effective approach to green building design and development. IES’ services and products aid significantly in the provision of healthier and more energy efficient built environments.

For detailed instructions and guidance on installations of IES VE on Macs please visit our website at www.iesve.com/mac, or contact support@iesve.com. IES has also produced a supporting video which shows how to export files from a Mac SketchUp installation into its software using Parallels. It is available to view at http://www.youtube.com/user/IESVE.
