Can Bentley's OpenFlows products (above) be installed on a Mac / Apple computer, or on ChromeOS (such as a Chromebook)?


Per the system requirements, Bentley's OpenFlows products only support the Windows Operating System. One possible option would be to use Windows virtualization, if available. For example for a Mac / Apple computer, you may be able to do it with virtualization software like Parallels or VMWare Fusion. An internet search on 'windows on a mac' can be used for more details. For ChromeOS, you might consider looking for a virtualization ChromeOS App like Citrix Workspace, though we do not officially test or support this workflow. 

If you're only interested in viewing model results, you can export to i-model or Bentley Map Mobile format. See more resources below.
