    Hey MacRumors!

    I have just bought a macbook pro, and on my older computer - windows-based - i had mathcad, and really relayed on the program in school in order to do my homework. But now I have changed to Apple's computer, and I would like to have mathcad on this computer aswell.
    And ofcourse I have done some research, and found out that there are several applications that allows you to install windows on your mac, and install the windows-based program there. But I would like to install mathcad without this kind of application. I would like to use another kind of application, like WineButtler, so that I don't have to install the WHOLE windows-software on my new beloved macbook, with perfectly running IOS.

    I have already tried WineBottler, and the application it self, runs great, but in order to install mathcad, you need all kinds of windows service-packs, and I can not quiet figure out, how I also install those in WineBottler, in order to install mathcad, the way I intended.

    Any help or suggestions?
    Thank you in advance!
    - Frank the beloved macbook user! :)

    Wrong comparison, show me how will you calculate and simulate alternate current frequency with mathematica?
    On mathcad simply you can put valors as a variable and you can so graficaly with manual scalability see the frequency band behavior...

    Not sure if you resolved this but you might want to try Crossover which takes care of all of the windows files you need to run Wine. I have not tried it with Mathcad but it has worked will all the windows software I am using.
