    Hi.
    I need to install Windows to run a program for school that isn't supported by Mac OS X. Trouble is I can't figure out if VMWare Fusion or Parallels would accomplish this, or if they rely on a Windows installation on a different computer? I'm using a 2011 MBP, and all I really want is to be able to run these Windows-only programs as painlessly and easily as possible..
    BootCamp seems like a bit of a bother; alternatively, isn't there any emulator software which would solve the problem?
    In case it matters, the software is called SAP Business One

    I only just bought a Mac today, and as of yet it's all quite overwhelming - any help will be greatly appreciated!

    Thanks in advance.

    There are two other products as well. VirtualBox and VMWare Fusion.
