Hello everyone, hopefully I am in the right place... I am posting for a friend of mine, who is not so tech-savvy. I am, but I do not have a Mac, which makes things complicated, but here we go. My friend is taking a class which requires the use of Visual Studio 2005 for C++ programming. It's just for a few months, but it will be a lot of work for those few months. The issue is, she has a Mac, and the program is not compatible with Mac. I have heard of programs like Parallels, VMX fusion, Bootcamp, etc., but I do not know what these programs do, or how they function. Parallels looks like a good option, but I would assume she would also have to buy a version of Windows of somewhere to load onto her Mac. So finally, my question is, what is the easiest, and most inexpensive way to use Visual Studio on a Mac, and please explain how. Thanks very much in advance to anyone who can help.
