Question about Computers & Internet

4 Answers

We have customized a software program for our company that is based on sy-base SQL and powerbuilder on windows machines. We now are thinking to convert to Mac OS. -Is it possible and cheap to do (regardless the price of the mac machines)? - what do we need to install on the mac machines? - Will the programmer need to alter the original program? or will install straight on the mac system? - Who is best to helps performing that task (names and numbers of companies)?

    The software is designed to calculate calories in meals for our costumers. It really does a lot of things regarding the delivery list and address of costumers, ingredients of every meal used, set menus of different types e.g vegetarians, sea food, lactating women.. etc.

    It actually fairly complicated in what it does and its not easy to explain exactly what it does because it involves to many coordination and listings and calculations.

    I hope this answers your Question.

  • yousefhym Feb 19, 2009

Whatkind of form is the program on now? is it a executeable file that you run on your windows?

If the program requires the sql program and powerbuilder to work, then possibly it might work on the mac with those programs installed.

but you haven't really told us much about the program.

if the program is written for windows and is in windows executeable form. Then you would either need a emulator or use bootcamp on the mac to run the windows program
http://www.apple.com/macosx/features/bootcamp.html

if the program is something that is run out of those two programs then it should work just by installing the programs.

Could you ask the programmer that wrote the program? I'm sure he or she would know alot more about it than people who have no idea whatkind of program you have there.

If it was Windows based it was setup to install into the windows directories. Although I'm not as familiar in this field I'm fairly certain you will have to alter quite a bit for the software you customized to work and actually run on a Macintosh.

Sorry, I don't know of anyone who could help you make the migration or suggest using particular methods to make the transition simple.

    No, it won't work out-of-the-box. Windows programs are not compatible with a Macintosh Operating System. The program or software you customized will have to be re-programmed to work properly with the Macintosh.

You will need to install the program on it through the software d.as it will not get automatically installed.

What is the software package ? Give details about the software details .

Posted on Feb 19, 2009

  • SAM ANDERSON Feb 19, 2009

    First of all it requires lot of process to make your program to run on Mac os . The cost involved is more in this process of conversion . The programmer should reprogram the software to make it compatible to Mac os . It is bit difficult task to do reprogramming . It is not cost effective too. Even if it is reprogrammed you need to check the working of the software and check for any errors produced.
    You need to install interface component n your machine to support SQl.
    Can you provide location so that i can find someone in your area to give you the details about the cost involved in entire process.


  • SAM ANDERSON Feb 20, 2009

    Sorry to say it wont work on mac by just installing the sybase and power builder software. Reprogramming is required.

When I set up and print a DVD disk cover the printed cover is off centred to the stick on paper. Please advise how can I line up the proposed print disk with the paper in the printer? Regards Bob Moore


I received your reply yesterday. I noticed a charge to fix my problem. I am a sceptic and once a company asks for money to fix a problem from THEIR program it means one of two things 1. The company has no confidence in their product as being servicable and are proud to service a customer or 2. The company makes sure there are problems within the program so the customer has to pay additional monies to sort out the problem from the company.

I will use your program to burn my CD or DVD and will look at an alternative program that will offer support to help me to be able to print the my covers.

Now you have asked how did I fix the problem. I have a base sheet and lift off the unprinted disk and relocate them onto the base sheet and then print them. Antiquated, however it works. You want me to show you how to fix your problem in the program?? I don't think so.
Regards

Windows base software


The PalmTX comes with the Palm operating system (Palm OS Garnet 5.4) and does not run Windows software. To run programs that you run on your Windows computer you would need a Windows Mobile device. However, there are MANY free and low cost programs out there for your Palm. Try PalmFreeware.com to get yourself started. You can also check out sites like ePinions.com and C|Net.com for reviews of Palm software that you're thinking about purchasing.
