Hello all,

I just got my MacBook Pro and am figuring everything out. I have some software that is Windows only that I need to install. After I have loaded Windows using Bootcamp, can I just install the programs like I would on any other Windows computer?

Thanks!

Windows has been installed to the machine much like if you did it on a non-Apple machine. When booted into Windows, you can therefore do what you would on any other PC.

Thanks. That is what I thought, but I wanted to be totally sure before buying everything.

I am getting excited to get rolling with both on the same machine!
