    Simulator program
    The RC airplane magazine "Model Aviation" has a quote that the Simulator Program for RC flight which is designed for a PC, can be installed on a Mac if it has the new duo-core processors and Leopard and up.

    I have a new mac book pro with the Ghz intel Core i5, and Lion.
    I guess my question is the Intel Core i5 a "duo core" and if so why might i be having problems installing the simulator Program.

    G'day and welcome to the forums.

    Others may provide more information, but think you may have to run it under Bootcamp as most simulators require DirectX 9 or later.

    Hang on to those original install discs like grim death! Using OS X.7 or later make a bootable USB thumb drive before running Installer!

    First tell us the name of the program... If it's a Windows program (such as RCSimulator.exe) you can not run it directly from your Mac. As Harry points out, you would first have to install Windows on your Mac.

    Or use a Virtual Machine in which to run Windows--Parallels or VMWare are two examples.
