    **Please Note**
    If you have an earlier version of MAC OS, you will need a valid copy of Windows XP, Vista, 7, or 8 installed using Apple's Bootcamp Assistant. Use of virtualization software like VMWare, Fusion, Parallels, etc is not allowed.

    Bootcamp Assistant is available in the Utilities folder on your Macintosh HD

    Microsoft Windows is not included with the MAC OS or SofTest, it needs to be purchased separately

    Older versions of MAC OS X will require an OS upgrade in order to use Bootcamp and/or SofTest. To check the version of your MAC OS, click the Apple icon on the top left of the screen and then About this MAC.
