Default Macbook Vs Real flight simulator

HI all :-)
I got an original Realflight 4.5 simulator. I bought a macbook pro and it seems the program simply doesnt work on it. Any idea or solution?
thanks to all who reply!

You would have to run boot camp and run a version of windows on the mac, and then Realflight it should work. Real Flight is not native to mac.

Real Flight runs Great on a Mac. Google "Boot Camp requirements" and you will get all the info you need.

I have run RealFlight from version 3.5 to 5.5 on my iMac through Parallels and it works great. I have bootcamp on my Mackbook but it needs to boot up windows all the time. In Parallels you can suspend your windows session when you are done so when you open it back up it starts right up.

Parallels is great, I use it too. With that you just have to know that it splits system resources between your Mac OS and Windows so simulator performance may suffer depending on your settings and hardware.
