I can confirm that PAF does work in Crossover for the most part. There are a few minor bugs.

On a side note, Its good to see that there is a community of Mac users in the Church.

Yes PAF 5 works under CrossOver

We will be presenting a review of CrossOver (about the same price as Parallels) in the April issue of macCompanion magazine (I own and publish it) but I found this today -

If you have a MacTel and CodeWeaver's CrossOver, PAF works -

For anyone who might be trying to get PAF to work on an X86-based Macintosh under regular Wine (zero cost), if there are PAF-specific issues, the AppDB page for PAF 5 on Wine is http://appdb.winehq.org/appview.php?iVersionId=1706. I'm a volunteer maintainer of that page, but I use Linux exclusively. If someone who uses Macintosh systems wanted to join as another maintainer, I'm sure that would be a good thing. Thanks to Clinton Stimpson's great efforts, PAF 5 now works under Wine on Linux well enough for basically all practical purposes. It'd be great to get it to that point on Mac as well.

too bad. . . Gedcom

It's too bad this doesn't interface with GEDCOM, perhaps we as a community could contact them and let them know we want GEDCOM. The interface is very pleasing, and the price is very resonable.

Nice Find.

PAF 5 (reportedly) runs on X86 Macs with Wine, X11

I was just informed that PAF 5 works fairly well on X86-based Macs using Wine and the X11 compatibility layer Apple provides. I'm told there are some font issues that are unique to the Mac situation, but I don't know how serious they might be. There is some information now (and maybe more in the future) on the Wine AppDB page: http://appdb.winehq.org/appview.php?iVersionId=1706

It works in Paralels as well (version 2.1 and 3.0) much rather have a native Mac OS application.

PAF with Darwine instructions

I got PAF working on my Intel Mac yesterday using Darwine (free vs. CrossOver) and posted instructions here. I was going to post them in this thread, but it got a bit long.

Another alternative which I use is iFamily for Tiger (and Leopard).

I think their website is http://www.ifamilyfortiger.com

It costs about $30 but seems to be a pretty good app for us Mac people.
