Internet explore for mac port to work on OSX?

Community of appple Hello.

I would like to know if there is a direct way for internet explore for mac works. Safari isn't really what if all I need to work and want to switch to IE now that I bought a new macbook air. I found this resource online, but not sure if it works to make ie work for mac.

Please advise me. what you guys done for internet explore works on your mac osx computers?


The only way to use IE on a Mac is either:

1. use a virtual machine environment (VMware Fusion, Parallels Desktop, etc.) and install Windows

in the virtual machine.

2 install Windows on Mac via Bootcamp in a dual-boot configuration.

3 use something like Crossover Mac by Codeweavers.  Although only limited versions of the work of EI

and not necessarily all that great.

4 an alternative to IE which is no longer supported, even by Microsoft because they are moving to

their new edge browser.

    I just bought 14 elements Photoshop and Photoshop first 14 for Mac (I have an iMac OSX) and downloaded and received periodic publications related to them. But try to install it after you type the serial number, I get the message that Adobe is unable to validate the serial number.

    (1) right click on the Finder on dock icon and select the option "Go - To Folder."
    (2) you will get a text box, type in below mentioned command and then press 'return '.

    / etc

    (3) it will open the etc folder, look for file named "hosts" and the same screenshot of office.

    (4) double click on the Hosts file, it will open it with TextEdit.

    Let me know if you see any Adobe related as entries in the Hosts file etc?

  • Anti-virus/Internet security for Mac software?

    Thoughts about whether Anti Virus/Internet security software is necessary for Mac computers?  How about a new college student?

    If so any recommendations on which one to use?

    Thank you


    You do not have anti virus for Mac.   Review carefully on known sites and you should have no trouble.   Don't download questionable sites (Cnet, MacKeeper and similar).   If you are unsure about a site, ask here in the forums.

  • AutoUpdate for Office 2011 for MAC does not work

    2011 26 "IMAC

    OSX 10.7.5

    2.7 GHZ Intel Core I5

    4 GHz 1333 mhz DDR

    I just rebooted / cntrl R and ERASED the disc

    Reinstalled OSX and "software-update" all the software needed for Mac successfully

    BUT, after I installed my Office for Mac 2011 student / home edition successfully.

    entered my code produced and opened with success of Word and Excel documents

    then I tried 'auto-update' Office for MAC via their "help / check the drop-down list updates.

    Set TI to update several times...

    BUT, then got into a loop trying to install "Microsoft Autoupdate 2.3.6 critical 10/19/12.

    He said... Download the update very quickly (hard to read)

    then he said... .checking for updates again

    AND the same automatic update 2.3.6 appears as needing to be installed

    I keep hitting install it... and same repetitive steps keep occurring...

    LAST loaded version said 14.0.0


    Note: searched the Internet and some sites from microsoft... but none has seemed relevant for my version

    Thank you, Mark

    I found the solution on the site:

    Just look for the thread titled

    "Microsoft for Mac 2011 auto update stuck in the cycle of the strange"

    Problem is that your Installer is coming from a DVD player that has the older version of the installer.

    Therefore, follow the instructions on the thread (there are several options available).

    I solved my problem by going to the Microsoft Web site and download Office 14.6.3

    directly from their site < -.

    Thanks to all of you who have read my thread.

  • Windows Live Mesh for Mac does not work with Mac OS 10.7 Lion

    Maybe someone could help me with this.

    • I migrated to a disk hard again and update of Snow Leopard Lion this week
    • Live Mesh has stopped working so I downloaded the most recent distribution of MS: 15.4.5726.23, 20/07/2011 release date, which says it's for Mac, including the last OS 10.7 Lion as well.
    • It loads, wait, does nothing (the choice of unique to Quit or help menu, and then it ends after about 30 seconds, the LiveAgent not appearing.)
    • I made sure the application has access through the firewall Mac and use the stealth mode.  With stealth enabled, there are messages from the console: Live Agent is listening to proto = 6 AND Live Agent is listening to: ffff: proto = 6 AND the first msg repeats.    I also disabled the firewall to test without effect if LiveAgent fails to load. Firewall of variants: with the firewall on, LiveAgent just sits with console messages above until the user clicks on the icon status agent and it then goes to the waiting interminable spinner; with the firewall off, it goes to spinner in less than 15 seconds spontaneously with the GSM, but two sets of their pop up.
    • I repeated a deinstall [app and files] / refresh-download/install process three times and got the same results.
    • In the Finder, and LaunchPad, the icon is displayed normally.
    • I reinstalled the previous version [15.4.5722.2] and the LiveAgent charges, but never decided and just hangs.
    • After doing this and made a fourth installation 15.4.5726.23, 20/07/2011, it now loads the agent but is still suspended as the previous version.
    • If after that, I have now the LiveAgent treat during initialization, but never finished.  It remains active for approximately 8 MB of RAM, but no cycles CPU are used
    • My sync folders are orphans of their source computer, although they always synchronize with my Win7 laptop.
    • I dug a little deeper trying to solve this problem.  I get the following error message if I dig in the 15.4.5726.23 app and run the executable manually:

    aarc01: ~ $ Applications/richard/Windows\ Live\\ Live\ mesh; "exit";

    Exception thrown:

    I've seen this behaviour before with v.15.4.5722.2, about 4-5 months ago, but I do not remember what was the solution that solved.

    Can anyone out there advise me?
