Windows Development on Mac



  • I personally plan to learn Mac OS.

    However, because it has to be tested on Windows, VMWare will try to use it at the same time.

    Therefore, I am curious about the following contents.

    I am worried about the inconvenience when the development environment is Mac OS and the test environment is Windows.

    Is remote compile possible?
    Is there any other discomfort?

    If you compile on mac you will not be able to execute the same on windows. Application compiled on mac should be executed on mac based OS only.

    What do you mean by Remote compile ? What do you would like to achieve ?



  • Thank you for your reply.
    Specifically, what I want is:

    I have experience compiling Linux devices through SSH supported by Windows QT.
    I wonder if it works the same when compiling from Mac OS to Windows.

    Thank you.

    @Kycho said in Windows Development on Mac:

    I have experience compiling Linux devices through SSH

    I guess you mean "compiling ON Linux devices through SSH"?

    For Windows you need a Windows machine to compile. Either install Windows in a virtual machine or use a real machine with Windows which you can access remotely if needed.
