Running ESHA Products on a Mac

There are now two available options for accessing Genesis Supplements, The Food Processor and Genesis R&D on a MAC.

Option 1: Online Subscription ( Preferred Mac setup option)

ESHA now offers a cloud-hosted subscription option for Genesis Supplements, The Food Processor and Genesis R&D.

Please note: Cloud logins are a username and a password, login credentials are provided when the Cloud account is setup.

Customer number and Serial are meant for installed (Desktop) versions. Refer to option 2 (below) if a Cloud username or password were not provided, or contact Sales to request/ switch to a Cloud subscription.


To access the program, you would launch the application from a website instead of installing the software locally on your computer. This requires use of Microsoft RDP, which has it's own system requirements (check the information listed in the Mac App Store for Microsoft Remote Desktop).  If you are interested in this option, you can contact ESHA's sales department by email at, by phone at 1-800-659-3742 x2, or by using the chat box on this page.

Option 2: Desktop Version

If you would prefer to purchase (or already own) the desktop (installed)  version of the application, there are a few software options available to let your Mac run ESHA software:

All of these options use "virtualization" software, which allow you to run Windows simultaneously with Mac OS X

To do so, you will need to purchase and install Windows 7 or later. 

Boot Camp

This software is included in Mac OS X 10.5 "Leopard" and Mac OS X 10.6 "Snow Leopard" and makes it easy to install Windows on any Mac with an Intel processor. As a "dual-boot" solution, when you start your computer, you have the choice of launching either Mac OS X or Windows.

This solution is suitable for two kinds of people: (1) those who want to run Windows exclusively and want to do so on Apple hardware or (2) those who want to run Windows applications occasionally and do not mind restarting their computer to switch to a different operating system.

Parallels Desktop
VMware Fusion

These are all types of "virtualization" software, which allow you to run Windows simultaneously with Mac OS X. In general, Windows runs as just another application in its own window. There is some communication between the two operating systems (e.g., copy and paste, mounting an OS X folder as a Windows drive letter). Unlike with Boot Camp, where the system requirements are no different from what you would otherwise need to run each operating system, with virtualization software you need decent system resources if you want reasonable performance.

This solution is suitable for people who want to run Mac OS X and Windows simultaneously and have the system resources to do so effectively.
