    Hello all,

    I have been fighting for the last few days, with the help of the Orca3d support (very responsive), to try to make Orca3d work on a recent mbp (13" with touch bar) under bootcamp, with no success ...

    Rhino works perfectly fine under bootcamp, and the issue with Orca is just due to the licensing software they are using.

    Orca3d support told me they have many example of it working on macs under bootcamp

    Was wondering if anybody has this set up working, and if a special trick is involved ...

    A little up, nobody is using this setup ? This thing is drivng me nuts.
    Rhino is working perfectly under bootcamp, and Orca doesn't work just due to this licensing software, pretty sure it would be almost nothing to repair, nobody from Nalpeiron here ? :(

    I used to work orca3d under bootcamp. I had no problem as a mac booting in windows (using bootcamp) is a windows machine. You will not succeed if you try to run orca3d under parallels or similar software.
