    RM CC4 Smart Client on a Mac?

    Hello, I would like to add an Apple Mac system to our RM CC4 network.
    I currently have Windows 7 installed on the mac using bootcamp.

    Will the RM Smart Client sucessfully run and join the Mac to CC4 or do I need to go about things another way?

    Thanks for any help.

    Although I haven't done this myself I was talking to someone who had done this a couple of days ago and a straightforward smart client was successful.

    Ah ok, thanks. I will give it a go then. I just didn't want to mess up the version of Windows 7 although I believe the CC4 version of Smart Client does not require the os to be rebuilt if the joining process fails - just thought I would play it safe anyway!

    I have 60 macs (imacs and macbooks) smart cliented in this way. I can confirm it works well.

    It has just finished worked very well. Thanks for your posts!

    This is what worked for me:

    Open apple mac, fully update via system update,
    Open bootcamp and update, plus make windows support disk.
    Install Windows 7
    Fully update windows 7 but don't activate.
    Insert proxy details
    Run Smart Client.

    Give it just over 1 hour

    Job Done!

    Hi guys, since last posing, the imac has worked very well. However, it seems to keep shuting down if it is not used for a few hours. Also it is not coming on in the mornings using the start up task. It does not appear to support WOL.

    Does anyone have any experience of this?

    Thanks.
