I'm trying to install Verifika on two different Macs: one with WMware Fusion (latest version) and one with Parallels Desktop 10, both running Windows 8.1.

I get this error message:


Is it possible to run Verifika on a Mac at all?

Support writes:

Usually, Verifika is working under Parallels. But we do not guarantee this and we do not test compatibility.

Installation has succeeded Oct 4, 2016

For the record:


I've installed the required .NET Framework, looked like it was already installed (since the software offered to repair an installed version). Downloaded via:


Rename the downloaded evaluation version Verifika-x86.msi.exe to Verifika-x86.msi.


Install Verifika.


Request a temporarily license, type it manually into the dialogue box.

Yes it is, or at least used to be Oct 4, 2016


I have been using Verifika in Parallels since 2012 without issues. I'm still using an old version (1.6.4) in Parallels 10 though, so I don't know if anything is broken in newer versions.

It also runs perfectly well with Windows 10. Although the little detour with renaming is still necessary.
