    Can I run Access on a late 2008 Macbook.


    Like many, I'm stuck at home for awhile. Trying to figure out a way to run Virginia DEQ's Risk Assessment model, which runs on MS Access, on me macbook.

    The only way I know of is to use some sort of virtualization software, as Access only runs on Windows. My boss has a Mac and I used VMWare Fusion.

    Hopefully someone will chime in with other options. I believe there are others but don't know offhand what they are.
