Astrology Software Installation Instructions

Installing the Terran Atlas About Mac OSX 10.6+ (Snow Leopard / Snow Lion - VMware) Installation:

Delphic Oracle, Timaeus and the Terran Atlas will run on your Mac OSX with VMware Fusion installed which is a windows emulation program. These programs have been tested on Mac OSX 10.6 and later and is a very stable environment (having been tested even in foreign language environments with different regional settings). I know of one person who runs Parallels 9 on Mac OSX 10.8 and is not having problems, but another in the Netherlands ran Parallels 8 with regional differences and had problems sizing the toolbars properly. Another user in Belgium ran Parallels 9 and encountered problems with the date format with incorrect interpretation of chart data files (*.zcf). The Terran Atlas however was stable in both environments. Delphic Oracle and Timaeus have been tested in VMWare environment on a number of machines both internationally and in the USA without problems which is why I recommend VMWare. If you run Parallels you, should download and install Timaeus Lite to make sure there will be no problems.

Installing the Terran Atlas Delphic Oracle on Linux/Wine

There are mixed results for running Delphic Oracle 7 on Linux with Wine installed which probably has to do with the version of Wine that you have. One individual says that it works fine with this setup of Linux/Wine... but at this point I can't guarantee that it will work on all Linux/Wine setups. Delphic Oracle 8 will not run in this environment because TerraChron needs a more advanced GPU (Graphics Processing Unit).

Installing the Terran Atlas A note about Windows Xp

Since Windows Xp has been deprecated, I'm no longer recommending usage of that OS. Technically Timaeus 9 Pro will run in that environment, but it is less than ideal and a few of the display functions will not be as nice (such as the ListView control). Delphic Oracle 7 will also run, but Delphic Oracle 8 TerraChron requires a modern GPU (Graphics Processing Unit) that doesn't rely on the Windows GDI (Graphics Device Interface). The Swiss Ephemeris and Terran Atlas install fine on Xp and the stand alone version of the Terran Atlas will run on Xp as well.
