Run Sierra Chart on GNU/Linux, BSD, Solaris and Mac OS X


Sierra Chart can be run on GNU/Linux, BSD, Solaris and Mac OS X. The instructions below apply to GNU/Linux.

  2. Optionally install Winetricks.
  3. Install the vcrun2010 and corefonts packages. These can be easily installed by using Winetricks.
  4. Download and install Sierra Chart on your alternative operating system. It is necessary to run the version of Sierra Chart with New Spreadsheets, so there is no dependency upon Microsoft CLR (common language runtime) components.
