I want to develop for iOS but I have a windows 7 laptop. I saw a screenshot of OSX run virtually but couldn't see in what application.

Is it possible to run Mac virtually in Windows or not? Anyone tips?

    It should be noted, as I stated in this answer that this is not legal, according to the OS X EULA. Also, this question may be a duplicate of my the one in my link. – xdumaine Apr 2 '12 at 12:56

    Unless you have an Apple computer what you want to do violates the Terms of Use for OS X. OSX has protections because of TPM security. – Ramhound Apr 2 '12 at 12:58

    @roviuser: Fortunately for most of us, Apple does not write the laws in the countries we reside in. The enforceability/legality of EULAs is still in dispute. In the U.S., there's no consensus in the court system to the legitimacy of the "sale of a license to use, not sale of a product" perspective, which undermines the consumer right of first sale. Only in the states where UCITA has been passed is your statement an actual matter of law. And only 2 states have passed it so far. – Lèse majesté Apr 2 '12 at 14:17

    Shortened links are a) unnecessary and b) smell of spam. Please use the full link. – ChrisF Apr 2 '12 at 8:12
  • I just use a plug-in in VIMperator which automatically make shortened links every time I try to copy the url. I think I should be careful using that plugin for this forum :) – sowrov Apr 2 '12 at 8:16

Virtualizing OSX on Windows should be possible with VMware and VirtualBox. The latter is even available for free and a fitting tutorial can be found here.

  • You can only virtualize OSX on an Apple computer using VMWare on VirtualBox respectfully. At least thats how it suppose to be. – Ramhound Apr 2 '12 at 12:57
