I am interested in purchasing Home Designer, and want to know if it will run on my Mac computer. 


Home Designer 2015 and newer program versions will run natively on macOS computers, though will require a certain macOS version listed in the Home Designer Minimum System Requirements.

Home Designer versions 9 through 2014 were supported on Mac computers
using Boot Camp that otherwise met the discontinued version's System Requirements.

Note: Running in an emulator, or virtual machine environment, such as Parallels, VirtualBox, or VMWare Fusion, is not supported with any version of Home Designer.
