How to Run STAAD.Pro V8i on Mac OS

STAAD.Pro V8i is a popular structural analysis and design software that allows engineers to perform 3D modeling, finite element analysis, steel and concrete design, and more. It is widely used for various types of projects, such as buildings, bridges, pipelines, foundations, etc. However, STAAD.Pro V8i was not developed to run on Mac OS, which may pose a challenge for some users who prefer to work on their Mac devices. In this article, we will show you how to run STAAD.Pro V8i on Mac OS using a virtual machine.

What is a virtual machine?

A virtual machine (VM) is a software that creates a simulated environment that mimics the hardware and operating system of another computer. A VM allows you to run multiple operating systems on one physical device, without affecting the performance or functionality of the host system. For example, you can run Windows on your Mac using a VM, and use Windows applications as if they were installed on your Mac.

How to install a VM on Mac OS?

There are several VM software available for Mac OS, such as Parallels Desktop, VMware Fusion, VirtualBox, etc. Each of them has its own advantages and disadvantages, so you can choose the one that suits your needs and budget. Here are the general steps to install a VM on Mac OS:

  • Download and install the VM software of your choice from its official website.

  • Create a new virtual machine and choose the operating system you want to run (in this case, Windows).

  • Allocate the amount of memory and disk space you want to assign to the VM.

  • Follow the instructions to install Windows on the VM.

  • Activate Windows with a valid license key.

How to run STAAD.Pro V8i on Mac OS using a VM?

Once you have installed Windows on your VM, you can run STAAD.Pro V8i on Mac OS as follows:

  • Download and install STAAD.Pro V8i from its official website or from a trusted source.

  • Activate STAAD.Pro V8i with a valid license key or use a keygen tool to generate one. A keygen tool is a software that creates serial numbers or activation codes for various applications. However, using a keygen tool may be illegal or risky, so we do not recommend it.

  • Launch STAAD.Pro V8i from the Windows Start menu or desktop shortcut.

  • Enjoy using STAAD.Pro V8i on your Mac device.


In this article, we have shown you how to run STAAD.Pro V8i on Mac OS using a virtual machine. This method allows you to use STAAD.Pro V8i without having to switch between different devices or compromise the quality of your work. However, running a VM may consume more resources and battery power than running a native application, so you may need to adjust your settings accordingly. We hope this article was helpful and informative for you.
