Before starting, please note

  • No Windows applications other than MasterFile and those explained in the macOS section of this knowledgebase should be installed in the MasterFile bottle. Please contact us if you have any questions.
  • If you do install any 3rd party Windows applications into the MasterFile bottle, you may corrupt your installation; it may not be recoverable. Any support for such errors are not covered by your MasterFile maintenance and technical support subscription and will be billed as professional services.

We also recommend you archive your installation before starting, as explained here.
