Virtual and remote desktop support

Most remote and virtual desktop solutions (e.g Remote Desktop, Citrix, VMware, Parallels) make use of virtual graphics drivers which in most cases do not support versions of OpenGL beyond version 2.  Some virtual desktop solutions can be provided with more advanced capabilities by employing solutions such as Nvidia’s Grid and AMD’s Fire Pro but these have not been tested with BIMcollab ZOOM.
 

Parallels Desktop for Mac

The windows version of BIMcollab ZOOM can run under Parallels Desktop for Mac version 12.2.0 and higher.
