What platforms are supported?

BigPicture software is compatible with all 32-bit and 64-bit versions of Microsoft Windows XP through Windows 10 and Excel 2007-2016.

NOTE: BigPicture works best in 32-bit versions of Excel. Operations will tend to run slower in 64-bit versions of Excel.

BigPicture is currently only available on the Windows platform. It is possible to run BigPicture on a Mac as long as the user has an application (such as BootCamp, VMware, etc.) that “emulates” Windows on it. If you would be interested in pursuing BigPicture on an emulated version of Windows on a Mac, the following information from Palisade’s Knowledge Base may be of interest to you.

The following was Excerpted from http://kb.palisade.com/index.php?pg=kb.page&id=1056

Our current Palisade software is supported in these Windows environments hosted on the Mac:

  • Windows XP through Windows 10 running using BootCamp.
  • Windows XP through Windows 10 emulation using Parallels, VirtualBox, or VMWare. (Parallels users, launch Microsoft Excel for Windows in Parallels before launching BigPicture. To avoid the need to launch Excel first, use the Registry editing technique described in Which Version of Excel Is Opened by Palisade Software?)
