I am trying to write, compile, and run c# windows form apps on my Mac, and I'm having little to no success. I've done mono and I get it to start and run, but the program doesn't completely load/render and it crashes every time I attempt to log in to my database. I've also tried Wine and I couldn't even get the app to start. I have visual studio installed on my MB and I've noticed that the Mac OS version of VS doesn't include the drag-and-drop form builder that is included in the Windows version, which I'm assuming is because you can't build a "windows" app on a Mac.
I'm wondering if it would be a better decision to Remote Desktop to a windows pc or run a VM on my MBP? I feel like the VM would be more convenient but storage is an issue with only 256gb SSD. Also, with an older processor + gpu I'm not sure what kind of perforce I can expect from VM as opposed to remoting into a windows desktop. I'm curious to hear what you do if you have experience in this matter, or if you have any particular advice.
- If storage is an issue, would running a VM from a usb 3.0 flash drive be acceptable?
- Oracle Virtualbox, Fusion, Parallel comparison?
- Does anyone have experience with the Windows Remote Desktop client for Mac? Am I better off with this or a 3rd party app?
