Windows users

A common question is if there are Windows compatible versions of Patternodes or Vectoraster. The answer to this is no, and it's very unlikely these specific products will ever be ported to Windows.

However, for this and other reasons we're considering developing a new platfrom independent web-app with similar functionality, you can vote and sign up if you're interested in that here.

If you do not have access to a macOS computer, an alternative in the meantime could be cloud-based services such as MacWeb, MacInCloud or others that let you access a macOS system remotely.
