HOW TO RUN PEAZIP FILE ARCHIVER ON APPLE OSX

mac osx file archiver




State of OSX port


PeaZip is a cross-platform file archiver and file manager, free alternative to WinZip and WinRar, available on Microsoft Windows, Linux (Qt and GTK2) and BSD.
The application is built with Lazarus/FPC IDE, and Lazarus' support for Apple's OSX is quickly progressing, but Carbon support is not as mature as for other widget sets and it was not yet possible to have a sufficient quality native Carbon build of PeaZip for Apple OSX or Darwin systems.
However, interest in porting PeaZip to Mac OSX platform as native application, rather than with virtualization, emulation or wrapping, remains very high.


Running PeaZip on OSX


Anyway, there are various ways to run PeaZip for Windows on OS X at current level of development

osx virtual machines

Using a virtualization software: Parallels Desktopapple software (commercial software) is probably the most popular choice on OSX, but VMWare Fusion (commercial) and Virtualbox (free) alternatives are available for Macs

windows api emulation
Using Winewindows emulator for apple, an Open Source (free, LGPL) implementation of Microsoft Windows API, acting as a compatibility layer that allows to run Win32 software on OSX, BSD, and Linux operating systems

windows api compatibility layer
A different approach to Wine-based solution is Wineskin Winerymicrosoft windows software for apple (free, LGPL), a simpe tool to build ports / wrappers of MS Windows programs as Mac applications, as described in this articlerun microsoft programs on mac - being both Wineskin and PeaZip Open source software, the ports can be either created for personal use and for re-distribution
