There is no desktop version of BrioQuery for Macintosh OS X users. Macintosh OS X users have two options for using BrioQuery:
- In a virtual machine on their computers: Users will need to install VMWare Fusion and then install Windows, the Oracle 9i Client, and BrioQuery, also all available on the IS&T software download page. Then follow the instructions for Windows PCs below to download and run canned warehouse reports.
- Via Citrix:
