Answer: DTN IQFeed is a native Windows application. If you want to use DTN IQFeed on an operating system other than Windows, you must have an emulator, dual boot setup, or some other means of running a native Windows application within your operating system.

If you don’t currently have a way to run Windows applications on your non-Windows operating system, DTN recommends the third-party program CrossOver, and offers a rebate for its purchase.
