Personal Edition is only supported on Windows. Mac OS is not officially supported.

you need to manualy extract the contents of the pega installation JAR file, install the web application into an existing Tomcat installation on your Mac and install and fill the database manually

HI,

There is no support for a Pega PE on Mac OS. The easiest way would be to grab one of the training virtual machines and run that on your Mac

Thanks

Hi,

This option is available only for 7.1, is there any option to install 8.3?

Leela, seeing that you need help to install Tomcat, I would not recommend you then to install Pega v8 on MacOS. It's very complicated process.

Easier for you would be to download from any of the courses (CSA, CSSA, CLSA) a virtual machine and run Pega from it.

I am using Macbook Pro and when ever I try to save the application I get kicked out and all my progress is lost - Any suggestions or detailed steps to install Mac Personal edition will be highly helpful ..

There is no Pega Mac Personal Edition :)

Do you use virtual machine in your configuration?

Response to vaspoz

Pega never supports running natively on MacOS. However, a lot of developers do run Pega (NOT personal edition, which is only supported on Windows) natively on MacOS, mainly for non-critical tasks. I am running an instance on my macOS mainly to check rules, explore components etc. But yes, there can be quite a few issues along the way, it is not for someone who just wants the system working since it can have issues from time to time that requires technical skills to fix.

Some how VM installed in the machine, started VM and displayed and asked me to enter credentials to login VM. Entered the credentials and when I tried to hit url (copied from VM) in browser, it's not loading. attached VM screenshot, please check.

Response to LeelaKrishna369

You need to adjust Network configuration for your VM. I don't remember exactly, but try Bridge (if it won't help, try other options)

IF I use any other network, I am not getting correct URL, attached screenshot, please check.

October 24, 2019 - 5:14am
Response to LeelaKrishna369

For any other network, facing http://:9080 URL on VMWare issue. Verified the details from this https://community1.pega.com/community/pega-academy/question/http9080-url-vmware. for very option I am facing the same issue. 

My Mac OS version is 10.14.5 (18F2059) and this option is not avialable in VM virtual box to select.

Response to LeelaKrishna369

What's URL you get using Bridge network connection? and with Host-only?

October 24, 2019 - 5:42am
Response to vaspoz

I am using NAT network (host only adapter). For any adapter url forming as http://:9080 and for bridge adapter it is forming as http://10.0.Z.15:9080 and still not able access it.

Response to LeelaKrishna369

plus, you mentioned that when you try to reach the URL, "it's not loading". You see an error message? or it keeps loading without an outcome?

There is update to my current OS (from 10.14 to 10.15) after upgrade system recommended to download newer version of VM box (6.0.14). Downloaded new VM box, uninstalled old VM and installed new VM after OS upgrade (10.15). Started VM with bride adapter and got error to change adapter settings, modified promiscuous mode to allow all. VM started successfully with correct URL and able to access the designer access the url formed.

Is url is always dynamic? when the wifi network changed it is forming new url and for one network , the url is not forming correctly.
