VMWare Fusion license for MacOS testing
« on: July 05, 2018, 02:07:59 am »
Hi,

I found this really useful tool, that allowed us to test the MacOS version of the Biblepay QT wallet.

As you may know, testing the DMG in the development Mac was misleading, because a dev Mac has all the libraries installed and it's impossible to know if you are leaving one or the other behind.

Moreover, Apple compiler links dynamically by default, so you are forced to whether force a static link (I could do that with libboost, libcrypto, etc.) or include and codesign all the dylibs into the bundle (this was the case for QT framework libs).

I could not have made it without being able to create an empty MacOS 10.13 (High Sierra) virtual machine. Also, this tool allowed me to test in previous OS version, 10.12 (Sierra), creating another empty VM. This way I could check that the DMG bundled all the required binaries.

I am using the 30-day evaluation version, but I would need to get a permanent license to keep on testing on the future (and future MacOS versions that are coming).

Cost is 88,95 ($104) @$0.00185107/BBP = 56184 BBP requested

Thank you for your time.
