SolisWorkspace: macOS

This manual describes how to install SolisWorkspace on macOS.

  • We recommend using Firefox or Chrome to follow this manual.

    Do not use Safari because the Citrix Workspace App isn’t supported. This means you’ll be using SolisWorkspace ‘light’ (HTML5) and this has limited functionality.

    Also see the SolisWorkspace FAQ.
