That depends - the simplest way is to run Parallels on a Mac or Virtual Box (free at and use a shared folder,

Because of a limitation of Visual Studio, your RackAFX Project folder must be a local folder of that machine (or VM) and it can not be on the Desktop either.

in Parallels, this is easy since you can set the VM so that the Mac can directly share (access) the Windows drive and folders. I found out the hard way that this doesn’t work the other way around; i.e. do not set your RackAFX Project folder to a Mac-side folder; Visual Studio won’t load your project properly & sync won’t work.

If you get a message from Visual Studio about “trusting this project” when you open it in RackAFX it means you are either using the Desktop or a Mac-Side folder folder as the project folder which it doesn’t like.

You can move projects using network connections too - my Mac and other PC laptops can see each other on my network.

Worst case scenario is to manually move the projects with a memory stick or other method.
