Zoneplanner for OSX

SoI bought the zoneplanner software for my Mac. I get my serials and stuff in my mail and I register the product on the airmagnet site. But then I can only download the windows version and not OSX. So I contacted fluke support but they redirect me to Ruckus Support.. 

So where can I download the Mac version? It's described in the product features as "multi-platform" for Windows/Mac, but no documentation whatsoever is to be found :(

I already made a case, but I thought I should try the forum also..

Well, that's not going to plan at all..

I got a reply from support that I should install Boot Camp on my Mac so I can run the software.. excuse me?

The software features page clearly states the following:

  • Multi-platform (Windows/MAC) support
Product

ZonePlanner is WiFi planning software that lets network administrators design and optimize Ruckus Smart Wireless LANs prior to deployment. Running on Microsoft Windows and MAC OS platforms, ZonePlanner includes unique 802.11n coverage maps for operating mode, channel width and network performance, provides manual and automatic AP placement, and robust modeling capabilities. ZonePlanner accounts for building materials, obstructions, access point configurations, antenna patterns, and a host of other variables to provide a reliable predictive map of Wi-Fi signal and performance.


So ehh.. what is this?

You should have waited and bought Ekahau when it comes out for OSX later this year:

Zoneplanner is just Airmagnet

Your answer is here:

Then click on Specs on the side bar:

Sean,

I understand now that it is in the specs, but in the Features section it says:
  • Multi-platform (Windows/MAC) support
Using bootcamp has nothing to do with Mac because you are using Windows, so it is misleading..

For using the Zone planner one needs to be more perfect. Because there is an error must come while using it. The error is about the Outlook loading profile stuck. Can anyone please tell me how to use it?
