VMWare's Fusion and its competitor Parallels are both great, though I haven't tried Virtual Box.   Even on newer machines, XP is better bet if your software is compatible with it because running two operating systems simultaneously can really drag things down, especially if two or more processes are happening across platforms (my computer is a couple years old, so maybe there's been improvement).

The best way to run the newest versions of Windows on a Mac or to run processor intensive programs is to do it independently of OSX (i.e., partition the drive with Bootcamp, install Windows on one part, and then choose the operating system when you boot).  This works remarkably well and you essentially have two computers in one (assuming you tweak the PC side a bit to recognize the peripherals properly). You then set up both with your Dropbox, Evernote, and other cloud accounts to share files, clippings, etc. across the partition. Given that the major word processors (except Pages) are cross-platform, and that unicode is finally the norm, you shouldn't have any real difficulties switching and using the same files.  Anyhow… just another idea to consider if people are looking for two platforms on a single computer.

Oracle's Virtual Box (free) works the same though I haven't tested
Sandic yet.  I use Virtual Box regularly on my Mac.  It also requires
a full installation of Windows, though for many programs Windows XP
works fine.

Sandic (including its db) will work fine using VMware (VIrtual Machine),
as I just confirmed.  VMware is a bit of a resource hog (requiring a full
installation of Windows within the VMware app), but you can thereby run
any EXE seamlessly alongside other apps on a Mac.

I've never found a good way to use .db (i.e., database) files on a Mac.
However, you can view/edit them with the free SQLite Database Browser
(and though I don't own the software, I imagine FileMaker Pro would
import .db files).

SQLite at http://sourceforge.net/projects/sqlitebrowser/

My best,

Is this also available in Mac-compatible format?
