Although [**Mac OS**](https://community.denodo.com/docs/html/browse/latest/platform/installation/preinstallation_tasks/software_requirements/software_requirements#supported-operating-systems) is not officially supported, you can access Denodo Platform on Mac OS. To do so, you could perform the following checks:
* Check if the installed [**Java version**](https://community.denodo.com/kb/view/document/Java%20versions%20supported%20by%20the%20Denodo%20Platform?category=Installation+%26+Updates) is supported by the Denodo Platform.
* Then, check if the JAVA_HOME is set correctly. To set the JAVA_HOME, you can do these steps :
1. For bach shell edit ~/.bash_profile
2. For zsh shell edit ~/.zshrc
3. Add the following line :
After this, you can start the servers with **<DENODO>/bin/vqlserver_startup.sh** and then launch the Administration Tool with **<DENODO>/bin/vdpadmin.sh**
Additionally, if you still need help and if you are a user with valid support access then you can raise a support case in Denodo Support Site so that our support team can help you.
Hope this helps!
