How to execute Mac apps on Windows: Option 2
If you have an older Windows computer that cannot run a macOS virtual machine on it, you can try using a cloud-based macOS environment.
macOS environments are designed for developers to test their apps, but there is nothing stopping you from using a macOS environment to run an existing app.
Note that there is a charge for using macOS environments and there will likely be a delay between your system and the cloud server.
