Please download the latest version of LADR for macOS using the link below.
If you do not have a licence key and wish to make use of the free trial, please sign up here either before or after you download the program.
LADR runs on macOS under an API called Wine. While the LADR program provided is exactly the same as the one that runs under Windows, it is bundled with the libraries required to make it run under macOS and this makes it a bit of a larger download.
Once the DMG is downloaded, double click to mount and then read the supplied Readme.txt file for additional details and release notes specific to macOS.
Either run LADR directly from the DMG by double clicking the LADR application, or drag it into the Applications folder to install it on your system.
When LADR runs for the first time it may take a moment, depending on your system performance, to set up the environment.
The program is distributed with a default profile, two example projects (trace elements and UPb in zircon) as well as a comprehensive manual. The manual is integrated with the program and can be displayed using the bundled viewer by clicking the help buttons in the software. The manual contains a "Getting Started" chapter.

It is always an option to run LADR inside a virtual machine running a Windows guest. On macOS a popular VM host is called Parallels but there are other options, including the freely available VirtualBox. Once you have set up your Windows guest OS simply follow the instructions for Windows to run LADR.
