According to this site: http://dvd-collection-software-review.toptenreviews.com, DVD Profiler is also available for Mac computers. I have a Windows licence, but I am now using only Mac computers. Where can I download the Mac version of DVD Profiler from, if available?  Thank you.

There's no Mac version. The information on that website is incorrect.

Why should we? Apple Mac is iTunes, they don't even have DVD or Blu-ray drives. Better get a real PC.

I am not affiliated with this program, so I'm not considering anything.

Incorrect?  It's true that there isn't a Mac version.  But it runs fine in Windows emulators.  I use Parallels on my Mac and have no issues running the program.  That said, I'd very much prefer a native Mac application, but at least there are options.  I also don't suspect we'll ever see a Mac version unless a third-party takes that project on.  I'd love to be wrong, but that's my guess.

There's a slight possibility if Ken upgrades to a newer version on Delphi which supports cross-platform.

Just for the record, I recently switched from Parallels to VMWare Fusion.  Profiler still works great.

I switch to VirtualBox quite some time ago and it works just as great. Advantage of VirtualBox: it's free (so you only need to prepare that Windows license).

I have run bth Parallels and VMWare Fusion in the past and was satisfied with both. But seeing that I only need Windows for DVD Profiler and Microsoft Project I ended up switching to the free solution.

I was quite happy with Parallels.  But this year they switched to a subscription model.  Then to make things worse, I recently got a new Mac and found out I needed separate subscriptions for each machine.  VMWare on the other hand lets you install on multiple Macs, so I went that way.  But I think next time around, I might look into VirtualBox.  At this point, I run Profiler on Windows and Visual Studio (development) stuff.  If a Mac version was available, I might skip it altogether.  I really only need Visual Studio when I work on my plug-in stuff.

Yikes! I know I won't be using that again in the future then... Although, I came around to this idea with things like AutoCAD (for the colleagues in my office) or Office...

Anyway, VirtualBox works just as fine, really. Not sure right now how easy to would be setting it up with a BootCamp partition, but beyond that I rarely have issues. They regularly release updates to keep up with development of macOS. I have linked it in the past, but here I go again:
