Installation Steps

  • Download AQ for Mac (Whether you choose a link to download AQ or AQ Basics, you will be downloading the same installer. It doesn't matter at this point.)
  • Open the downloaded file on your Mac
  • Drag the Ancestral Quest app to your Applications folder
  • Select Ancestral Quest from the Applications folder
  • The first time that AQ runs, it will install a component from Microsoft that will allow AQ's "Collaboration" feature to work. Follow the prompts to install this.
  • You're done!

If you are running AQ without a Registration Key, choose the option to run Ancestral Quest Basics, or if you have purchased a Registration Key, enter it when prompted.
