I believe it will run under an emulator (vmware, parallels, etc). Certainly in BootCamp if you can get a non-parallel port dongle (ie a USB dongle).
However, when I said hardware I meant native PCI cards for data acquisition not merely a video card.
NI has a very interesting system for mechatronics. It involves interaction between a mechanical model, software and hardware to actually control the device. Running it all under a single OS would be ideal.
Here is a flavor of what can be done with this toolkit.
Certainly moving things back and forth manually between a parallels installation to check the hardware could be done. This is a stop gap measure until it can be unified.
The other problem with most of the virtualization packages is that you are really using the Windows OS as merely a software driver or interface glue.
