Run Workshop in a VM
« on: April 17, 2019, 03:14:07 PM »
Anyone running Workshop in a VM on their Mac. Trying to get around the idea of having Kodak come in to upgrade our server to 8.3, just so we can run Indesign 2019 in Mojava (with the hopes of getting ride of the painful slowness). Thinking of upgrading the Mac to 10.14 Mojava, but Workshop 8.2 won't run on it, in my testing, so was thinking of running that on 10.13 High Sierra in a Parallels VM on the Mac. But everything I try to log into Workshop it crashes. It shouldn't be this difficult.

Haven't tried it in a VM but...

I am running Mojave on my Mac and running Workshop 8.2. No issues at all. Is your issue that the installer for 8.2 won't run? Which it won't but you can copy Workshop over from another Mac and it will then run just fine.
