Catalina
« on: March 16, 2020, 03:34:41 PM »
I've had a steady stream of work today, but I can't imagine that will continue for long. Has anyone updated to Catalina yet? We don't have RIP or Impo software to deal with; just Suitcase and CC2020. I'm fairly certain those will play nice, but does Catalina screw anything else up? It won't mess up fonts (any more than usual) or network stuff does it? I assume I'll have to upgrade from Mojave at some point, but is now a good time?

We're stuck at Mojave due to Prinergy 8.2.1
I'm interested in your trial though...

Catalina will only run full 64-bit applications so check everything you run. If you run any 32-bit applications they will not run on Catalina.

born2print...Prinergy won't be compatible with Catalina until Prinergy 8.5 that will update both VPS and Preps. Both of which currently are only 32-bit applications.

Joe, have you tried Catalina and then run Mojave in a VM to see if it can still run 32-bit apps. I don't have time, nor an extra machine to test this, but would like to know.

No I haven't. Don't really have the time and running a Mac OS in a VM sucks. My only choice is VirtualBox which is built to not work unless you are running a server version of the Mac OS as it is against Apple TOS to run a non-server version in a VM. I'm going to install Prinergy 8.4 one of these days but that won't work with Catalina either. If I'm still stuck inside next weekend I might install it on my home iMac just to take a look at it. I won't be putting it on a work Mac unless we have to get a new one that comes with Catalina or we get upgraded to Prinergy 8.5 but it is hard telling when that will be released.
