Mac OS Catalina

Post by John Compiani »

Does anybody know if HighDesign 2017.1 is working OK with the latest Mac OS Catalina beta?

I describe my experience in my other thread.
I haven't followed up on Andrews suggestions but will update the thread when I do.
I hope to get back to it next week.

We tested HighDesign 2017.2.2 and R5 on the latest Catalina beta and they run correctly.

Anyway, in the near future, Apple will restrict the ability to install packages that do not meet certain security measures they introduced last year (hardened runtimes and notarized packages, for the curious). That means that the HighDesign 2017 .dmg package downloaded from the Internet will no longer be opened and the 2017 app may not be allowed to run.

HighDesign R5 on the other hand meets all the new criteria and installs and runs without problems on macOS Catalina.

We've released a technical document on the compatibility of HighDesign 2017 and R5 with Catalina.
