Please be advised that ITS is aware of technical issues brought on by the upgrade for MAC operating systems, Catalina. Apple is aware of this issue and are working diligently on rectifying these problems. In the meantime, we strongly recommend avoiding the upgrade of this version on MACs as there are multiple reports of certain programs that you may use that are incompatible. Currently, 32 bit applications are not supported on Catalina.
Some known programs that are incompatible are as follows:
- Cisco Anyconnect
- All Adobe products
- Examsoft’s Examplify
- Parallel desktop
Want to see which of your apps are still 32-bit? On your Mac:
- Hit the Apple menu
- Select About This Mac
- Click System Report.
- In System Report, scroll down to Legacy Software, and take a look at all your 32-bit apps.
Your app listing should look similar to the example below
If you have already upgraded to the new operating system and have a strong need to use certain programs, please submit a support ticket. Keep in mind that reverting to the previous operating system will take approximately two hours.
