HD 1.8.7 on MacOS 10.13 High Sierra?

Post by skybound13 »

Hello,

Has anyone used HighDesign 1.8.7 with MacOS 10.13 (High Sierra)? I have the opportunity to purchase a used iMac with 10.13, would like to confirm this before making the purchase.

HD 1.8.7 runs just fine on my MacBook Pro running 10.10.1 (Yosemite,) I am assuming that HD 1.8.7 will run on 10.13 based on this comment from Ilexsoft:

“Pre-2016 Versions. Legacy versions of HighDesign, older than 2016.0 (2015.x, 1.8.7) will not run on macOS Catalina as they are 32-bit applications and Catalina only runs 64-bit software.” [from article “HighDesign and macOS Catalina (10.15)“ at http://help.ilexsoft.com/doku.php?id=en ... &s[]=1.8.7]. So, sounds like HD 1.8.7 will run on the 32-bit operating systems but I’d like to see if any users can confirm this.

Thank you.

Hello,

The day before I posted this, I emailed Ilexsoft asking a similar question regarding running 1.8.7 on MacOS 10.12 through 10.15, they responded today with the following:

“HighDesign 1.8.7 does not run on macOS 10.15 Catalina or more recent versions of the system.
If you wish to buy a used iMac, I would suggest to purchase one that can be upgraded to macOS 10.12, 10.13 or 10.14: this way you can install and use HighDesign 1.8.7 and even the upcoming new HighDesign R6 when and if you decide to upgrade.”
