10.14.6 32 bit compatible?
« on: October 14, 2019, 09:06:24 PM »
Hey Guys, will OS 10.14.6 still run 32 bit applications?  I know that 10.15 won't, so. . . Thanks in advance!

Yes.
It will complain that certain apps "are not optimized", but they will still run fine. And the alerts/warnings are not constant so I'm not bothered by them. My wife, however...  :p :eek: :toothgrin:

I'd say that any dev who has waited this long to update their app is probably looking for a different way to earn a living. That said, at least one well known app, Fetch, has started work on updating to 64-bits. I have already changed to another FTP app since the Fetch dev had said he would not be updating it last year. :wallbash: :dntknw:

Echoing Jim, 32-bit apps run fine in Mojave. This is a general statement only. Some apps (Photoshop CS5 comes to mind) are unstable, even though they nominally work. MS Office 2008 works but is a bit wonky.

You might want to check out https://roaringapps.com to see what they say.

That has nothing to do with Mojave macOS 10.14, that's just the way MS always does things their own way! :p :doh: :wallbash: :scram:

True as that might be, Office 2008 worked better in OS's previous to Mojave.

Well, I took a chance and updated to 10..14.6, held my breath, rebooted and fired up my bought and paid for Lightroom 6.?, which is the 32 bit application that I did not want to have to do without, and am happy to report that it runs just fine!  So, although I haven't tested a lot of the other 32 bit apps, I have no doubt that they'll run fine!   :clap: :eusa_dance: :yahoo:

Yes - Lightroom 6.14 runs ok with Mojave. It's actually a 64-bit app, but it has various 32-bit appendages, including the installer, uninstaller and updater.

NOTE: All of those bits will not work on Catalina, and people have noted that in Catalina, they can't quit and had to force quit - which eventually corrupts the database. Someone has reported that removing all the 32-bit parts in Catalina did allow one to quit the app normally, so that may be the way forward. However, there may be other issues - I'm on Mojave on the laptop and still on High Sierra on the iMac, because I can't afford the time to deal with moving 100,000+ images into a new app (CaptureOne - which doesn't work entirely in Catalina yet, either) or concede defeat and subscribe to LR/PS (neither of which are yet entirely compatible with Catalina either as of this writing).
