Re: mac upgrade high sierra 10-13-4 to 10-13-6

Hi

No problem with an upgrade to a later release of High Sierra if it is working at the moment.

I’m assuming you have the latest release of iFamily from the link in the members area.

Which versions of macOS and iFamily are you using?

Latest version of iFamily works fine with High Sierra (and earlier).

Re: Upgrade questions

Hi Kirsten

The latest build is 2.9.6 which works with High Sierra, Sierra and (I believe) El Capitan.

You do not need to go through each release. Just download 2.9.6 from the Members area of this forum and run the installer.

Any reason for not upgrading to High Sierra?

Re: 64 bit compatibility

Hi

I have just installed the first public beta of High Sierrra and the bad news is that iFamilyForMac does not launch.

The good news is that Warwick will have it fixed before the public release.

So don't install the public beta on your main or only machine.

Re: 64 bit compatibility

Don't panic!

You are mistaken as High Sierra is stated as being the last version to support 32 bit apps.

So there is still time for an update or two before the release of the 64 bit only macOS :D

Re: macOS Sierra 10.12 - incompatible with iFamily!

Hi,

Version 2.9.4 is still the latest version and works reasonably with macOS Sierra.

Not perfect but it runs and is pretty useable.

The Members forum has a thread on that version and details some of the issue.

Warwick is working on a release but it is taking a while.
