32 bit apps on new Mac OS Catalina

32 bit apps on new Mac OS Catalina

a bit more of general question, but it’s related to tools like Cocos Studio, but not only that. Is there any workaround to run 32bit apps on the new Mac OS Catalina?

For now I just don’t update, but I’d have to do it in the future. That’s because Apple won’t support older systems for Xcode forever, it’s just a matter of time. I’d like to switch to Creator, but it’s a big task and I also use tons of tools, which runs perfectly fine, but are 32bit only.

You could run a windows virtual machine. Not ideal but would work.

Forgot to mention I don’t want any virtual machines. Transferring files back and forth would be awful.

Not really. Just use “shared folders” and it’s just another folder between host and guest.

Catalina doesn’t support 32 bit apps. It’s going to be a hard work around if one is ever found. Maybe ask on hackintosh groups. Although I imagine this hack would be so popular a simple google search would yield.

No, because the 32-bit libraries are missing.

I’ve heard that you might be able to use a Mac virtual machine, though I don’t know the details.

I made a small research and I think it’s a dead end. It’s just no-update or virtual machine.

Forget the software, Catalina blocks old hardware drivers and many devices (like hubs or docking stations) may not work!

Could the cocos team build a 64 bit cococ studio, I think there are a lot of old project need to maintenance on macOS 10.15 Catalina. Just build out a 64 bit version ,no need to improve or fix any bugs.

I’ve already asked that many times. Unfortunately they won’t do it.

For me, I don’t play upgrading to Catalina for now. I have too many other tools, which are 32bit. But for sure one day I’d be forced to do it (xcode will require newer OS in the future for sure).

I apologize, no, we will not be doing this.
