Mac Catalina update

Post by beerphoto » Fri Oct 11, 2019 9:52 am

Hi Jeff - long time happy user here - I was about to update my Mac to Catalina and it's telling me that BeerTools will no longer open with this update. Wondering if this is something you're working on?

Cheers,

Do you have the 64 bit version installed? I know 32 bit apps no longer work on Catalina.

Ahah. I have the 32 bit version installed - can you point me in the right direction to get the 64 bit installed. (And thanks for the quick response.)

Hi Jeff, I recently updated my Mac to Catalina not knowing that Beertools will not work and now its impacting my brewing. Could you please point me in the direction of the 64 bit version or explain to me how to run it on my MacBook. Cheers.

Both the 64 bit and 32 bit downloads should be available on your personal downloads page here:
https://www.beertools.com/html/my.php?tab=downloads

It should work the same as before but let me know if you hit a snag.

Hi Jeff,
I also upgraded to Catalina not realizing I couldn’t use my older Beertools.
When I go to the link above I see my product key and it says “Downloads 1 of 1” but the download button is grayed out and doesn’t work for me.
Is the update free if I had the older version?
I think I’m missing something.
Follow up question: will my old saved recipes work on the 64 bit version once I get it set up?

Thanks!!

Version 1.5 and earlier are not available in 64 bit. If you have one of these earlier versions you’ll have to upgrade to 2.0. This is available at a discount if purchased using the same account as the previous license. Old recipes will open in the new version.
