Title: What about EA running in iOS Catalina version?
Post by: Arquesoft (Mauricio Moya) on September 03, 2019, 06:24:06 am
I'm trying to install EA in iOS, in the preview of Catalina (version 10.15 beta), but some of the typical steps to install could not be completed. It is due Catalina has not support for 32 bits apps, so, it would not be possible to run EA in the new version of iOS?

That's correct according to my understanding. Enterprise Architect is only available in 32 bit and if you upgrade to macOS Catalina you will not be able to run it under Wine. (I would assume a virtual machine is still an option)

Crossover is the best way to run EA on a non Windows platform. Its worth investing in Crossover (if its supported on Catalina). It is essentially a managed wine implementation.

IIRC, you can get a 30 day demo if crossover, to try it first.

So it seems that we Catalina Mac users have to stop using Sparx EA.. got to start using Archi for example..

Generally a good idea before doing a major OS upgrade to check if your important applications will continue to work.

If you've already done the upgrade I'd look at a virtual machine.

Parallels claims to be Catalina compliant and will run Windoze. Means you can use EA further on. I can't confirm yet, since my new MPB is only ordered yet and the old one is stuck on High Sierra.

Crossover 19 (in beta) claims to be Catalina compliant.

Crossover 19 (in beta) claims to be Catalina compliant.
Which does not mean that 32 bit Windows apps will run.

Hi all,

Just for your information, Crossover will support "32 bit on 64 build, which we use to make '32' bit bottles on Catalina". I have not used the beta so I have not confirmed by myself, but it might be helpful to use Enterprise Architect on the new MacOS.

I just installed Parallels on my new MBP and can confirm that EA runs without issues.
