Dorico 2 / OSX Mavericks (10.9.5) unofficial support

I’ve been using Dorico 1 on OSX 10.9.5. (Mavericks) without issue. Are there reasons why Dorico 2 Pro wouldn’t work on Mavericks as well?

(I have an older Mac laptop and have no other reasons to upgrade.)

Thank you!

No, I’m afraid Dorico 2 really will not even start up unless you’re running Mac OS X 10.11 El Capitan or later. Sorry!

Yeah, this really crushed me, when just after buying the upgrade I noticed it wouldn’t open… I don’t know if I’ll get El Capitan working with my whole ecosystem of software. Will give it a try.

I’m really sorry about that, Alvaro. I did put a big notice in the post at the top of the forum about this to try to warn people who have been sneaking in on unsupported operating systems with Dorico 1.

oh well - guess I’ll stick with Dorico 1 until my laptop begins to die. I hesitate to upgrade it past 10.9.5 because that’s the OS it came with and it seems to be super stable. I’m sure the newer OS will make it slower… six year old laptop so far still going strong! (fingers crossed)
