    Here is what I get in trying to download BW10 x64 Mac Installer: "“BibleWorks” cannot be opened because the developer cannot be verified. macOS cannot verify that this app is free from malware."

I thought BW was ethical, but I got suckered into upgrading from BW9 to BW10 for no reason. You refused a refund. Unacceptable. I feel betrayed. Took my $ and ran.
    This simply is not true. We said up front that we would use our best efforts to produce a 64 bit version of BW before closing down. That but was there from the beginning and that is what we did. We also said no refunds because the price was so low and because the company would not be around to process refunds. We never deceived anyone. We also advised that if we were unsuccessful, third party solutions would likely be available. We were dependent on Crossover to produce a 64bit compatible version and on Apple to provide a timnely Catalina release. These things simply did not work out and it was completely beyond our control. I kept our Mac guy on board for six months after the company shut down in the hopes of something materializing, but it never did.

    It has taken a year and a half since our closue but Crossover now is in alpha for a Mac version that can run 32 bit programs like BibleWorks. That will eventually provide a solution for very little cost. I think crossover is around $60 and you can find Windows 7 versions for around $20. I am not happy about the way this worked out but we were up front about the whole thing and in case you missed it, I am continuing to support the Windows version a year and a half after closure of the company. No compensation. Very few companies would bother and there is certainly no moral obligation to do so. If you must be angry, direct a little of it towards Apple. But it would be better just to show a little understanding.

    Mike, are you planning to make a new version of the Mac installer, when a stable version of CrossOver is available?

    To correct your statement, CrossOver is currently in the Beta(2) phase. I have tested it briefly and as far as I can tell so far, everything works, even the CE languages display, when a suitable CP1250 font is supplied. Otherwise, CrossOver is about $60, but you can usually get a promo code (just use google), which can get the price to less than $40. Also, you don't need to buy any Windows license, it's just an emulator.

    Do you have any suggestion, what I can try out to confirm full functionality?

    To all: you cannot seriously expect a company that has gone out of business about a year ago to provide any kind of support. This problem is cause by a decision by Apple with serious consequences. You can read the story at CodeWeavers' blog, why the solution is available this late. Also, this problem still has more than one solution...
