    Default BW10 x64 Crash with Catalina OS

    Hello. I updated my Apple OS today with Catalina. I knew that the old BW10 would not work and I would need the x64 version (which I had previously). However, when I tried to open the x64, it crashes. I re-downloaded the ISO to be sure that the old one wasn't corrupted in some way, but the same thing happens? Anyone else have this problem? Any solutions?

    Thanks.

    It was revealed that the 64 bit program still had 32 bit elements in it and it would not be updated. I was waiting for confirmation that it would not run and you provided that. Your options, unfortunately at this time are:
    • Sell BibleWorks
    • Install it on a Windows simulator such as Parallels

    It is very unfortunate that this 64 bit program was left incomplete upon closure of the business. It was not as it was represented by BW before it closed.

    I have been using BW for a long time and updated to BW10 to run it on a Mac. It was expected that the 64 bit program would extend the life to the next few Mac updates, but that is not the case.

    I will avoid updating for a while and then sell BW when I do. People can use our license to run it on Windows.

    Thanks for the reply. That is very disappointing especially since the site still says that the iso is a 64 bit version.

    I try to follow most of the posts on this site, but didn't see where it was revealed that part of the 64 bit program still had 32 bit parts.
