Default Macos catalina

Has anyone tried the neo software on MacOS Catalina. On Mojave it says itís 32 bit and Catalina only supports 64 bit from what i hear.

Assuming one uses only the VBC Touch and only Vlink Neos, is there any reason to use the Mac computer at all for these Mikado products?

I donít have a touch vcontrol so i need the control manager for firmware updates on vcontrol and neo.

Supposedly the touch model can update neo firmware as well as its own using wifi

Thank you. I hope VStabi releases Catalina compatible software for those who need it.

Raylepper i doubt they will update the legacy software so you will probably have to use bootcamp or virtual machine with windows.

Iím sure they will eventually update control manager and neo software for Catalina

I left my field machine at Mojave for now.

Yeah. I run windows 10 under parallels so I just set up Vstabi v5.3. in that environment. Not a problem-just another step.

VBar Neo software is 32 bit and doesn't work in Catalina. VControl Control Manager however does work in Catalina with legacy Java 6:

If you have a newer Java version already installed, it might complain and not let you install the legacy version. If that's the case, post here and I'll guide you what to do next.
