Hello everybody, 

With the latest releases for all our software products we are now ready for macOS Catalina, along with some great improvements and bugfixes. 

Please make sure that you have tested all components of your setup / environment before commiting to any new OS.

We suggest to test your new setup on a separate drive/partition, to avoid surprises.

Just installed three updates and checked for Cataliona compatability.

Ensemble is still listed as a 32-bit app.

Since upgrading to Mac OS Catalina I've been having massive problems with VEP 7, Synchron... I believe I found the problem. During the upgrade my Samples folder was moved into a secruity folder as a relocated Item because something about that folder was incapatable with Catalina????

This folder contans my samples and MirX, VE Pro Files, VE sets along with VEP logs and Mir Pro logs. 

Here's what the apple note said...

During the last macOS upgrade or file migration, some of your files couldn’t be moved to their new locations. This folder contains these files.

Files needing new locations

Some of your files had been in a location that is now incompatible with macOS security settings. These files were moved to the Security folder for your review.

If there are any files you want to keep, you can move them to a new location, as long as it is different from their location before the upgrade or migration.

Configuration files

These configuration files were modified or customized by you, by another user, or by an app. The modifications are incompatible with the recent macOS upgrade. The modified files are in the Configuration folder, organized in subfolders named for their original locations.

To restore any of the custom configurations, compare your modifications with the configuration changes made during the macOS upgrade and combine them when possible.

Has anyone run into this? Is there a solution? Do I just move them out of this folder? Does this cause any issues?

Hi Geoff,

Some directories in MacOS are now protected and can't be used to storage sample content or other files.
Simply move these sample files to a new location and fix the links in the DirectoryManager for Vienna Instruments (Pro) and/or in the Synchron Player.

Vienna Instruments: Open the Directory Manager App and delete all entries that are marked in red, then drag and drop the new directory with the sample-content into the manager.

Synchron Player: Open the configuration in the player, go to database, delete all entries that are listed in red, drag and drop the directory with the sample content into it, restart the host.

Best, Ben

Ben- Thank ypu! I was able to move the files and launch VEP 7. All my samplkes load. Only problem is when I try to save the server project I get a message that I can't save the file. I assume VEP is trying to save it in a place that's not allowed. How can I fix this?

Pay attention to the dialog when you Save As, and create a new folder if necessary, where you know the location.

In a related area - can I run Catalina on my main Mac and Mojave on my satellite Mac? Any VEPro 7 issues there?
