Sibelius 6.2 won't open in Catalina

Post by nostoryrob » Sat Feb 13, 2021 8:53 pm

I just got a new MacBook (Catalina 10.15.7) and after downloading my Sibelius I tried to open it and was greeted with this message: The developer of this app needs to update it to work with this version of macOS. Contact the developer for more information.
I called the U.S.number but that number was not good. What should my next step be? Dorico? JK.

You have absolutely no chance of getting a program as old as Sib 6 working with Catalina. Even Sib 7.1.3 won't work with it. If you want to stay with Sib 6, then replace your Mac with a PC.
Sib 6.2, 7.5 and 2021.2, Windows 10, 32GB RAM, 8TB 7200RPM Storage, 2TB SSD, Note Performer 3.3.2, EWQLSO, EWQLSC, Harmony Assistant and some others. mike@mike-lyons.co.uk

Thanks for the response. I went ahead and upgraded to the Ultimate Sibelius. The different look will take a little getting used to but my files are opening so so far so good.
