    Default Command WorkStation 6 on High Sierra

    Has anyone installed the latest version of CWS on a Mac running the beta of High Sierra? If so, have you encountered any issues?

    We do NOT recommend using CWS with the current beta build of High Sierra (Mac 10.13). During our investigation with this configuration, we discovered some incompatibilities between the current High Sierra seed and CWS (such as with launching Device Center, switching between views, and Job Properties).

    Our experience with past Mac OS versions is that the beta builds resolve many problems like this as the Mac OS gets closer to the final release; we'll be watching this very carefully to see if we need to make any changes to our software.

    Is there any update on this?

    High Sierra is being released in less than two weeks and our office needs to test it before deploying it to all computers.

    No update then?! Are we all just supposed to install it and cross our fingers that it works?

    Until we have tested the final release build of High Sierra we cannot guarantee performance or support for this OS.

    We've found in past releases that Apple has changed many things in their final OS release (from previous beta releases) so as soon as it comes out, we do a complete round of testing, and then act accordingly.

    I can only say that within a week of the final release (usually much sooner) we can report back whether CWS6 works fine, or if it will need an updated version to support the OS.

    The GM beta version was released last week, which is the version that goes public next week, so there is no reason that it shouldn't have already been tested.

    Of course.

    And when you have complex production software, you need to wait until every bit of it is compatible with the new OS, and then test the entire suite with the OS before rolling it out.

    You will find that Apple is the most difficult to work with, and ultimately you will find not to expect to roll out any of their new OS quickly.

    We are testing each beta build that is released, and with the GM seed we aren't seeing any issues.
    However until we have tested the final release build of High Sierra we cannot guarantee performance or support for this OS.

    When the official GM comes out 9/25 we will test and then update the forums.
