According to the Applications page, all three Mac WW apps are working for "Mac OS 10.5+ running on an Intel 64-bit CPU".

My machines running Mac OS 10.13 fail immediately. Machines running 10.14 or higher work fine. Failing machine booted up on 10.14 works.

I vaguely remember reading a conversation regarding this (last year), but I cannot find it now. Are the Mac WW apps listed wrong on the Applications page?

Unfortunately, that messaging is hardwired and is not indicative of the actual software requirements. It can't be set individually for each app, so I'll change it to 10.14. Some apps *may* work on earlier versions. It's the same with Windows. The list says Vista is required, but some apps will run on XP. But not all.

Okay, but for the record my 10.13 machines have been working fine on all other projects. It is ONLY the WW project that fails on them.
