This product will only run on MACs running Mojave (10.14) or earlier as it requires a 32bit OS. Beginning with macOS 10.15 (Catalina), Apple has eliminated the option to run 32-bit apps on the Mac. eMedia developers are currently working on software updates to support Catalina and future versions of macOS, but this is a major undertaking. They are currently unable to foresee how long it will take us to create these new versions.
