AccountEdge and 64-bit macOS 10.15 Catalina

Article ID: 2025229              Last updated: 5 June 2019


When running AccountEdge on macOS 10.13 High Sierra or 10.14 Mojave, you may see a message about AccountEdge not being optimised for your Mac. 

AccEdge not optimised for your Mac

The message does not indicate that AccountEdge is not compatible with your Mac.  Instead, it indicates that AccountEdge is a 32-bit product, rather than 64-bit.

As Apple says in the article linked to the message "You may continue to use 32-bit apps with your Mac today. Using 32-bit software has no adverse effects on your data or your computer.”


AccountEdge 2019 (or earlier) 32-bit applications will not currently operate on 64-bit macOS 10.15 Catalina.

While AccountEdge is currently a 32-bit application, the development team has been hard at work on a 64-bit version.

MacOS 10.14 Mojave continues to support 32-bit applications but the subsequent macOS 10.15 Catalina (expected launch in late 2019) will be 64-bit only. We fully expect AccountEdge 64-bit to be released in timely fashion for Apple's general public release of macOS Catalina. You will automatically be notified of the update.

As with any new operating system, we do not recommend you install the next version of macOS 10.15 Catalina until it is officially released (in other words, do not install beta versions/public preview releases) if AccountEdge is important to your business.


You can read Apple's statement on the transition to 64-bit in the following article:
