AccountEdge and 64-bit

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.”

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 (expected launch in late 2019) will be 64-bit only.  We fully expect AccountEdge to be compliant with all future MacOS releases and to be 64-bit in alignment with Apple’s timeline. 

As with any new operating system, we recommend you don’t install the next version of MacOS until it is officially released (in other words, don't run beta versions/public preview releases) if AccountEdge is critical to your business.

 

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