When will TntConnect be compatible with macOS Catalina (10.15)?

Filed under: [Edit Tags]

TntConnect is not yet ready for Catalina.  We don’t have an estimate on when TntConnect will be updated for Catalina because we’re currently waiting on other upstream technology partners to catch up with Catalina, and the first technology partner is indicating “hopefully by the end of the year”.

When we get more clarity on when TntConnect will be ready, we'll update this FAQ article.  We'll also make email announcements to the community. Make sure you're signed up on this website, and make sure that your email address is correct and that you're set to receive emails.

How to Receive Community Announcements
Once you're logged in to this website, click "Edit" at the top right of this website to check your email address, and under "Site Options", make sure that "Receive emails" is set to "Yes":

   

What if You Already Updated to Catalina?
It's very difficult to uninstall Catalina.  But if you have a machine backup, perhaps a Time Machine backup, from right before you upgraded (a best practice), you can restore your computer to right before you upgraded to Catalina. 

If restoring a Time Machine backup is not an option for you, you can use another computer/laptop (or install a virtual machine on your Mac) with Windows or pre-Catalina Mac.  Just move your TntConnect database to this other computer (perhaps via Dropbox).

Since you can't open TntConnect to see where your database file is, use Spotlight to search your hard drive for all .mpddb files, and look for the most recently updated files with a name and location that would looks like something you named your TntConnect database file back when you originally created it.

One of the technology partners I’m referring to (CrossOver) just announced an update.  I'll need to research what this means for TntConnect.  Once I have more clarity, I plan on emailing out an update to the community.  --Troy

TNT had been SUCH a great ministry tool...I just updated my computer to Catalina.  Hoping you can resolve this soon!

Looking forward to the update.

I still don't have a definitive date, but my first order of business in January will be to get TntConnect running on CrossOver 19.0, which can be purchased for $39.95.  It's looking like it might be much later in 2020 until the open source components that TntConnect for Mac relies on will be ready, so running on CrossOver will be the next best way to provide some relief to those on Catalina.  I'd love to promise that it will be done in January, but that's just my best guess.  :)

Hello, Troy.

Can you provide a link to those who would like to purchase the software and the corresponding steps to resolve the issue? Some people's prime time for partnership development is right now until school starts on the college campus.

Thank you, Troy!

Another alternative to use would be Parallels software or Virtualbox

Thank you for the suggestion to use CrossOver.  Before I run TntConnect through the program, will I be able to transfer all of my files back to the Catalina version when it's ready?  If so, how would I do that?

Thanks

Ya seriously everyone check out VirtualBox. I had it working right away in Catalina with no problems. The catch is you do have to have a windows license (I had one lying around from an old computer). It could be as old as Windows XP (right Troy?) then go through the process of creating an appropriate machine within VirtualBox then installing windows. Then you will need to create a shared folder between your Mac and Windows within VirtualBox. You will then have a whole Windows computer within your Mac that you can open up along with all your applications on your Mac. Oh and Best part is VirtualBox is free and open source too! That is what I am going to do until his other open source stuff catches up.

Hi Troy,

At your suggestion, I have purchased a copy of CrossOver 19.0.1 (BTW, using a promo code cw35, I got 35% off the one-year price). If you have a beta product of TntConnect to test on Mac using CrossOver, I'd be happy to test it with you. I'm running MacOS Mojave 10.14.6
