Vectorworks 2010 - Mac OS requirements?

Recommended Posts


Very very vintage setup - if this offends, please look away now.


My Mac recently died, I am using a borrowed 2009 Quad core Mac Pro while I sort out what to do next.

It badly needs updating as it is still on OSX 10.6

It has Adobe CS5 and Vectorworks 2010.  I will probably replace CS5 with CS6.


Any idea what OS I could take it up to without breaking Vectorworks or CS5/6?

I know it won't be very recent, but anything would be an improvement on 10.6 in terms of security.

Interesting that 2010 and 2011 ran on "10.5 or later".  2012 ran on 10.5, 10.6, 10.7, 10.8 !!


Can you pop in another hard drive with OS 10.7 to test it without upgrading the 10.6 drive?

VW 2010 does not seem to run on MacOS 10.7 or higher, at least according to:
