macOS Catalina known issue and our recommendations
Apple dropped support for 32bit applications in macOS Catalina so our MT5 for Mac application doesn’t run in Catalina and to our knowledge neither does any other macOS port of MT5. Furthermore, Codeweavers Crossover and WINE is no longer capable of running MT5 or any 32bit applications after the update to Catalina. For now, our recommendation is to install a Windows virtual machine using VMWare Fusion or Parallels. Your Windows virtual machine will then be able to run the Windows version of MT5 natively without any issues. Alternatively, you could use Bootcamp to setup a Mac and Windows dual boot machine. Another option for users that recently upgraded to Catalina and have recent Time Machine backups would be to roll-back to Mojave. Please contact support if you need any assistance.
