    Bootcamp for MC 2018.12.15 ? SOLVED - IT WORKS

    First - no laughing.  Big Smile

    So - I bought a 2020 iMac knowing full well it would not work with Mojave and therefore any of the MC 2018.x line. 

    But I have been wondering if anyone has tried using Bootcamp and Windows 10 to run any of the MC 2018.x line on a Mac?

    Before I spend money on a Windows license and start a science project I thought I would ask the hive.

    Thanks,

    Jef

    This doesn't answer your question, but I'm happily running MC 2021.3, in Windows 10 (2004) on bootcamp across a fleet of 2020 iMacs, to get past another incompatibility.

    We've just finished a series with 20+ machines doing this - so Bootcamp IS an option...

    Providing you were running the correct windows update (i.e. not 2004) of Windows for 2018.x, it might work... Your main issue will potentially be video card conflicts with the new / current Bootcamp drivers, and windows 2018.12..

    Worth a shot!

    To wrap this up.  I got around to doing this.  It works.  I stupidly started another thread about it.  See that for good details.
