General Information

With the October 2019 release of macOS 10.15 (Catalina), Apple removed support for 32-bit applications. While many 32-bit applications may install on Catalina, they will not run. This affects the following 32-bit-only titles in the Multi-Tenant Munki service:

 Title  Suggested Replacement
Adobe Creative Cloud: all pre-2019 versions
Note: Because uninstallers are also 32-bit, removal must be performed
before systems are upgraded to Catalina.
Creative Cloud 2020 versions, or 2019 versions for legacy hardware
 Google Earth  Google Earth Pro (free)
 Google Voice and Video  Google Chrome, or the Hangouts extension with other web browsers
 Inkscape  None
 Mathematica 11  Mathematica 12
 Microsoft Office 2011  Microsoft Office 365 / 2019
 Microsoft Silverlight  None

While the above titles will remain in the MTM service, all have the maximum OS set to 10.14.6 in the pkginfo file, so Munki will not install them on 10.15 systems.

The Endpoint Services team recommends that unit IT Pros uninstall these applications from managed Macs and remove them from their unit manifests, so that the Endpoint Services team can archive them.
