Here's what I would try for an existing installation (CafeTran must not be open):
- Make sure CafeTran is fully updated.
- Backup the CafeTran app
- Download the latest CafeTranMac-install.dmg from https://www.cafetran.com/download-for-mac/
- Open the DMG, right-click on the .app file to Show Package Contents..
- Go Contents>Java and copy the /runtime folder and the Cafetran executable. Copy also the MacOS folder (in contains a single cafetran file).
- Open a second Finder window, go to Applications, Show Package Contents of the existing CT installation (right-click on the CafeTran Espresso.app) and paste the above items to the same location.
Depending on the method used to backup and restore the user files, this could be simpler to perform.
This morning I migrated my iMac to macOS Mojave and CafeTran Espresso 2019 to the new version with an embedded Java runtime.
Once more, there were no problems with the migration:
In the attached PDF you will find the procedure ...
Thanks. Just be to sure:
Any chance to get a migration routine for all the settings? This is somehow cumbersome, especially when new full versions and not only updates are going to be installed.
I think you're asking Igor here? All I can say is that my settings were kept, during this major operation.
For me this is okay, But I assume some other Mac colleagues might get lost in transition. Isn't CT on Mac more than the hacking Mac fraction? 99 per cent of translators are not tech-savvy (or at least not willing to be so).
In the past I have performed such tricks and got problems with rights, that caused CafeTran Espresso 2019 to crash. So I'd be careful to inject any new modules.
My 2 cents.
Thanks Jean, this was an extraordinary, but perhaps better way to switch than vice-versa.
