Which versions of Mathematica work on macOS 13 (Ventura)? Does Mathematica 12.0 work on this OS? If yes, I assume all later versions work as well. I know that pre-12 versions do not, as they require 32-bit support.

  • $\begingroup$ @bmf Thank you! Could you post that as an answer? Others who are looking to upgrade to Ventura but need old M versions may find this useful as well. $\endgroup$

    $\begingroup$ @bmf Hm, I thought 12.0 does not have native Apple Silicon support, does it? Are you running it on Rosetta? $\endgroup$

Edit: this is taking the latest comment by @Szabolcs into consideration. I am using a macbook with the Apple M1 chip. I am unsure if there are any issues with Intel chips.

As I mentioned in https://chat.stackexchange.com/transcript/message/62295780#62295780, mathematica wasn't working at first after I upgraded to Ventura (macbook pro,13-inch, 2020, intel). I tried my old install (12.1) and also installing 13.1, but both were not working: whenever I tried to launch the app, the launcher got stuck and I had to force-quit it.

I then noticed that it wasn't the case only for Mathematica, but also other programs were having the same problem (e.g. iMovie).

I didn't have much time to look into the problem, but then a couple of days ago I picked up my mac again, and everything was working fine (including both mathematica versions). I am not sure of what happened there, as I am not using that laptop much nowadays, possibly it had an automatic OS update that fixed the problem, but I am really not sure to be honest..
