Notes for OSX 10.10 Yosemite and later
(available from Oct 2014)
Current & Recent Production Versions of Wordshark & Numbershark:
Our Wordshark & Numbershark 5.003, from November 14, and later, normally work well on 10.10, 10.11 and 10.12, and are available on a USB, DVD and as an Installed/Activated product. There are no CD or network products for version 5.
Minor issues including “Error Code 16”:
Wordshark 5.001 DVDs invite reinstall whenever inserted (this has to be ignored): This is fixed in DVD release 5.002, available from May 2014.
Wordshark and Numbershark 5.001 and 5.002, unless updated to 5.003 before a machine is updated to Yosemite, will return an “Error code 16”, and require patching. (Patch opens in new window)
Wordshark and Numbershark 4.08 (and 4.09, network only):
The USB, network and activation products all normally run. You may find you need to adjust security settings. CD users may experience issues -
For Numbershark CD 4.08 ONLY, ensure the CD is labelled “4.08R”, as the “4.08” is for PC only. (Wordshark 4.08 is Mac/PC compatible)
Wordshark and Numbershark 4.06 and 4.07:
Wordshark and Numbershark 4.05 and earlier:
The CD products are not compatible: If you have these, consider an upgrade. USB, network and activation products run, though you may need to adjust security settings.
