Reports appear to confirm there are no issues with running RootsMagic on the final release of Mojave, that a complete uninstall / reinstall cannot solve. It is rare to need to do a complete uninstall. 

 

A complete uninstall includes the CrossOver wrapper around RootsMagic as well as the program itself. The directions are below

  1. Make sure you have a backup of any RootsMagic data files
  2. Delete any and all RootsMagic .dmg files from your computer
  3. Drag and drop the RootsMagic application icon to your trash bin
  4. In Finder, select Go > Go to Folder
  5. Type ~/Library/Application Support
  6. Drag the folder labeled "RootsMagic" to the trash bin
  7. Go to ~/Library/Preferences and delete the file called com.rootsmagic.rootsmagic.plist
  8. Drag and drop the RootsMagic 7 shortcut icon on the Dock to your trash bin
  9. Download and install the latest version of RootsMagic - http://rootsmagic.co...d/RootsMagic-7/

This will completely uninstall RootsMagic for Mac "and" the Crossover programming as well.

Codeweaver just released version 18 compatible with Mojave.

 

Can mac users expect to get a fixed version of rootsmagic that will at last address the many issues on Sierra and High Sierra often blamed on retina screens?

Just because Codeweaver's latest version is compatible with Mojave, doesn't automatically mean they resolved those issue in the wrapper they have created for RootsMagic. We will just have to see. It would be nice.
