Exposure Software tests products with all new host program versions. Apple macOS Catalina includes a security update that may affect how your software works.
These products have been updated and work well with macOS Catalina.

If you have trouble with any of these products, download and reinstall your product version.

A security change in macOS Catalina prevents these versions from accessing your files. These versions were discontinued before Catalina was introduced and are no longer being developed.
If you own one of these versions mode there are two options:
- Upgrade to the current program version.
- Do not upgrade to macOS Catalina.
Some older products will show a warning the first time they run after updating to Catalina. Catalina added authorization requirements that were not included in these older versions. Use these steps to bypass the warning.
- Open System Preferences, choose the Security & Privacy option and select the General tab.
- Leave the settings window open in the background.
- Run Exposure.
- When you get the warning, go back to the Security & Privacy dialog. You should see an option for Run Anyway. Click it to proceed.
- You may need to quit out of the original dialog and launch Exposure again but it should work the next time.
