Mac users should be able to upgrade to Yosemite without compatibility issues

WVU students and employees who delayed installing the new Mac operating system, Yosemite OSX 10.10, may now proceed and are unlikely to encounter compatibility issues with most University systems.

STAR, eCampus and Kaspersky Anti-Virus downloads should all function normally with Yosemite.

Users could potentially encounter problems with MAP (Mountaineer Administrative Processes) because it currently requires Java 6 rather than more recent versions. Printing in some locations could also be affected because Konica Minolta is no longer releasing new drivers for some older machines. Most printers will become usable as the new drivers are released.

For assistance with either MAP or printing alternatives, please contact Information Technology Services at (304) 293-4444
