Harmony 890 remote and software not working anymore?

Seems like macOS newest version doesn't allow the older software to work anymore. I tried installing the remote core app harmony says to use now and still won't launch. Ive tried running it on the windows side of the machine and same issue. Wont load.
Does anybody have any issues or fixes for older remote software on Macs?

I tried it on pc a few weeks back no issues. Maybe try a PC? Has to be the older software, not the newer app junk or the my harmony.

Maybe Something Strange Happened in May

My 890 Pro RF also stopped working last month (05/2019) after a button update. It's strange people are having problems during the same month. I had to buy a 900 on Craigslist.

It might be best anyway because the updates are 90% faster and you don't have to update both the blaster and remote. On top of that the Windows 10 driver always fails during connection and at 90% through the update. At most I've had to uninstall and reinstall the driver 22 times during an update until if successfully updates my remote. What a pain.

Logitech has been telling users for over a year now they will update their macOS software to 64bit so it works. They are now saying it will happen by September. Obviously they don’t care about their users and kicking the can down the road. Because of this, many on their forums and Reddit refuse to purchase anything from them until they address and fix the issue.

Damn didn’t know all that. Yea I tried it on the windows side but on my Mac and still issues. Hopefully they release some new software for the older remotes soon for Mac.
