Tell me about it. I'm suffering through that right now. I've just bought a refurbished Mac mini with Catalina installed. Just tried compiling my software that uses the Tk toolkit, and have discovered that the Cocoa calls that extract a CGGraphics from an NSWindow no just return nil. No reason. Code compiled on a High Sierra works just fine on Catalina, but the same code compiled on Catalina returns nil. Same dynamic libs employed. Tk code is identical versions. WTF | :WTF:

Now attempting to install High Sierra in a Virtual machine. Had to jump through hoops just to get VirtualBox installed (need to allow Oracle to install stuff your computer, but the notifcation is hidden in preferences panel, so you don't see it). Now trying to get High Sierra installed on the VM, more hoops to jump, which are sufficiently different from the case under High Sierra that its a case of googling to work out what hacks are required. Why, oh why does Apple make it difficult to install their stuff on a virtual machine? It just gets in the way of actually producing the software that runs on their machines.
