Current Known Issues & Areas of Concern

  1. VMWare Horizon: See notes below for how to connect to a virtual machine if you encounter a blank screen. This is a change in behavior and settings needed for VMWare Horizon, but is not "broken".
  2. Avid Pro Tools 2018: "Pro Tools 2018 is not yet fully compatible with macOS 10.14 Mojave" - please see http://avid.force.com/pkb/articles/en_US/compatibility/Pro-Tools-System-Requirements for the latest.


Resolved Issues

VMware Horizon View Client (Virtual Classroom): Users might need to disable the mac firewall feature to allow for the VMware Horizon View Client to access a virtual computer. If you configure the VMware Horizon View Client on your computer (see https://mediawiki.middlebury.edu/wiki/LIS/Using_the_Virtual_Computer_Labs) and it only displays a black or dark gray window, then you have to:

  • Go to "System Preferences > Security & Privacy > Privacy
  • Unlock the lock at the bottom with your credentials (username & password).
  • Once it’s unlocked you should see Vmware Horizon Client.app listed. If it is… check it and relock this window – then test Vmware Horizon Client. It should work.
  • If it’s not listed you will have to click the small [+] button and search for the application to add it. For some reason I had to ‘search’ for vmware … it wasn’t listed for me (odd)
  • Check its checkbox – relock the lock – test Vmware Horizon Client.



Pulse Secure VPN: Use Self Service on Middlebury Macs to download the latest version, or see http://go.middlebury.edu/vpn for a download link.

Vectorworks: The latest version is compatible.

Hindenburg Journalist: The latest version is compatible.

Active Directory: Some permissions have been encountered in the past, but they seem to have been resolved. They only affected ITS support, not everyday usage.
