Brand new here - I'm in the food & music industries with a dash of film and marketing around the edges.

Just got a (new to me) 2014 15" Macbook pro to replace a defunct 2012 Macbook; I THINK it's all backed up with Time Machine but... my regular tech buddy who did that stuff has disappeared.

QUESTION: The 2014 laptop has Mojave installed, but I wonder if I would be better off wiping it and cloning/installing the older OS (Sierra or El Capitan) from my older laptop to avoid any glitches with CS6, older software etc?

thanks

Hmmmm.... According to RoaringApps.com, my version of Microsoft Office 2011 should work find with Mojave but I keep getting this message: "The Office for Mac installation did not complete successfully because there was a problem with the installer."

FYI I am using the "restore" function on Time Machine from an external disk if that matters? Scratching my head...

thoughts?

Hello,

RoaringApps may report that it works with Mojave, but that isn't always the case. If it were already installed, you may have a better shot. I would guess something in the installer isn't compatible with Mojave, thus the error.
