Mac OS Catalina - all WUs error

I upgraded one Mac to Catalina OS and all yoyo WUs are failing with computation errors.

I reset the project but the computation errors continued, so have had to switch to another project :(

Is this a known problem with the Catalina OS, or a local problem that I can work around?

Here is the Event Log:

BOINC Manager is working OK for collatz and I switched CPU processing from yoyo to NFS@Home and that is working as expected too -- it's just yoyo that is resulting in "computation error"

I assume this happens because Catalina dropped 32 Bit support and allows only 64 Bit applications. The wrapper is an 32 Bit app.

Can you upgrade the wrapper to 64-bit?
Anything from 10.5 onwards should be able to use 64-bit (not sure about 10.4), 10.6 can boot directly into 64-bit if the machine supports this, and anything from 10.7 onwards has a real 64-bit kernel.
The later versions of macOS tell you Boinc should be upgraded to 64-bit to be supported, if you run an older version of Boinc.

When will a 64 bit wrapper be available?

Nearly all of my computers are MacOS...

I don't have access to any Mac and don't know how to compile on Mac.

As I just learned in the PrimeGrid chat, compiling for the lowest target OS should create an application that also runs on the highest target OS.
In fact, when the PrimeGrid devs learned their software did not only run on Catalina, but on Lion as well, they were really happy.
Most important thing on their software was the wrapper, I guess. ;-)

So the message to Mac users is that we need to move to other projects if upgrading to Catalina or newer OSs?
