Although through the software update, apple is offering free upgrade to High sierra 10.13.6.


I aware it's not approved, but has anyone in the past had luck running this combo ?. THANK YOU VERY MUCH
Won't work without issues. I assume you've seen this page: http://avid.force.com/pkb/articles/e...tibility-Chart

Even more modern versions of PT like PT10 won't work on High Sierra. For example with PT10 the last known workable OSX is 10.9.5; go past that and there are problems like blank insert menus until you mouse over an insert.

Also it sounds like you'd be doing an in-situ OSX 'upgrade' which while being the Apple Way is not recommended. You always want to do a clean install of a new OSX to a clean drive. That means installing everything from new - PT, plugins, etc. If you do that you won't be able to install PT9 on High Sierra.

The question becomes - why would you want to go to HS anyways?

edit for additional:
Also consider yourself you have PT9.06 running on Mountain Lion as the last compatible combo is PT9.06 and OSX 10.7.4 (Lion)
