I have just purchased a copy of Aartform Curvy 3D 2.0 Pro OSX to run on my iMac which has OS Catalina 10.15.7
but I get the message "Curvy" needs to be updated, can you please help.

Hi, thanks for getting in touch. Curvy has not been updated on Mac for several years now. The recomended way to use Curvy on Mac is to use an emulator like "Wine" with the Windows version (you can try this out on the demo of Curvy - if it works you can have the upgrade to 4.1)

Hi,
I have tried the Demo on my iMac and my 2015 MacBook Pro with Wine 5.9, Wine Bottler Combo 4.0.1.1 , and even wine Bottler Combo 1.8.6
with no luck.
Has anyone managed to get Curvy3D_Demo_setup.exe with wine?

Thanks

I read in another post that PlayOnMac works and it did, I am pleased to say that I am now running the Curvy4 Demo.

Curvy3D v4.1 does work on my iMac with PlayOnMac 4.3, but I have discovered that I have to use PlayOnMac 4.3 to install it every time
I want use it, it does not appear to retain the installation.

Anyone else having the same trouble?

Can you find where the installed version of Curvy is put? It should be able to run it from there in the future rather than from the installer. But I don't really know how it works :/

I don't think it installs at all, found a shortcut but did nothing when I double clicked on it.
