64-bit Applications in Virtual TimeClock 19

Virtual TimeClock 19 shipped brand new 64 bit applications for each edition of Virtual TimeClock. This platform migration, from 32-bit to 64-bit, represents the largest code overhaul in decades and ensures that Virtual TimeClock will continue to operate for years to come on the most modern operating systems from Apple and Microsoft. This upgrade comes on the heels of an announcement by Apple that their next operating system, coming fall 2019, will no longer support 32-bit applications.

Virtual TimeClock 19 is available as a 64-bit application for macOS users, while Windows installers include both 32-bit and 64-bit versions; the correct program will be auto-selected and installed according to the current platform.
