What is the process to downgrade Monteray to BigSur? Realised too late that Citrix Workspace don't work with Monteray.

I do have a current TM copy as backup. Any help appreciated :)

Two Options:

- Erase and reinstall with Bootable Big Sur Installer, will put Bug Sur back as the Operation System Volume but leave Monterey Recovery and firmware. Then migrate from your TM backup from before updating to Monterey.

- Apple Configurator 2 (need another Mac, Intel or Silicon) will restore everything back to Big Sur, including Recovery and Firmware.

I have no idea what Citrix Workspace is but maybe a new version is in the pipeline ....what do makers say?

Thank you, Mike!

Citrix Workspace is a client for remote access to corporate domains. Whatever money they make they put way too small percentage in development, i.e. low quality products and (very) slow updates.

In my experience they also run, by far, the #1 internet-site in terms of hording information from web-site visitors. Even worse than MS. I use LS and have never experienced a site making that many connections to all kinds of internal and external servers, just to serve the customer with a file download.

I tried to register myself at their site to ask a question but gave up after realising they are not there to do anything else than collecting information about their users. Even they didn't provide any way to delete a created forum account once it was created. Anyways, all that is a big parenthesis.

Unfortunately I have to use their "product" for work so I'll probably go with Apple Configurator.

* Update: Seems good fortune and a working beta saved me this time.

Thanks again, Mike.

Did you try the beta ? That one supports 12.0.1.


or are you hampered/limited by the slowness of the IT department ?

Cheers loekf, yes I did just try the Beta 2110. The installer said it failed but I could see the App being in the App dir so I rebooted and started it and now it seems to work.

No, I have no dependency to the slowness of my IT-dep. I'm running this on my own computer with no slow IT guys ruling over it :) Thanks for responding.
