So ... after a lot of trail and error, I am able to NOT INSTALL the Encompass Document convertor - but, I am able to run ENCOMPASS on my 13" MacBook Pro M2. I am able to upload and download PDF's to the efolder. thing is ... I have no idea how to explain what I did. And, I have an irritating dialog boxes that try to install the document convertor every time I open encompass that I have to stop and let it fail out before encompass will load.
