    Hi Folks, I have to do some compatibility testing and I need macOS 10.12 (Sierra). Anyone have the installer they're willing to share?

    @Paul M This one works for me:

    It depends on what version of the MAS you connect using.

    Apple support has articles for each OS.

    10.13
    10.12
    10.11
    10.10 was a bad link...

    The "Get..." link in Step 4 is what you want.

    You may need to change the "en-us" part of the url to reflect your locale (not sure, but maybe)

    Good info Jim, Step 4 for macOS 10.12 say:

    If you still need macOS Sierra, use this App Store link: Get macOS Sierra . To download it, your Mac must be using macOS High Sierra or earlier.

    maybe that's why Bob was not able to download it.

    I can download it with 10.11 el capitan ...

    Nope, and I'm a bit concerned by Apple making it much more difficult to get an older installer.

    Take them all and archive them…

    I have all of them since 10.0... it is to send an official link to customers that don't have them and need to reinstall.

    I can fairly understand that only the supported systems are available like this to download.

    @Jean-YvesPochez I can fairly understand that only the supported systems are available like this to download.

    I would hope that Apple understands that developers need to install old OS's sometimes though. I never understood why they don't have full installers in the developer downloads.

    Apple is pretty driven in trying to force us all into the latest and greatest. There's nothing "Developer Special" about those MAS links, but you must be running an earlier version or, at most, one version newer, of macOS for the download to work in the MAS as Alberto and I mentioned above.

    @jim m I never understood why they don't have full installers in the developer downloads.

    Ooh, Ohh, Pick Me! I know the answer to that one - they want developers running the same version as end users.

    I asked about that back in the Lion timeframe when they stopped leaving the Developer builds up.

    For what it's worth, Hackintosh https://www.hackintosh.download has all the images available for download.
