I'm not quite sure what you mean.
Archicad can only save back one version at a time.
But if you have the previous version, you can open the file in that older version and save back one more version.
You can do that for as many old versions as you have installed.
All the old version can be downloaded.

But be aware you will lose data when back saving - new features do not save backwards.

I think he/she meant that for example AC25 would be supported in macOS Mojave still.
Now AC25 seems to need 10.15 (Catalina) and 11.x (Big Sur).
AC25 system requirements

That would help me too at the time trying to tolerate Apple's selection of hardware choices.

edit. corrected AC24->AC25

Ah of course.
Not being a Mac user I didn't pick up on that.

Being Apple, I would have thought that this would be controlled by Apple as part of their uniform ecosystem and planned redundancy plan rather than the software vendor...
