    Hello,

    I have an older compiled application that is not yet running in Retina mode. Now I found the Xojo blog post Enabling Retina Support and inserted the following code into the Info.plist file as described.

    <key>NSHighResolutionCapable</key>
    <true/>

    If I now start the program, it still appears in the low resolution. I have read that the cache of the application needs to be refresh. Therefore you should enter the following command in the macOS terminal:

    sudo touch /Applications/Appname.app

    However, the application still does not start in Hi-DPI mode. How do I get the desired result?

    Depending on how old it is, you may still need to recompile with a newer version of Xojo.

    the linked article seems to imply you need to have compiled with 2014 or newer (last line of the text)

    Grab Xojo 2014 Release 2 to take advantage of this new feature!

    It's a compiled app I bought. It is a Xojo app, but I assume that this version was probably created before 2014.

    Most probably is. The last update on the Mac App Store was back in 2011 so the retina switch would not work.

    Check with Bob, he might have an updated version for you.
