Mac M1 Arm64 compilation

Some of you compiled Arm64 for Mac ?
I tried to do it on my intel mac for a client of mine who has a Mac M1 just bought, but it doesn’t work, it doesn’t find the plugins. The xojo version is the latest 2020 2
where am i wrong?


Are the plugins found for Intel? What error message do you get? What version of macOS do you have?

And are you using plugins that have Apple Silicon support?

The latest MBS plugins do, as do most if not all the latest Einhugur. But you can’t use plugins with only Intel components in an Arm64 build. (I think!)

You can use older plugins if building just an Intel version. But building as Arm64 or Universal, I believe you need plugins with AS support.

Hi @Mario_Graziani

From the docs:

“macOS Mojave (10.14) or higher is required to build for Apple Silicon”

Is this the case?

In fact my plugins are the ones I use for Intel macs, they are those of MBS
I assume they are not valid to compile mac M1
I didn’t know you have to use dedicated plugins

Please install 20.5 or 20.6pr2 for this.

Thanks Christian !! I’ll try tomorrow

I think MBS started putting them out as universal plugins starting at 20.5 and higher. So you don’t need dedicated plugins per se; just plugins that have both Intel and M1support.

I have updated all the MBS plugins and only today I was able to try it on my client’s Mac M1 and it works great. Breathtaking speed of execution, I dare say
