I am trying to figure out how I can determine during runtime whether my app is running natively on the M1 processor or is using Rosetta translation. I have a universal app that works well, but seems to be defaulting to Rosetta even though I have not checked the “Run using Rosetta” option.
This doesn’t need to be in the Testers channel.
If TargetMacOS Then If SystemInformationMBS.isARM Then MsgBox "Running ARM version on ARM CPU." Elseif SystemInformationMBS.IsTranslated Then MsgBox "Running Intel version on ARM CPU." Else MsgBox "Running Intel version on Intel CPU." End If End If
I got into a bit of trouble for posting something involving a beta release under general a few years back, so I default to Testers whenever it involves a beta. I do agree this also applies to 2020R21, however.
See Detect if running under rosetta - #4 by Mike_D for other methods.
