I am using Rhino7 and Archicad25 on M1 iMac. After Start Connection, the connection status is green and there is no error information shown in Grasshopper, but no models are generated in Rhino or Archicad, and the material or favorites pop-up window could be not loaded.
However, everything is fine on my older 2015 Macbook. Is there a compatibility problem for Live Connection with M1 Mac?
I am experiencing the same problem. Any update from Graphisoft? It seems that they have absolutely not interested in making the Archicad Grasshopper Connections stable and an usable product. Seems to be always in a Beta State.
here the solution suggested by George from Enzyme, tested with few components
It works with AC24 and AC25 on M1 MAX Powerbook
If you have a brand new mac, and install Rhino 7 only, there was a bug in the GHAC that refers to the wrong Plist file.
To solve the issue, we need to navigate to
then rename the PLIST: "com.mcneel.rhinoceros.7.plist"
Please note that the Library folder inside userhome is a hidden folder. You can follow this guide to access it:
The work around renaming the plist file seems to solve the connection issue, but my Archicad crashes just by linking a morph into the grasshopper connection. I am using macOS 12.3.1 on an MacBook Pro M1 Max 32gb. I have tried reinstalling everything from scratch, but still get a very unstable connection and an unsuable workflow. Please resolve this.
Thank you very much for the report and I am very sorry to hear about the issue!
I started with a new file but couldn't reproduce the issue. I'm wondering if this happens with any file, and if yes, could you please let me know the bugID number when Archicad crashes?
Looking forward to hearing from you!

I can relate to the problem of @Jaime-airc_digital . After reinstalling everything, and also renaming the .PLIST as mentioned above, my Archicad Crash, even for a new file containing only a hatch. Here is the Bug report that I submitted to Graphisoft: AC25-2022-08-09-13-33-31-6860
I was in contact with local Reseller Abvent and IDC, they said they could do nothing for me and I should get in touch with you (Graphisoft) directly.
Please note that I works well with Archicad 24. Could you give me assistance please?
macOS Monterey 12.5 | Archicad 25 Build 5010 | Rhino 7 | Live Connection 25 | MacBook Pro M1 Max 64GB
Thanks for your reply, here is the Bug ID I just generated replicating the crash:
MacOs, Archicad and Rhino 7 are all updated to their latest versions and Archicad crashes just when trying to select in Archicad a morph to deconstruct from Rhino.
Thank you very much for sharing the report! I checked both crashes and they are identical. Thanks to Jaime's comment (deconstruct a morph), I was able to reproduce the crash, but the strange part is the crash modules in my case are totally different from yours. I have entered defect DEF-10281, however I strongly suggest reaching out to your local support for further investigation, as they will be able to contact our developers for confirmation of the problems.
Thank you once again for your finding, and I am very sorry for the issue!

HI @Minh Nguyen ,
Thank you very much for your answer.
As mentioned above, I already made everything I could do to communicate this issue to local support. But they are categoric: They can't do nothing on their side, and I should directly ask Graphisoft to investigate further.
Please, I already mentioned this issue to local resellers (IDC & Abvent) 7 months ago, and nothing improved. They only told me that I should hope that with Archicad 26, it should be fixed again, which is not satisfactory as an answer.
I am available if you want to have a direct chat about it.
I really hope that the defect DEF-10281 will be investigated by the Graphisoft team directly.
Does anyone know why this error happens on Mac?
What happens is that I need to use rhino-grasshopper and make the live connection with Archicad 25-26, I download and install the live connection plug-in and when doing something in grasshopper it is not reflected in Archicad, however, Archicad does recognize that there is a connection. I have already tried to test different versions and I have also installed the live connection plug in for each version they all have the same error.
In a post on this forum, I found that a possible solution was to modify the name of the file found inside the path /Users//Library/Preferences/) and rename it from:
com.mcneel.rhinoceros.7.plist to com.mcneel.rhinoceros.plist
But this didn’t work. Below are some images of what happens. I thank you in advance for your help.
Yeah. I tried to install and uninstall different versions of Archicad (24,25,26), also I install and unstall the connection with rhino-grasshopper for rhino (7,6) depending on the connection that exists for each version as stipulated in Graphisoft but the error continues as seen in the images.
