File converter 10 on macOS Monterey


I have a problem with installing File Converter 10 on my Mac running macOS Monterey 12.6. According to the official website ( For Archicad 10 File Converter, the last compatible OS is 10.14 MojaveSo it should be possible, right?

The app is 32-bit so I got an 'app needs an update' error. Because Apple would like to have 64-bit version.

Do you know how to solve this issue?


I am trying to convert a .pla file from AC7 to AC26. It is all very new for me. Any pointers are welcome.



I don't think AC10 will run on Monterey, the file converters don't run on anything beyond 10.7, AC10 was updated to run on 10.10 but not beyond that.


I have the converter packages all installed within Parallels Desktop running Windows 11 in a VM. If you have a support agreement with Graphisoft I believe they may be able to update the file for you.
