my ArchiCAD25 give me a bug when I exit from a project workspace since I installed new version, MacOS Monterey. Have you any idea when will come a update for Archicad who solve this problem or if it's ok to use the program in this condition?
Best regards VT
Solved! Go to Solution.
Graphisoft US says that you need a version 40XX to run on Monterey. Graphisoft Germany says that such a version may be released next week.
In general, Graphisoft US recommends to wait 6 months past the release of a new macOS before switching, which is impossible to do when you buy a new Mac as they can typically not be back graded.
@VladGoo See this article:
As @timdelheyeian stated, some of the international distributors have suggested on their web sites that an update may be arriving in the next few weeks.
It has always been ill-advised to update to a new MacOS until Graphisoft gives the green light. As Tim stated, this is a frustrating issue for people buying new Macs, as there is no option to have them delivered with the prior OS.
Replies acknowledged. Update 2 downloaded and as issue persisted OSX Monterey fully reinstalled. AC25 appears to be behaving as expected. We now wait for update to AC24 to solve crash on quitting. Let's hope this is the last I see about this as my previous OSX Monterey repair only worked for about 2 hours when it all fell apart again and 4 hours restoring it all should be worth it. And then one of these years we might even see Apple M1 version appear.
Thank you very much for the discussion about Archicad 25 on Monterey!
We have solved the Check for Updates issue, so you will be able to receive the update through this feature now. Please let us know if anything goes wrong!
Thank you very much Karl for pointing it out! Yes, Update 2 (40xx) will ensure compatibility for Archicad 25 with macOS Monterey. If you find any problem, I encourage you to report it immediately to your local support, as the problem might be related to the specific computer.
Feel free to let us know if you have any comments or if you encounter any unexpected issues with Archicad 25 on Monterey!
Thank you very much!

I have been using Archicad 25 on my M1 Max 16" MacBook Pro and I can say that performance gains are really visible and excellent. It runs very smooth like a desktop on my MacBook Pro. Graphically and Speed wise the gains are phenomenal.
However, I am facing very annoying issue with macOS Monterey. I have installed update 2 of Archicad 25. The problem is I cannot resize the open and save dialogue box. I can increase the width of the dialogue box. But once the width of the dialogue box is increased, it is impossible to decrease it back. In such case, using open and save dialogue box have become very frustrating, as I had already increased the width of the dialogue boxes.
Pl. help, if there is any work around.
Thanks & with Regards,

This is a known issue that you can read about here ... https://community.graphisoft.com/t5/Setup-License-articles/MacOS-12-Monterey/ta-p/309154
In the replies you will find some solutions.
But hopefully it will be fixed in the next update.
@Sinisa Lazarevic ...well, since the title of this thread is ARCHICAD 25 ... the answer would be "no", this is not the correct thread. But, there is no thread about AC24 70xx ... and Graphisoft has only announced the AC 25 update so far. Feel free to start a new thread for "When will AC24 70xx Update be available" 🙂
So I am running AC25 (4013) now on a MacBook Pro M1 Max and macOS 12.01. The latest installer had no problems completing the install cleanly. The Wibu Key driver works. However, I chose to load the latest version from Wibu's website, which I have done in the past as well, as Graphisoft often includes an older version than what is current.
For the most part, I see AC run just fine. There are some graphical differences (most likely due to Monterey, not the M1 Mac) but none so severe or funky that I could not work as normal. My current projects run much, much faster—as they should with this much horsepower. The 3D window in particular is much quicker but I also clearly notice zoom and pan performance in 2D. No crashes after the first day of work. However, I have had some issues with dimensioning and slowdowns in a file that has a very complicated mesh site. I need to simplify this mesh—on my MacIntel it had been almost unusable. So I am not going to use this as a best use case for a problem just yet. I'll keep posting if I see something go topsy turvy. Based on what I see in the Rosetta emulation right now, I cannot wait to have AC26 with native support for M1 and the internal AppleSilicon graphics.
Got my maxed out M1 max over the weekend and all I can say is wow! Its hard to believe this is a laptop. The speed is phenomenal and the silence...no fan noise at all. Battery life is exceptional. Best laptop I've ever used, without question.
AC25 build 4013 seems to be stable so far. I'll need the AC24 update when it is made available, but I can deal with the crash-on-quit problem just by never quitting 😉
Twinmotion also seems to be fast and stable.
I'm really looking forward to AC optimized for Apple silicon. It should be really impressive. GS, please make that a priority over any other new features.
In my business, the recent versions of AC have gotten into the habit of providing new features that have zero affect on our workflow. Apple Silicon optimization will.
I have not run that combination and I don't think GS is recommending that, yet. I am using Monterey only because the new MacBook Pro ships with it and cannot be back graded. On the M1 Max, AC25 4013 on macOS 12.0.1 appears to be working with the files I am using but that is not a general guarantee for your files, or hardware/ macOS setup.
AC25 4013 stable on my M1 MacBook Pro 2020. No crashes, usual wide open and save as display issue as before only thing that freezes and requires force quit is trying to switch to Redshift renderer option. Could be something to do with how Australian version is licensed to allow that option to work, none the less if licence is the issue warning message would be better than outright freeze.
I too am having problems even installing the Direct Link. All I get from the Twinmotion web site's Datasmith page are three bundle files for AC 23, 24 and 25 - but no installer. So right now Twinmotion is unavailable to me
AC25 4013 USA FULL

Actually due to changes to Twinmotion export tool flagged about six months ago using Twinmotion has changed with Datasmith exporter. Twinmotion works fine foe me using their installation method described on their site ie copying the bundles provided into import/export folder of each AC version. However for older projects you would have to install previous Twinmotion direct link tool for AC24 from their archived section. I have installed that package and it works as it did before. Link and screenshot of archived version below. Hope it helps. Keep in mind to read up on installation method and use of new exporter for new projects going forward.
