I have just purchased a Mac Studio, I am currently running Archicad 22 (I couldn't afford both the upgrade software and new computer). Mac Studio won't recognise my software key, although Archicad runs fine in demo mode so the actual programme is running well, and fast.
I had a hardware key- didn't recognise it; so purchased a software key- that still won't work.
If I upgrade my Archicad will that work or is the M1 Chip just not compatible?
I am currently running AC25 on a MBP with M1 Pro chip - it runs perfectly fine. Starting with AC26, there will be native support for Apple M series chips. Currently they are in tech preview, and you can download the installer here.
