Apple computers with new M1 chip compatibility?
« on: November 15, 2020, 02:29:16 PM »
I just ordered a  MacBook Air with the new M1 chip to replace my non functioning 2013 model. 

Will my Hex GS-911 & EzCan software be compatible?   I’ve read that software written for the Intel based chips may not work. 

Thanks
Brian

Hi Brian,

We are releasing a new build of our Mac software soon that is compatible with the new "Apple Silicon Macs" as well as the Intel-based Macs.

Kind regards,
Francois

But also rest assured that Apple’s Rosetta 2 technology allows Intel-based applications to be run on the new arm64 architectures, so you won't have any issues with our current apps.

Yes it does work, but you need to download Rosetta 2.....basically painless

I have installed Rosetta 2 but I still get the error when trying to install the software in Windows 11 (ARM) running in Parallels.
