Compiling Plug-In for M1 Computer

Hi everyone,
Let me start off by saying that I currently develop plug-ins for InDesign.
Recently I was given a new computer with M1, before I used a computer with intel processor and macos 10.15 (Catalina) but now I'm using a computer with M1 processor and MacOs 12.6 (Monteray).
I specify that all the Plug-Ins I created worked correctly both on intel and on M1.
Now I have moved, with GitHub, all the projects created by the computer with Intel to the one with M1, I try to compile a plug-in it gives me this error.

This is the error, it's not for InCopy but for InDeisgn, i got it from google images : 

Startup Alert message after upgrading InDesign or InCopy with Smart  Connection installed – Home

Here's everything I tried to do:

  • The version of the SDK it's correct, because it's SDK v.17.0.0 for InDesign 17.4
  • The project is correctly signed

My doubts:

  • maybe changing the macos version could have made some confusion

I don't know why but every single plug-in I try to compile with M1 doesn't recognize them, I can't compile them anymore neither for M1 nor for intel.
While all the plug-ins I compile on the computer with intel work perfectly.
The project is exactly the same, only the computer change.

I don't have an answer but I suggest you post your own error screen shot, not something similar from Google Images. There may be an important difference that you do not see.

I got it from google images because I use indesign in Italian, in any case I assure you that the message is the exact same, simply instead of InCopy you have to read InDesign.

Anyway, I leave you the message in Italian

You say you have a working plug-in for comparison.

In Finder:

Right click the icon, then Show Package Contents.

Use tree view (Cmd+3)

Alt+click the tree triangle for recursive expand

Right click the header row to show sizes if missing.

 

Repeat for the other plug-in.

Put the windows side by side.

Compare folder structure, check for reasonable* file sizes.

Code should be a dark "exec" icon within Versions / A named like your actual plug-in.

*With M1 and x86, code size should be larger than only x86.

Btw the InDesign 17 SDK specifies Xcode 12.3 which comes with OS_SDK_VERSION=110100

/Applications/Xcode.app/Contents/Developer/Platforms/MacOSX.platform/Developer/SDKs/MacOSX11.1.sdk

I wonder how you got that going in Monterey?

 

Xcode 13.3 specified for InDesign 18 works on Monterey but "only" has OS_SDK_VERSION=120300

Echoing the suggestion made by @Dirk Becker please reverify that you are using the recommended version of the toolset i.e. XCode and the MacOS SDK. I have used both the Intel MAC's and just lately migrated on to creating the builds from M1 computers and did not face any issues. However, on M1 I compiled for CC2023.
