.NET Support for macOS 11 and Windows 11 for Arm64 and x64

macOS and Windows Arm64 OSes include support for x64 emulation in addition to native Arm64 execution. This means that these OSes support both Arm64 and x64 apps, and by extension the Arm64 and x64 versions of .NET. The .NET 6 release includes support for macOS and Windows Arm64 OSes, for both native Arm64 execution and x64 emulation. Unintuitively, the majority of the effort for the project wasn't adding support for Arm64 but a large set of changes to support x64 emulation. You can see those changes demonstrated in .NET 6 RC2 Update for macOS and Windows Arm64

The complex nature of the project requires us to explicitly define support for .NET SDKs and runtimes, specifically for .NET on macOS and Windows Arm64.

In terms of operating system support, x64 emulation is a recent feature. It was first introduced (respectively):

  • macOS 11 (Big Sur; November 2020)
  • Windows 11 (October, 2021)

Note: macOS Arm64 is referred to by Apple as "Apple Silicon" or "M1".

Installation guidance

You are recommended to install the .NET 6 Arm64 SDK on macOS and Windows Arm64. It provides the best experience. The x64 SDK is only recommended for specific use cases, and is typically not needed, even for x64 development. The Arm64 SDK can be used for x64 development.

Note: The key missing scenario is using dotnet test to test with x64 emulation using the Arm64 SDK. At this time, you need to install the x64 SDK to run tests with x64 emulation.

The existing x64 and Arm64 .NET Installers were never built with x64 emulation mind and would clash when installed together. They required changes to support side by side installation. As a result, the existing installers and any existing x64 installations are incompatible with the new .NET 6 Arm64 and x64 installers. Supporting upgrade here is impossible (arm64 would have to remove x64) and doing so partially would make things much more complicated for limited customer benefit.

The following applies only to macOS 11 and Windows 11 Arm64 machines.

  • If you have never installed an x64 version of .NET, you are good to go.
  • If you have installed an x64 version of .NET (earlier than the supported builds listed below), then you must uninstall or otherwise delete them before installing the new supported builds.
  • If you want to be extra careful, uninstall all .NET versions and start with the builds listed below.

On Windows, you can uninstall .NET via "Add or Remove Programs".

On macOS, you must manually delete a .NET installation. The easiest approach is with the following two commands (from the terminal window):

sudo rm -r /usr/local/share/dotnet
sudo rm -r /etc/dotnet

On macOS, you might need to reinstall .NET 6 Arm64 after installing .NET 6 x64 if you previously had x64 installed.

Install directories

On macOS and Windows Arm64, .NET builds install in the following directories, respectively:

Arm64 builds:

  • /usr/local/share/dotnet
  • C:\Program Files\dotnet

These directories are added to the PATH.

.NET x64 builds:

  • /usr/local/share/dotnet/x64
  • C:\Program Files\dotnet\x64

These directories are not added to the PATH.

Critical note: That means, if you install a .NET Arm64 build and type dotnet from the terminal (or command prompt), then the Arm64 dotnet launcher will execute. This will not happen for a .NET x64 build, even if it is the only .NET build you install on an Arm64 machine.

Supported Arm64 SDKs

The .NET 6 Arm64 SDK is the first fully-supported Arm64 SDK on macOS 11 and Windows 11 Arm64.

The Arm64 SDK and runtimes install to the dotnet directory, same location the x64 SDK does on an x64 machine.

The following .NET Arm64 SDK builds (and later) are half-supported on Windows Arm64:

  • 5.0.403

Half support:

  • Can install SDK.
  • Can use the templates.
  • Can use the runtimes.
  • The CLI and toolset (like dotnet build) have not been updated and may have bugs that we are unlikely to fix.

For example, the following command is supported to run an app via x64 emulation with the .NET 6 CLI but not the .NET 5 CLI.

dotnet run -a x64

Supported x64 SDKs

The .NET 6 x64 SDK will be the first fully-supported x64 SDK for both macOS 11 and Windows 11 Arm64.

The x64 SDK and runtimes install to a new x64 directory within the dotnet directory, creating an x64 product hive.

The following .NET x64 SDK builds (and later) are half-supported on macOS Arm64:

  • 5.0.403
  • 3.1.415

Supported runtimes

All in-support Arm64 and x64 runtimes are supported on macOS and Windows Arm64. We had to change existing installers to install side-by-side with the Arm64 runtimes and SDKs. As a result, none of the existing builds of the runtime are supported. You need to install runtimes released in November 2021 or later.

The following runtime builds (or later) are supported on macOS and Windows Arm64:

  • 3.1.21 (x64 only)
  • 5.0.12 (x64 only for macOS; Arm64 and x64 for Windows)
  • 6.0.0 (x64 and Arm64)

Supported runtimes include:

  • .NET Runtime
  • ASP.NET Core Runtime
  • Windows Desktop Runtime

Unsupported installers

All installers released before November 2021 are not supported on macOS and Windows Arm64.

Where possible, we have added installer blocks into unsupported installers so that users don't accidentally break their .NET installation.

Private installs

You can install any supported .NET version (x64, Arm64, runtime, or SDK) on your macOS and Windows Arm64 machine privately.

For example, on macOS Arm64, you can download and expand a .NET .tar.gz archive to a private location and it should work. The primary challenge we needed to overcome was installing .NET to the global location with the official .NET installers. If you use private installs, then you have a lot more flexibility.

.NET builds for Windows x86

.NET builds for Windows x86 are unaffected by these changes. They are supported on Windows x86, x64, and Arm64 OSes.

However, starting with .NET 6, you can now do the following using the .NET 6 x64 or Arm64 SDK (on Windows):

dotnet run -a x86

This command will launch an app as a 32-bit x86 process, from an x64 or Arm64 SDK.

Notes

Note: None of these changes apply to Linux since its model for x64 emulation on Arm64 is very different. The macOS and Windows models are very similar to one another.

Note: VS Code and Omnisharp support native architecture SDKs, only. Omnisharp does not support x64 SDKs on macOS and Windows Arm64, nor are there plans to support that.

Note: The support model is asymmetric between macOS 11 and Windows 11 Arm64, specifically for .NET 5 and .NET Core 3.1. We have various users on macOS and Windows and are helping them go through this transition to Arm64 with us and are addressing their specific needs.

Hi there!
Thanks for the post, we tried yesterday to make dotnet 6 work with a colleague on her Mac M1 and were unable to do so, hopefully it will help us to get there.
However, we're unable to find a link to download the mentioned sdks :

  • 5.0.403
  • 3.1.415
    I guess they'll be available soon but can't we download a preview of them ?

@artl93 -- Oops. Fixed that. Thanks.

@NatMarchand -- Sorry about that. Those builds are not yet released. They will be released at the same time as the .NET 6 final build. I updated to text to clarify.

After install the new version, nothing the console CLI not works!
Is this issue only with me?

My Mac is updated and before I install the new version 6.0.100 was everything OK

I have never got this to work either on my M1 Mac. I need older versions in order to run tools that target those frameworks, like Tye.

eluchsinger commented Nov 9, 2021

Also having issues here. By the way can you make this documentation available somewhere more public? Finding this in GitHub is not the best way to go with such an important information.

Reproduction Steps:

  • First uninstalled the existing .NET installations according to this guidance.
  • On my Mac (Apple Silicon) I installed .NET 6 (ARM). dotnet works.
  • I installed .NET 5 (x64). dotnet stopped working - it's not found.
  • Installed .NET 6 (ARM) again - dotnet command is found, but I only see the ARM runtimes / SDKs (I don't know how I can't make it show the x64 ones anymore - dotnet -a x64 --list-sdks does not work.
  • Trying to run a project now using Rider, I get the error: Failed to load /usr/local/share/dotnet/host/fxr/6.0.0/libhostfxr.dylib,

marinasundstrom commented Nov 9, 2021

@danmoseley Now it seems to work. All the older versions, new installers, have been put in the x64 directory.

Tye (.NET 3.1 x64 self-contained, I believe) seems to run, at least. It runs a build on my broken project ☺️

The problem could have been that the necessary files were missing in /etc/dotnet. I had not deleted the directory before.

I will try this further and see what does work and not work. Hopefully, all of my stuff will.

The latest version of VS for Mac 2022 (Preview 3) defaults to ARM64. That is great.

One annoying thing, that someone else pointed out, is that the dotnet --list-sdks command does not show any of the x64 SDKs.

Better user experience and documentation is needed. Not simply dev docs on GitHub.

eluchsinger commented Nov 9, 2021

How am I supposed now to run the dotnet x64 version? I get a warning about the development certificates when running my .NET 5 project. Running the dotnet dev-certs https --trust command doesn't help - probably because that command uses the ARM version dotnet.

How can I run dotnet in the x64 mode when I have both ARM and x64 installed?

After uninstalling all .NET Versions and reinstalling .NET 5, now it is in the x64 folder and the command dotnet can not be found. Probably adding the x64 folder to PATH will fix this problem, but then I will have a whole lot of other issues as soon as I install .NET 6 again.

Right now I will defer installing or migrating to .NET 6 until these issues are fixed or a clear guidance is provided.

Serge-N commented Nov 9, 2021

No luck for me here. Such a pain. Dotnet 6 (Arm64) runs just fine. The moment one installs dotnet 3 (x64) and dotnet 5 (x64). The last to install become the default.

Screenshot 2021-11-09 at 12 41 20

For now, I will resort to running the ARM version and try to get only runtimes for dotnet 3 and 6.

@marinasundstrom
Copy link

marinasundstrom commented Nov 9, 2021

@Serge-N

On macOS on Silicon, if have previous installs of .NET:

Remove installed runtimes and SDKs:

sudo rm -r /usr/local/share/dotnet
sudo rm -r /etc/dotnet

Then download the latest SDK installers:

  • .NET 6 (ARM64)
  • .NET 6 (X64)
  • .NET 5 (X64)
  • .NET Core 3.1 (X64)

The previous versions have been doing updated with support for multi-architecture targeting.

Run the instwllers in the order of the list. From top to bottom.

Check /usr/local/share/dotnet/x64/sdk to see that the SDKs are there.

And also run:

cat /etc/dotnet

The directory should contain a file for each architecture containing the SDK path of each.

Now you should be able to run this code:

using System.Runtime.InteropServices;
using static System.Console;

WriteLine($"Hello, {RuntimeInformation.OSArchitecture} from {RuntimeInformation.FrameworkDescription}!");

Using either of these with the expected result:

dotnet run
dotnet run -a x64

If it does not work, then you might have to run the .NET 6 (ARM64) installer again after running all of the above.

Keep in mind:

dotnet --list-sdks

Will only show .NET 6 on ARM64. The reason is that the dotnet command belongs to the Silicon/ARM64 SDK.

Serge-N commented Nov 9, 2021

@RobertSundstrom

I followed the instructions, it worked but not natively.

Screenshot 2021-11-09 at 14 11 56

You may note that :

  • dotnet --list-sdks does list all the installed versions except ARM64.
  • dotnet run does run but always under emulation (x64) as per given code example.

Device details

  • OS : macOS Monterey (12.0.1)
  • Processor : M1
  • Target : dotnet 6 ARM64 (running natively)

@chunghakngor
Copy link

@Serge-N If you want to get it running natively on .NET 6, you'll need to remove the current symbolic link as your current dotnet is running on x64. You can check that by running dotnet --info such as the output is similar to below:

image

If it running on x64, then the RID is shown as osx-x64 and if it's arm64 it should be osx-arm64

If you change the symbolic link by removing the current one and changing it to the arm64. You can run the following commands:

rm /usr/local/bin/dotnet 
ln -s /usr/local/share/dotnet/dotnet /usr/local/bin/dotnet 

as shown below

This comment is doing the right thing: #22380 (comment).

I changed the formatting on the following text in the issue text to draw more attention to a key aspect:

There should be no reason to play with /usr/local/bin/dotnet.

@richlander how can I run for example dotnet ef migrations script --idempotent on a .NET 5 project when I have .NET 6 (ARM) installed?

I get this error:

It was not possible to find any compatible framework version
The framework 'Microsoft.AspNetCore.App', version '5.0.0' (arm64) was not found.

The only way I could think of fixing this without uninstalling .NET 6 is to play with /usr/local/bin/dotnet to make it point to .NET 5 (x64) while I work on this project.

By the way I am also facing similar issues for different IDE's.

Can I somehow make dotnet use the x64 architecture for the CLI?

@eluchsinger

My current workaround is to alias
alias dotnet64="/usr/local/share/dotnet/x64/dotnet"
So I can run dotnet64 xxx if I ever need some package from old arch


Edit:
Sorry, it does not work, I was using this to build, but just tried ef tools indeed failed to work.

So same question here, how do we run dotnet tools for projects in x64 only SDK version?

➜  dotnet64 ef migraitons add InitialCreate
Build started...
Build succeeded.
It was not possible to find any compatible framework version
The framework 'Microsoft.NETCore.App', version '3.1.0' (arm64) was not found.
  - The following frameworks were found:
      6.0.0 at [/usr/local/share/dotnet/shared/Microsoft.NETCore.App]

You can resolve the problem by installing the specified framework and/or SDK.

The specified framework can be found at:
  - https://aka.ms/dotnet-core-applaunch?framework=Microsoft.NETCore.App&framework_version=3.1.0&arch=arm64&rid=osx.11.1-arm64

Edit 2:

export DOTNET_ROLL_FORWARD=LatestMajor
The current workaround I found from another issue(dotnet/efcore#27787) is to export the above env var and run dotnet ef again.

@matt-goldman
Copy link

Thanks @Meowzz95 your workaround worked for me. I dropped the alias and the export into a bash script so I can easily set up my environment for .NET 5 when I need it. Hopefully we get a fix soon.

This is a great read and explains the differences between the two archs and how to set them up and use them.

For me, I started off installing the arm based dotnet tool and I have had the issues with the dotnet --list-sdks command only displaying the version 6.0.x and none of the x64 based runtimes which include 5.0.x and 3.1.x and alse net6 if you want to install it via the x64 and run it being emulated. For me, we have a lot of projects that are a mix of versions 3, 5 and 6 so until the migration for all the projects i'd need to use all versions.

In order to get this working, I used part of the above to get me started first off remove all the .net installtions from your mac using the commands

sudo rm -r /usr/local/share/dotnet
sudo rm -r /etc/dotnet

this get's rid of all the dotnet versions on your machine. The next step is to install the version you like but explicitly for x64 as the above states these will be installed in the following location's and these are not added to PATH for M1 mac's. So once you have installed the versions you want you then add the dotnet tool to the your path by running

sudo nano /etc/paths 

Then add the following path to the list /usr/local/share/dotnet/x64 and save the file. Then you should be able to run dotnet --list-sdks and see all the versions see the output from my system below

repos % dotnet --list-sdks
5.0.403 [/usr/local/share/dotnet/x64/sdk]
6.0.100 [/usr/local/share/dotnet/x64/sdk]

I have then got this setup to build a project in jetbrains rider by setting the following setting

Is this still true? I have a m1 mac and I need to use a framework that unfortunately still uses x64 libraries and needs a .net 3.1 runtime for some tasks.
Installing the net 6 x64 SDK with the net 3 runtime and adding /usr/local/share/dotnet/x64 to the path seems to work fine on the command line.

Everything also seems to work in VScode with OmniSharp without doing anything more. So I wonder if the quoted statement is still true, or maybe there is something that I don't quite understand.

Just wanted to add that while these instructions worked down to 3.1, installing any lower (unsupported) versions corrupts the installation. After installing 2.1.818 I get:

% dotnet --list-sdks    
Failed to load A, error: dlopen(/usr/local/share/dotnet/host/fxr/6.0.2/libhostfxr.dylib, 0x0001): tried: '/usr/local/share/dotnet/host/fxr/6.0.2/libhostfxr.dylib' (mach-o file, but is an incompatible architecture (have 'arm64', need 'x86_64')), '/usr/local/lib/libhostfxr.dylib' (no such file), '/usr/lib/libhostfxr.dylib' (no such file)
The library libhostfxr.dylib was found, but loading it from /usr/local/share/dotnet/host/fxr/6.0.2/libhostfxr.dylib failed
  - Installing .NET Core prerequisites might help resolve this problem.
     https://go.microsoft.com/fwlink/?LinkID=798306&clcid=0x409

This appears to happen because the older (unsupported) installers are still using /usr/local/share/dotnet instead of /usr/local/share/dotnet/x64.

A workaround I found is to use the dotnet-install bash script, after running the full installer packages for the supported versions. The following added the current 2.1 SDK to the correct location:

sudo ./dotnet-install.sh --version 2.1.818 --arch x64 --install-dir /usr/local/share/dotnet/x64

A quick follow-up. The above workaround works for dotnet test when test projects are targeting netcoreapp2.1, but doesn't appear to work for dotnet run. It still gives the same error about incompatible architectures.

We didn't do anything for .NET Core 2.1. It's out of support, so wasn't important for us to special case.

Hi, I am running an M1 with Parallels and Windows 11 Arm. As per this documentation it looks like arm64 3.1 SDK should be able to install. However, when I run the installer, I get a "This app can't run on your PC. To find a version for your PC, check with the software publisher."

Any ideas why this is and how can I overcome it?

Which installer are you using? There is no .NET Core 3.1 Windows Arm64 SDK.
