iOS11 and 32b apps

Postby JosepM » Tue Aug 29, 2017 12:09 pm


I would like know what is the minimum Livecode version to compile as 64b ready for iOS11.
I have an old app made on LC6 that need be compiled.

Thanks in advance,

Hi Josep,

Support for 64bit iOS apps was first added in LiveCode 6.7.2.

You can verify that your standalone includes a 64bit slice using the "file" command. Just type the following in a terminal:

Code: Select all
file /path/to/

If you get something like:

Code: Select all
panoss-MBP:~ panos$ file /Users/panos/Desktop/myApp1/
/Users/panos/Desktop/myApp1/ Mach-O universal binary with 2 architectures: [arm_v7: Mach-O executable arm_v7] [arm64]
/Users/panos/Desktop/myApp1/ (for architecture armv7):   Mach-O executable arm_v7
/Users/panos/Desktop/myApp1/ (for architecture arm64):   Mach-O 64-bit executable arm64
panoss-MBP:~ panos$

then it means your iOS standalone does support 64bit.
