Big Sur is a major version of macOS and the first version to support Macs with ARM-based processors, in addition to Intel-based processors. In response to this, Revenera will deliver a Universal 2 toolkit for the FlexNet Publisher product. The Universal 2 toolkit will contain support for both Native ARM and Intel. The Universal 2 toolkit is planned for mid-2021.
For Big Sur on Intel-based processors, customers can use the existing FlexNet Publisher x64_mac10 toolkits until the Universal 2 toolkit is delivered.
For Big Sur on ARM-based processors, a possible workaround is to use the existing FlexNet Publisher x64_mac10 toolkit in Rosetta 2 mode. Note we have not confirmed if the existing FlexNet Publisher x64_mac10 toolkit will work on Big Sur (ARM Emulated). For customers using Big Sur on ARM Emulated or ARM Native, we recommend waiting for the delivery of the Universal 2 toolkit.
If you have any additional question about FlexNet Publisher’s Big Sur support, please contact the Revenera Technical Support team and they will assist you.
