- Mac Mini M1 (16GB - 1 TB) latest BigSur, latest XCode (12)
- AC 2 set up (with automated tools enabled)
- version 7.5 of Mac Builder
- Latest Windows ARM running Parallels 17, hosting b4i 7.5

- when deploying to simulator all is OK, but can't deploy to physical device connected through USB (AC 2)

- when running the builder without sudo
-> "code sign wants to access key "B4i" in your keychain. To allow this, enter the "b4i_default-db" keychain password"

error: "B4iProject" requires a provisioning profile. Select a provisioning profile in the Signing & Capabilities editor. (in target 'B4iProject' from project 'B4iProject')

Error: ** BUILD FAILED **

The same setup is working flawlessly on my old Mac Mini x86 (having done, redone and redone again all steps - including reinstalling the entire OS on both the x86 and the M1 machine)
It *should* be possible to get it running on an M1 (thanks @mike2ppc for your continuous support !)

This is what I always got on the mac when trying to build a B4Build-bridge app (running the B4iBuilder without sudo)

Trying to build the B4i project in Xcode and playing with the signing settings getting the same...

Found an error in the provisioning profile ??
