Issues with .NET SDK on M1 Mac


Problem occurs when running the project NineChronicles.Headless.Executable in Debug mode in Rider.

Only the execution command is printed on the console of Rider and no initialization log is recorded at all.

I guess there is a problem with the .NET SDK.

This article was written with reference to this.

.NET SDK path on M1 Mac

architecture path
arm64(m1) /usr/local/share/dotnet/sdk/{version}/
x64 /usr/local/share/dotnet/x64/sdk/{version}/

Rider configuration

Change the .NET CLI path.

  • Menu: Rider > Preferences > Build, Execution, Deployment > Toolset and Build > Toolset > .NET CLI executable path

  • default: ~/.dotnet/dotnet

  • change: /usr/local/share/dotnet/x64/dotnet


Locally, many versions of dotnet SDK were installed for each architecture, and in this article, I confirmed that it was successful using x64 version 6.0.401.

And unfortunately, it definitely slows down the .NET process in Rider.
