How to install RTI Builder macOS Monterey M1 mac or Intel x86


Recommended Posts

I verified this on an intel and m1 mac running macOS Monterey 12.1

Compatible with macOS Monterey on intel and M1 Macs.

No need to install VMware or parallels and uses the native CPU cores on your machine. This is based on the tool CrossOver which is a polished version of wine written and provided by the company CodeWeavers. 

Note: on the M1 mac it appears the sphere selection area menu takes a few extra seconds to load on the M1 mac vs the Intel mac. just be patient.

Note:  this will not work with WineHQ 6.1 on M1 macs since the binary is a 32-bit and wine dropped 32bit support though crossover still maintains wine32on64 and will probably continue to maintain it

  1. Install CrossOver for mac. A trial is available https://www.codeweavers.com/crossover/download-links/
  2. Open Cross over and click the bottom right plus button and select “new bottle”
  3. Select windows 7 bottle, not windows 7 64-bit and create a bottle called “RTI”
  4. Once the bottle is created click “install a windows application”
  5. Click Select bottle tab and select your “RTI” bottle
  6. Type Java 6 into the application name.
  7. Select “Java 6” not Java 6 u 24 or another later version of java
  8. Click Install & Finish and click continue
  9. Walk through the Java 6 installer until complete then close
  10. Download the Windows RTI builder to your downloads folder: Process: RTIBuilder Download
  11. In the crossover window click “Install a windows application”
  12. Type RTI Builder and select unlisted application
  13. Click select installer tab
  14. Click “Choose installer file”
  15. Click the Windows RTI builder setup exe
  16. Click select bottle tab and click the RTI bottle
  17. Click continue or Click Install & finish
  18. Install the RTI Builder software
  19. Double click the RTI Builder Icon in crossover and run the builder

I'm also working on building some RTI dome hardware. Reach out via a DM if you are interested in learning more.

Hello, Ethan.

I am new to all this RTI stuff, but I am very interested in using it for my PhD research. I have a MAC M1 13" that is running Monterey. Thank you for posting this as I have been worried about if the application of the software would work with M1 silicon chips. That being said, I will try what you have posted and cross my fingers!
