Running Siemens LOGO! Comfort V8.3 on macOS Monterey with Apple Silicon

I recently installed Siemens LOGO! Comfort V8.3 on macOS Monterey on a 14″ M1 MacBook Pro. This is not completely straight-forward as Monterey is not officially supported by Siemens. Using some tweaks, I got it working anyway. Please be aware that I didn’t test all features, so use this at your own risk.

  • You will need the x64 JRE from Oracle. I’ve used jre-8u351-macosx-x64.dmg. Using a native (ARM) JRE will not work as the LOGO! launcher will not be able to find / load it.
  • In case the installer is not starting (especially for the demo or upgrade versions downloaded from the web), double-check the setup binary in Contents/MacOS/ of the setup bundle is executable (chmod +x).
  • Loading schematics might fail with a loading progress bar stuck at 0%. This can be fixed by putting bcprov-jdk15to18-172.jar in ~/Applications/LOGOComfort_V8.3/lib/ and replacing <string>./lib/bcprov-jdk15to18-164.jar</string> by <string>./lib/bcprov-jdk15to18-172.jar</string> in ~/Applications/LOGOComfort_V8.3/
