c++ maya plugin: does not match the current architecture

Hello, I am having ome trouble compiling a c++ plugin for Maya 2011 on my mac. I loaded the /Applications/Autodesk/maya2011/devkit/plug-ins/helloWorldCmd.xcodepro and compiled it and loaded it into the plugin directory.

When I try to load the plugin in Maya through the plugin-manager I get the following errors in the script editor:
// Error: line 1: Unable to dynamically load : /Users/Shared/Autodesk/maya/2011/plug-ins/helloWorldCmd.bundle
does not match the current architecture //
// Error: line 1: does not match the current architecture //
// Error: line 1: does not match the current architecture (helloWorldCmd) //

Any ideas why this is happening? This should be the simplest test.

Thanks in advance!

Hey Seth,

When it says the architecture doesn't match it means you're either trying to load a PPC plugin for Intel (or vice versa), or you're running a 32-bit copy of Maya and attempting to load a 64-bit plugin (or vice versa). Check to make sure your build settings are proper, or set them to build a Universal 32/64-bit Intel binary to get around that issue.

Hope that helps.
