It could also be OS related. I haven’t tested it past macOS 10.15.7 (Catalina). BTW, the issue with M1 can be circumvented if Rosetta mode is enabled in your OS.

Rosetta is not showing on your binary.
I think that if i can get python scripts files. I could  put them in the right place. The error is apparently just a “Not Found”.

I can see what’s failing. Even though Projector is a self contained app it still requires the OS provided Python 2.7 for some functionality. Python 2.7 hasn’t been included in macOS since Monterey. I think if you were to install Python 2.7 so the OS can see it in it’s legacy path /usr/bin/python Projector would be able to run. However, I completely understand if you’d rather not do this.
