TextureImporter error - Mac OS Monterey 12.6

This is a little necro, but you are the goat, thanks this worked without any issues! You saved me from having to buy a new windows laptop for my university!

Hi guys, I cannot seem to get this working.

I’m on an M1 mac as well. I haven’t tried to install FreeImage by hand or anything.
I have dotnet 6 arm installed, and I installed dotnet 6 x64 as well.
I can get the mgcb editor tool to open, but I cannot get it to build. The same error about FreeImage happens to me.

I explicitly tried to open the tool with the x64 version of dotnet, and I’ve tried running my game with the x86 version, like this

/usr/local/share/dotnet/x64/dotnet run           
/Users/chrishanna/Documents/Github/HelloMonoGame/HelloMonoGame/Game/Content/ai_hat.png : error : Importer 'TextureImporter' had unexpected failure! [/Users/chrishanna/Documents/Github/HelloMonoGame/HelloMonoGame/Game/Game.csproj]

What am I missing? Thank you so much!
