Issues installing the local development server

Recommended Posts


I'm wondering if anyone has had success installing the local development server on a Apple M1 (ARM64) device? I keep running into an error, and I'm not sure what the issue is. Error log is below.

Thanks in advance!

Hello @ThisJustin,

Thanks for posting your question!

This error is caused by an issue our end, I'm sorry for the trouble. Unfortunately the Development Server does not support the ARM-based architecture your M1 Mac is using.  

I made a record of this for our Engineering to review, however I do not not currently have an ETA for this implementation.

Feel free to post in the thread if you have any additional questions!
