Are you using the XAMPP VM installer, not the XAMPP native installer?

Are you running on an Apple Silicon (M1 or M2, arm64 architecture) CPU?

If so, then I suspect you are discovering that the XAMPP VM does not support Apple Silicon CPUs. See the earlier forum post, "Clarification on macOS VM, and nonsupport for M1 CPUs", at for more information.

Short answer: use the XAMPP native installer on computers with Apple Silicon CPUs.
