Trying to take a live site down to Local to work on it. Installed the WP Migrate Lite plugin, got the downloaded ZIP. I run the “import” in Local and it gets almost to the end, asks me for my machine credentials, then fails, tells me to use a “Compatible Zip” file. The error message disappears quickly but if I click on it, I go to a support page on how to use import but nothing on the page talks about what my cause a zip file to be incompatible.
I can create a new file in Local and view, edit it. I’ve tried to remake the zip multiple times with different settings (with and without WP etc). Same result every time.
Not sure how to replicate for someone else. Just looking for some detail on a useless error message.
Which version of Local is being used? 6.61+6281 (Mac)
What Operating System (OS) and OS version is being used? Mac Monteray 12.6.
MacBook Pro 14, M1 Max, 32GB Ram.
Attach the Local Log. See this Help Doc for instructions on how to do so:

Local does a pretty good job of scrubbing private info from the logs and the errors it produces, however there’s always the possibility that something private can come through. Because these are public forums, always review the screenshots you are sharing to make sure there isn’t private info like passwords being displayed.
