System Details

  • Local Version:
    Local 9.0.2
  • Operating System:
    Windows 8

Thanks for your question, @yousafraza. Local 8 and higher requires 64-bit Windows 10 or 11, so it won’t run with Windows 8.

  • Upgraded to Electron v25.8.1 and Node 18 to include latest security and performance improvements. This version of Electron drops support for Windows 7, 8, and 8.1. Users on these operating systems will not be able to install Local v8.0.0 or higher.

You could either use an older version of Local (see the version history here, such as 7.2.1) or upgrade to Windows 11 if possible.
