Flywheel Local - not passing Mod Rewrite server set up check

Hello, I’m attempting to use Flywheel Local to host locally a Statamic site.

There is a check for server compatibility that I running, and everything is passing except:

ModRewrite.

My PHP version is 5.6.2, Web Server Apache, MySql 5.5
I have the sample.htaccess file provided by Statamic in the App > Public folder. (obviously renamed as just .htaccess)

Any suggestions?
