I am unable to open Local by flywheel

Hey @byronwade, Welcome to the Local Community Forums!

The latest versions of Local (above 5.x) don’t need VirtualBox, so I don’t think that plays into this issue.

Have you been using Local before and this is this a new issue, or is this the first time you are setting Local up on this computer?

I have heard at least on other topic in the forums mention an issue with Windows Pro:

In that thread, one of the workarounds was to manually downgrade to the 5.6.10 version of Local.
