Mac Blueprint on Windows

Has anyone ever tried taking a blueprint created on a Mac and using it to provision a site on Windows?

Hi Carrie,

That should work fine!

Are you running into issues on the Windows side?

Thanks, Clay!

I don’t have a Windows machine to test on, but sent it to a friend to try. He provisioned the site with no problem but got a DNS error when trying to hit the site.

I’m trying to chase down the log file…

Got it!

In that case, it’s most likely a hosts file issue. Bitdefender is a notorious offender. It will routinely scan the hosts file for changes and comment out entries made by software like Local.

Thanks, Clay! I’ve confirmed that the hosts file looks just as it should after installing the blueprint on Windows, however I’m unable to view the site.

Any other gotchas I should be on the lookout for?

Do you have the specific error that you’re running into on the Windows machine?

Hey Clay,

Sorry for the delayed response. Unfortunately, I don’t have errors to report. I don’t have a windows machine so I’m troubleshooting vicariously based on the info I can get my hands on.

If you have a Windows machine and are game to try installing my blueprint, I’ll post it. :slight_smile:

Thank you,


Yup! I can test the Blueprint on Windows. Feel free to private message it to me.
