Troubleshooting

  • In case an installation fails, make sure to update your command line tools in the System Update system preference pane of your Mac
  • If Homebrew complains about a conflict in the wix/brew tap, run brew untap wix/brew && brew tap wix/brew and try installing again
  • If installation still fails, run brew doctor and fix all issues & warnings
You can’t perform that action at this time.
