I finally caved in and started using a Mac (Intel Chip - not M1) thinking the Pepper Emulator might work on it. Well, it doesn't.
It loads quickly up to 95%, the tablet emulator is visible and looks normal. The loading process then slows down but keeps going up to 99% and then it stalls.
However, there is no robot emulator. Error in IDE states: "Failed to start monitoring emulator-5556".
I am on Studio Version 4.2.2, as this used to be the most stable version to work with for Pepper programming on windows. Has anyone experienced this and knows how to fix it?
