We do not have a native macOS installer for the Bot Agent. You will either need to run this on a Windows PC or in virtualization (e.g., Parallels, Virtual Box, etc.) on your Mac.

@Aaron.Gleason Any idea how soon this could be worked on, really anticipated the upcoming bootcamp, and this just feels unfair though…

I would send this inquiry to our support team for a more definitive answer than I can provide: support@automationanywhere.com

@TeJ10 I use an M1 Macbook as my daily driver for doing work + automation development. I’ve installed and run Parallels with great success - to the point that if you were watching my screen, you wouldnt know it was actually all running virtually on a mac. 

You just have to install Windows (VERY easy, parallels walks you through the entire process) and then install Automation Anywhere’s Bot Agent on your Parallels virtual machine.
