UE5 Bridge Background service error & cannot change preference pathAnswered
I am running UE5 on a Mac with M1 Max. I can open the Bridge within Unreal, but I get the 'Failed to restart background service" error. I've done some digging and tried some of the solutions found online; but when I try to change the Library path from preferences I cannot save the changes, and the only way I can close that window is by clicking the X in the right corner (which obviously doesn't save the new path). Now, I tried opening UE5 with root privileges through a terminal, which doesn't fix anything but I do see an error repeated in the terminal which reads:
UnrealEditor[56736:10980846] [UE] [2022.07.25-07.56.23:977]LogHAL: Warning: Failed to launch Tool. (/Users/Shared/Epic Games/UE_5.0/Engine/Plugins/Bridge/ThirdParty/Mac/node-bifrost.app)
I went into that directory, and no such file exists. If it's supposed to, I cannot find it anywhere reasonable. Not sure if these issues are entirely related, but I could definitely use some help.
