I'm creating a form using AEM Forms (AEM 184.108.40.206 and appropriate forms addon from https://experienceleague.adobe.com/docs/experience-manager-release-information/aem-release-updates/f...).
Everything worked fine - I was able to create a form. The issue is with the Document of Record Preview. When I click "Generate Preview" I'm getting an error and stacktrace shows:

(Actually I started investigation from Signature step not working - it generates PDF as well and the stacktrace looks the same so I suppose that there is something wrong with PDF generation)
In logs, I can see the command XMLForms.exe which is called and failed. When I execute the same command, I'm getting "Bad CPU type in executable". I'm on macOS Catalina.
I found similar issues and the closest is this: https://experienceleaguecommunities.adobe.com/t5/adobe-experience-manager-forms/adaptive-form-with-x.... The solution was to install every missing library. But I'm getting this nasty bad CPU error instead of missing library error.
I'm new to macOS, but I've read that Apple dropped support for 32bit apps in Catalina, and looks like the XMLForms binary (called by XMLForms.exe bash script) is 32bit app:
❯ file XMLForm XMLForm: Mach-O executable i386
I searched the docs (this one: https://experienceleague.adobe.com/docs/experience-manager-65/forms/install-aem-forms/osgi-installat...) and it mentions "UNIX based" OSes (which I believe macOS is? 🤔). But some of the dependencies which should be installed are Linux only - like glibc. MacOS isn't mentioned there explicitly.
My question is: is macOS fully supported for forms?
Or maybe the issue is in a totally different place?
Thanks in advance 🙂
