CVX setup error on Mac Apple Silicon

I got the following error: mexfile is missing and then related a few more errrors.

Is there an MacOS for Apple version or am I missing something?

Thanks! I was able to set it up after saying many times allow anyway to Mac. For now, it does not create a hostname and ID for an academic license. Hope they distribute Apple Silicon versions soon!

Academic licenses for CVX have long been unnecessary not to say obsolete. You get an academic license for the solver and use that.
