Completely new install on local computer using DesktopServer (xampp)

After installing Types Beta version I cannot view site, nor 'add new' of anything.

Get the following error when trying to view front end of site:

( ! ) Fatal error: Arrays are not allowed in class constants in /Users/jillterry/Documents/Websites/_ Development/pedigrees.dev/wp-content/plugins/types/application/models/shortcode/types/types.php on line 39

Thanks for the report. Is it possible to upgrade to a higher PHP version (5.6+)? Some changes were made in 5.6 that allow for array constants and constants as scalar expressions. I'm fairly certain this will resolve error 1, but I'd like to know if it has any effect on error 2.

hmm, apparently not easily with xampp!!! I'll upload it online and try it there! Will let you know.

Thank you Christian, now running on php v. 7.0.23 - that did the trick.
