RStudio does not start up with R 4.1.0 on Macbook Pro M1 MacOs Big Sur 11.3.1

Here is the RStudio error message:

dyld: could not load inserted library
because no suitable image found. Did find:
/Library/Frameworks/R.framework/Resources/lib/libR.dylib: mach-o, but wrong architecture
/Library/Frameworks/R.framework/Resources/lib/libR.dylib: stat() failed with errno=1

Note: RStudio worked fine with previous version of R. Looks like a compatibility issue, but this is above my pay grade! Suggestions?

Did you install the Preview version of RStudio for R 4.1 compatibility? It also supports the Apple Silicon (aarch64) build of R 4.1.

Thanks. No -- I used the latest stable release: Version 1.4.1106.

However, I fixed the problem by downloading the R4.1.0 Intel version -- it runs under Rosetta 2, the Mac Intel to Native M1 translator. I will update RStudio when the new version becomes available and then reload the native M1 Mac OS version of R. For my purposes, the temporary infelicities do not matter.

And I need to apologize for the noise -- more careful reading of the CRAN download page would have led me to the solution immediately.
