Hi @makstyle and @riaz

It’s possible Local got reflagged or blocked by something like anti-virus, security or a firewall after updating. Do you know if you have any of these in place you can check?

What version of Windows are you on?

You can find those files by navigating to this location:


The AppData folder might be hidden, so you’ll need to show hidden files in order to navigate to it. Here’s how the Local configuration folder looks for me:

The issue was fixed for me :smile: . What i found that issue is that, when i upgrade the version it installed in different folder. so i just completely remove the all the locals file and install again. while installing i just show the path again. And it works for me.

That is very interesting. Do you remember what those other locations were?
