Hi @prototowb

Have you checked out this help article? We added a couple of Windows specific items recently that users have found helpful.

ah, yes, should have mentioned that. no effect unfortunately

Hi @prototowb

Thank you for clarifying!

Are you running other developer applications simultaneously? That could also cause similar issues. Apps like MAMP, XAMPP, or Docker for example.

Do you have any antivirus, security, or firewall applications that run simultaneously also?

Are you able to send us your Local Log including your Verbose and Router log? Just in case we can spot anything of interest in those. Retrieving Local’s Log File
