I was installing Local by Flywheel and already got an error while installing cause the Virtual Machine could not be accessed because it could not be found (Path error). I run it manually and installed it. After I completed the whole installiation of LFW it was trying to execute node-x64.exe but I got a path-error message:
(German) “c:\users\torsten\appdata\local\programs\local-by-flywheel\resources\extraResources\node\node-x64.exe konnte nicht gefunden werden. stellen Sie sicher, dass Sie den Namen richtig eingegeben haben und wiederholen Sie den Vorgang.”
The exe-file couldn’t be found. I have no idea why and how to solve this. Problem is that the hosts entries could not be completed and therefore wordpress is not running.
I already tryed to turn off the firewall and any virus-defender, but this did not help.
I also have administrator privileges.
Any ideas would be very helpful as I was not able to find a similar problem on the web.
Sorry to hear about these issues - could you please provide your
local-by-flywheel.log file? See this Community Forum post for instructions on how to do so:
I’d be happy to take a look to see if I can spot any further detail that would point to a root cause here.

Hi, please see attached.
kind regards, Torsten
Could you try disabling your anti-virus, and then reinstall Local? The node-x64.exe file may have been quarantined during an update or install.
Let us know if that works!
there was no anti-virus software installed nor active while installing. The node-x64.exe is also still where it should be (I checked the path) - only problem is that flywheel is not able to find it.
Hey @Richi400 aka Torsten!
Troubleshooting something like this is kind of tough since it only seems to be affecting a handful of users.
I did come across this article, that looks like this can happen from time to time with Windows apps.
If you start at the part that says "2. Re-register Windows 10 Apps"
Can you let us know if that fixes it for you?
Hey, thanks for your support!
…but I am using Windows 7 …could this be the problem?
I have also a machine running windows 10. I will try it there too.
Anything is possible @Richi400 –
Let us know how it goes when trying to use Windows 10!
