Thanks for help.

Hi there!
sorry to hear about that, are you trying with v1.5.95 or v1.5.96?

It’s 1.5.96

Hi, thanks for that!
Would you mind trying with an older version (like v1.5.81 ) and let us know if it works out? you can find them here:
If it works, maybe is the installer broken for some reason.

Portable 1.5.86 works for me.

Thanks for letting us know. We’re working a bug that iimpacts Windows10.



Can you tell use what you see from the Electron console (CTRL + SHIFT +i) and tell us which version of Windows you’re using (32 or 64 bits)?


My windows is 64bit with the may update and here’s the console log:
