Hey @antjlo,
thank you for the report.
Did this happen in other version?
Have you tried reinstalling?

I had this issue in I believe 0.24.0, I ran the installer for 0.25.0 which I believe replaced it and I still get the issue.

Please make a copy of your local data. Then uninstall and reinstall to see if its still happening.

Just did and I still get the error

@Angelo What information is needed to find the reason about this?

Did you remove the local working directory after uninstallation? If not, it might be worth giving that a try as well. Please do note that, any non-synced data might not be available since we are removing the local copy of data before it is backed up to the cafe node

I did it before the reinstallation

I have had the same problem also
on a windows 11 pc

I tried to uninstall and then install it again but still the same thing.

Hello Friends,
I have found one solution to fix this!!

I tried uninstalling it and then re-installing it but did not work - had the say error so I found out that the reason for this was because uninstalling was not actually deleting the files in its directory.

So after deleting the files manually, and then re-installing it - it worked great!

To find this go to - File - Show Work Directory
This is the path
