Hi,

 

Read all the discussions of the last days here that treat the problem with the network paths. If your problem seems different then post the details about your network situation, the files and paths etc. you are using.

Hi Karl

actually this is on my home PC and there is no networking involved

Hi Karim,

 

Without knowing your details, not much can be said about it. You can of course read the according support article, compare your build number with the lists there and control if a fixing update is listed.
