Hello Josef

Thats quite strange, not seen this before. Are you running any overly severe firewall or antivirus software such as mcaffee or norton? Maybe worth uninstalling and reinstalling Flowcode to see if this fixes the problem.

I saw this once on a PC, but the problem went away and never returned.

I've done quite a thorough search about this problem and I've not found anything that seems likely. Ben's right - it could be some kind of aggressive anti-virus program that is interfering with Flowcode's interface with its components. I've also seen that this problem can occur if the PC is very low on resources.

Hi,

Problems like this are very difficult to solve without having direct access to the PC, so I don't really know what else to try.

Have you tried running your PC in safe mode and then running Flowcode? You could also try to temporarily disable your antivirus (etc) programs when running, to see if they are causing any incompatabilities.

All I can tell you is that it's unlikely to be a problem with Flowcode itself - we have thousands of Flowcode users who do not report this problem. More likely it is caused by an incompatability between Flowcode and another program you have running, or there is an issue with your PC registry/permissions/settings/etc.

I truly would love to solve this for you, but I don't know what else we can try here. Has anyone else on the forum had any similar problems and found a suitable fix or workaround??
