I was using Blink 3.2 on my old W10 laptop and now I am trying to migrate it to my new W10 laptop.
However Blink is not even starting after it is installed.
When starting the app, I see it loading for one second and then nothing happens (process goes down in taskmanager)


  *   Checked Windows Event Viewer; nothing to see
  *   Installed recent Windows patches
  *   Disabled User Account Control
  *   Disabled Windows defender
  *   Reinstalled and rebooted a couple of times
  *   Tried Blink 3.0 installer

Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "C:/msys32/mingw32/lib/python2.7/site-packages/cx_Freeze/initscripts/__startup__.py", line 14, in run
  File "C:/msys32/mingw32/lib/python2.7/site-packages/cx_Freeze/initscripts/Console.py", line 26, in run

This looks like a python error.
Please help
