Launcher | Launcher will not start
Confirmed task for development, HighPublic

Description

Unknown issue affecting a very small number of users.
When running the launcher, it opens the log for writing, appends two lines, and hangs. No window is ever displayed, and the main Electron process continues running.

What is known:

  1. Seemingly only affects Windows
  2. Drive letter independent
  3. Path independent
  4. calani: has only affected her external USB drive, although sporadically

Theories:

  1. Electron's app.on 'ready' event arbitrarily does not fire?
