Anything after Electron 1.4.16 will not work on my computer (Win10)


Electron 1.5.0 and every version after that will not work. And by that I mean that it will not be able to open any windows. For example, if I try to run an Electron project in VS with breakpoints in every line and having installed 1.5.0 or newer, the program will not be able to create a new BrowserWindow.

Once the execution gets to the line where the new BrowserWindow is created, the execution is just, halted. It skips over every other breakpoint, doesn’t execute any other line of code and just keeps on running. Electron.exe terminal is open, VS shows that program is running, no errors are thrown.

What could cause this in 1.5.0 and newer versions of Electron?
