I have searched for this and found several references, but they all indicate proxy issues and I am not behind any firewalls (disabled anti-virus, too). I did see one reference to 'flaky internet connection' and I can say that mine is less than optimal, but this is consistent. I tried uninstalling, deleting the 'leftover' files in my documents folder, everything that I can think of. Running Win 10 Pro. I had platformio up and running several months ago and diverted from that project, but now I want to try it again. Thank you for any tips that you can provide!
