    We have received reports of the Terminal+ failing to start the shell on some Windows systems. Turns out the issue is caused by some antivirus software blocking winpty from running cleanly. Specifically it causes the process to run twice breaking the needed pipes. So far we have detected McAfee and Avast antivirus doing this. See here for the initial report.

    WORKAROUND
    Right now we are actively working on a solution! If you are being affected by this issue please try the following:

    • A workaround to this issue is to add the following directory to the anti virus whitelists:
      (user.home)\.codemix\engine\resources\app\node_modules\node-pty\build\Release\
