Hi. I’m new to Postman, and just trying to get it up and running. I’ve created an account and installed the software (64-bit version) on a Windows Server 2012 R2 VM.
I can get as far as entering my user ID and password, but then it hangs on the splash screen, where it says “Preparing your workspaces. This might take a few minutes.” (I went as far as leaving it there overnight, so I know it’s not just that I’m not giving it enough time.)
In searching this forum and Github, I found this issue which seemed like it migh be relevant. I’ve tried a few things from that issue and from other places, but I still can’t get it to work.
Stuff I’ve tried:
- setting environment variable POSTMAN_DISABLE_GPU=true.
- wiping out the appdata/roaming/postman folder.
- replacing child permissions in the appdata/roaming/postman folder.
Here are the current messages I get if I launch Postman from the command prompt:
Disabling GPU (node:9704) [DEP0061] DeprecationWarning: fs.SyncWriteStream is deprecated. Main~createDefaultWorkingDir - Default working dir creation already attempted 1563476008226 main info "Booting Postman 7.2.2, win32-6.3.9600 on x64" 1563476008226 main info "EventBus~initialize - Success" 1563476008226 main info "UpdateHandler~init - Success" 1563476008226 main info "RuntimeExecutionService~initialized: Success" 1563476008226 main info "ProtocolHandler~init - Success with status: true]" 1563476008351 main info "PluginHost~bootHost: Booted - 1" 1563476008509 main info "Bootstrap-models~bootstrap - Success" 1563476010440 main info "PluginHost~bootHost: Booted - 2"
I’m not sure what else to try. If anyone has any hints, please let me know. Thanks!
