This is on Windows 10, I’m running the exact same setup on a different Windows 10 computer where it’s working just fine…

hi freddy,

are you using the same version on both machines?

Yes indeed! It’s even the same site files.

No, scratch that. The other computer was using 2.46, the new one is using 2.47. I tested on the other computer with 2.46 and it works just fine, I then did an upgrade to 2.47, and it no longer works, getting the same error as on the new computer.

So seems like version 2.47 has broken something, somewhere.

Edit: Just downgraded to 2.46 on the new computer, and netlify dev is now working as expected.

hmm, that’s frustrating.

Would you mind filing an issue on the CLI repo so that that team can take a look?

thank you - glad you have a workaround for now, though.
