Impossible to pass choice of application screen / infinite loading when behind a proxy / installation stalls at first app picker screen

:writing_hand: Brief description of the issue

My problem is that Station doesn’t pass the choice of apps screens

Hey there :wave:,

Thanks for reaching out!
“Resetting” your Station profile should solve your issue:

Tell us how it goes :wink:

Same issue. I’m actually a new user who has never used Station before, and on my initial install, initial first time run, tried to add my first few services and got this bug.

There’s a bunch of 404’s in the electron dev tools console, all surrounding missing files from

It would appear that app.asar did not unpack itself properly, as the only folder here is C:\Users\trobinson\AppData\Local\browserX\app-1.41.1\resources\app.asar.unpacked with only a single node_modules within.

Same thing here. I tried to make a fresh start to fix my problem with not working plus button and I stucked on choice of apps screen. Luckily I saved my old Station folder and it works fine now (except the plus button of course). I think something is wrong with the fresh instalation.

Are some of you on corporate network with a proxy settings?

I am on a corporate network and have had some proxy issues here and there before (without knowing the details… just vague memories from years ago) - is there something about the installation that might be getting blocked?

Yes, I am on the corporate network with proxy too.

Also on a corporate network with proxy and no luck getting past the app loading stage.

From the console:
Failed to load resource: net::ERR_FAILED

[08:21:09.555] Getting public IP and location did not work
Error: Query timed out

Having the same issue on a work network with proxy…

I just installed station, but after confirming my e-mailadres, and picking 3 apps, that getting started button, only keeps loading and it just stays loading. Don’t know what to do know to load Station properly. What’s going wrong here?

Hey @Clement_Dufour, @Tor_Robinson, @Anna, @spencer, @cupps, @Reem :wave:

This should be fixed in Station’s latest version (1.43.1) :partying_face:
Could you update your Station and tell us if it’s been solved for you?

To update, just open the preferences (from the “Station” top bar menu) and click the “Check for updates” button on the right.
