I kept getting the above error. The most logical reason I found was related to my computer. I had installed a Antivirus called spycatcher with an out dated 4.x version. This was preventing most of my exe’s to start or run. This is just a guess. Since I uninstalled this application and everything worked fine. Else the other application I installed was bit defender 4.x on the same computer. I think both of these made a potent mix and was not letting my computer function as required.
The reason with the error as you see is that the .exe, is not allowed to run or execute which in turn throws the error.
FYI, I tried all else like replacing the libraries and so on. It didnt work.
