I use Mailspring in Windows 11. I was presented with a popup to upgrade. After allowing this, I was presented with a window:
“We encountered a problem with your local email database. We will now attempt to rebuild it.
\?\C:\Users<user>\AppData\Local\Mailspring … better_sqlite3.node is not valid Win32 application.”
Clicking OK near instantaneously presented the same window, ad infinitum. I had to kill the process using task manager.
Steps to reproduce the behavior:
Recreating the update prompt is impossible as the installation is now broken.
Cleaning out Mailspring directories under AppData\Local and AppData\Local returned nearly the same behaviour.
