Neo4j Desktop hanging due to Invalid URL: --allow-file-access-from-files

pvillads
Node

I put this as a reply to another related item, but I am afraid that answering it with updates makes the original problem appear as resolved, which it is not.

In short, I updated the neo4j desktop application 1.4.11.58, and after that I have not been able to start the neo4j desktop application. I have no problems starting and using the database - I can use the console and connect with the browser without problems.

I tried to delete the .neo4jdesktop folder in my home folder and then starting the neo4j desktop app again. I now get a log file that I have pasted below. The system does create 3 processes called Neo4j Desktop.exe. One of them initially allocates around 500MB of RAM but then falls back to 110MB, where it stays, having no visible effect.

As you can see in the trace, one problem is the --allow-file-access-from-files in a URL, and another is accessing 40.64.135.1:12617. At this time it has populated the .neo4jdesktop directory with other information (distributions, graphApps, persist, projects, relate-data directories).

I need to get this annoying issue resolved so I can continue work on my graph app.

Here is the complete log file:
