PhotoMesh running on a machine with Windows Terminal set as the default command line application.
When trying to start PhotoMesh, the PhotoMesh application does not open. The following text is displayed in the terminal:
PhotoMesh.js started (http://localhost:8087)
In one of the recent Windows 11 updates, the Windows Terminal app replaced the Windows Console Host as the default command line application. As a result of this change, the Terminal app now opens upon launching PhotoMesh, and stays open, preventing PhotoMesh from starting.
This bug will be fixed in future versions of PhotoMesh. The available workaround in the meantime, is to switch the default command line app back to Windows Console Host:
- Click the Windows Start button and type 'Terminal Settings'. The Terminal Settings dialog box is displayed.
- Select Windows Console Host as the default command line app.
Note: If you want to leave the Windows Terminal app as the default command line app, use the following workaround: After PhotoMesh doesn't open, leave the Windows Terminal window that launched open, and start PhotoMesh a second time. This will need to be done every time you want to run PhotoMesh.
