Hey Tiddu,

Can you provide a little more details?

Which version of EventGhost?
Which OS?
Did you specify a different path during the installation?

From the log it looks like there in a (python) file here that EventGhost tries to import but fails: c:\users\addy\miniconda3\lib\site-packages\numpy\__init__.py
Looks like you have some other python based tool on your system that interferes with EventGhost..

Thank you!
If you like my work, Image me a drink :wink:
