    Hello ! Forum, good morning from Europe / Spain:

    At home the installation was quick and easy with BootstrapStudio, behind a router-ADSL and like Windows 7-administrator.

    But at work, behind-sharing Router, Firewall, Proxy and Windows Policies applied, even though I’m local administrator of my machine, BootstrapStudio fails to start up.

    BootstrapStudio only presents a screen with its application border-framework and the background in white!

    I have looked in the application directory but can not find how to set BootstrapStudio beyond the default configuration. And I can’t either find any Registry-KEY configuration within RegEdit to solve this problem.

    Any suggestions ??

    Thanks a lot in advance. Best Regards.

    Sorry that you’ve run into this issue! As Bootstrap Studio needs to have internet connection the first time it starts, you will need to configure the proxy server manually. To do this, edit the shortcut to Bootstrap Studio on your desktop. Right click it, choose “Properties” in the menu, and add this switch at the end (outside the quotes for Bootstrap Studio.exe):


    Replace the ip address and port with that of your proxy server.

    If your proxy server also expects authentication, add this switch as well:



    Just perfect!
    Many thanks Martin.
    It worked on the first try !.

    Best Regards.



    I encountered the same problem, and the tip above doesn’t solved the probrem.

    Windows 7 32 bit
    behined a proxy server

    I added the proxy arguments to the shortcut, but it still displays white screen.

    I also tryed to boot the Studio from command line using the same proxy arguments, and I got the following log message
    (electron) ipc module is deprecated. Use require(“electron”).ipcMain instead.
    (electron) loadUrl is deprecated. Use loadURL instead.

    Any suggestions?



    Hi Hiromasa,
    Can you view that:

    I revised that Post at at Stackoverflow.
    I installed telnet from Windows 7 / ( Control Panel – > Windows Installation Utilities -> Select Telnet).
    From Commnad-Line, I tested that all was right with proxy: i.e. 3128

    I followed StackOverflow instruction
    And put parameters by Martin Angelov outside of the quotes of BootStrap Studio .exe sentences and with Administrative Privileges execution mode.

    Good luck!



    On Windows 8.1, I’ve got a blank screen too.

    I launch Bootstrap Studio with this command line:

    "Bootstrap Studio.exe" --proxy-server=""

    But I get the same error than hiromasa:

    (electron) ipc module is deprecated. Use require(“electron”).ipcMain
    instead. (electron) loadUrl is deprecated. Use loadURL instead.

    For information, I can telnet my proxy without problem.

    Any idea?



    None of the above solutions worked for me. Can anyone help?


    same as bejmnito!


    Didn’t work for me. Somebody help me
