please help do you know how to solve this bug/error?

I have no idea, but what I suspect is that somewhere in the configuration you have to fill in an URL (something that begins with http://... or file://... or something similar), and instead of an URL you filled in a Windows path name, beginning with c:\...

Then the software you're trying to run is interpreting the drive letter "c" as the protocol identifier, just like "http" is the protocol identifier of the HTTP protocol.

Check if the configuration is correct. Instead of a Windows path name like c:\mydirectory\, use a file URL, something like file:///mydirectory/
