    Generally, this kind of issue occurs when system not having decimal symbol '.' or, decimal symbol not set to '.' called Dot. Many this kind of issue resolving by changing decimal symbol setting and you should also follow the same for this issue.

    Follow the procedure:

    -> Go to Start button and click on Control panel
    -> Now select Clock, Language, and Region
    -> Click on Region and Language
    -> Now, click on Formats tab and go to Additional settings
    -> Now, Type '.' and click on Ok two times under Decimal symbol field

    After completing all the above steps, restart your PC and check the issue. It should be resolved now...

    To resolve this problem, use one of the following methods:
    Method 1: Change the decimal symbol setting

    This problem can occur if the decimal symbol is not set to '.' (dot). This is common in languages and locales other than English (United States), such as German (Germany).

    To change the decimal symbol setting, follow these steps:
    1. Open Control Panel, click Clock, Language, and Region, and then click Region and Language.
    2. Click the Formats tab, and then click Additional settings.
    3. In the Decimal symbol field, type . (dot), and then click OK two times.
    4. Restart the computer.
    Note Some third-party software may cause changes to the runtime locale of the computer and override the setting in Control Panel.

    Method 2: Add a registry key value

    Warning Serious problems might occur if you modify the registry incorrectly by using Registry Editor or by using another method. These problems might require that you reinstall the operating system. Microsoft cannot guarantee that these problems can be solved. Modify the registry at your own risk.

    Let me fix it myself

    1. Click Start Collapse this imageExpand this image

      , type Regedit.exe in the Search programs and files box, and then press ENTER.
    2. Locate and then click the following registry subkey: HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Policies\Microsoft\Sys tem
    3. On the Edit menu, point to New, and then click DWORD Value.
    4. Type CopyFileBufferedSynchronousIo, and then press ENTER.
    5. Right-click CopyFileBufferedSynchronousIo, and then click Modify.
    6. In the Value data box, type 1, and then click OK.
    7. Exit Registry Editor.
    Thank you.
