Newbie problem: "Access is denied" when trying to run mos flash from GUI (Win10)

edited March 2019 in Mongoose OS

I've just downloaded the mos tool to try it out on Windows 10 with a [raw] ESP32 board I happen to have. I can run mos, point it at my device on COM52 and the build completes but when I try to run mos flash from the GUI prompt mos tells me:

Loaded app1/esp32 version 1.0 (20190318-115145)
Opening COM52 @ 115200...
Error: Access is denied.
/go/src/ failed to open control port

FYI, mos is being run as administrator.

If, instead, I open a command prompt as administrator and use the command line:

c:\mos\app1>c:\mos\mos flash --port COM52

...then that does work:

Loaded app1/esp32 version 1.0 (20190318-115145)

All done!

What am I doing wrong with GUI operation, shouldn't that "just work"?

FYI, not sure if this is related to the above, when I exit the mos GUI, even though the GUI disappears mos.exe is still running, I have to kill it from the Task Manager.
