  1. This fails when developing on Windows. The C: trips it up and requires an absolute path so it cannot be removed. Returns “Error [ERR_UNSUPPORTED_ESM_URL_SCHEME]: Only URLs with a scheme in: file, data, and node are supported by the default ESM loader. On Windows, absolute paths must be valid file:// URLs. Received protocol ‘c:'”

    If you have a solution, me and the world would love to know.
