Error message: Global and user services could not be initialized. The application will close.

Hi Everyone,

after updating the Spotfire, I'm constantly getting following error:

I have the same error with a fresh install of Spotfire 7.11.1LTS on a new Win10 laptop. The answer below regarding the HTTP service did not help as the two changes that are suggested in Regedit had already been done (i.e. default win10).
