hi,
I am new to shopify app development, I tried to install everything needed for developing an app, and i created a new app but when i run the shopify app serve, it doesn't install ngrok giving this error.
Something went wrong with ngrok installation,please make sure ngrok.exe exists within C:/Users/[username]/AppData/Local/shopify before trying again
Although the exe file exists there. I would be glad if anyone can help.
I tried the solution discussed in this link but still not working.

I was able to get it to work by removing the ".exe" extension from the file name. Make sure you have the folder option to view the entire file name then change it from "ngrok.exe" --> "ngrok" (no extension)

 

Then run "shopify app serve" and you should be good to go.

The file will be located here:

C:/Users/[username]/AppData/Local/shopify

 

as mentioned in that other post!
