Hi, my first message here 🙂. I am new to Prefect, and I was able to run my flow from my local PC (Windows, python 3.8). Now I am trying to build it to a Docker Storage, and I am getting this error during the health check:
Copy code
raise NotImplementedError("cannot instantiate %r on your system" NotImplementedError: cannot instantiate 'WindowsPath' on your system
Any ideas?
full error message is here:

Hi @Arthur Duarte, welcome! 👋
This sounds like it's related to the way Core is pickling your flow as it's trying to build - I'm going to open an issue on the Core repo because they'll be better able to triage this.

Thanks Nicholas!

Hi Nicholas. Do you know if the team has looked into this? Are there any workarounds you can think of?

Hi @Pedro Machado - no I'm not sure, if you're seeing the same could you also post on the ticket to bump up its priority for the Core team?
