Open your config file in notepad and look for the long line.

Hello,

I am thinking this might have something to do with Unix vs. Windows/DOS line ends? I don't know if Notepad.exe can do that, but "notepad+" can, and if your Windows has wsl.exe there are numerous tools there which can convert. Simplest would be to open it in wsl's "nano" editor and when saving, change the line ends.

no entendi bien, pero lo que hice fue levantar el secret y cargarlo en notepad + (ya que el anterior lo cree con notepad de windows) y me sigue tirando el mismo error.
Capaz que no te referias a eso, sino decime a que te referias?
Saludos

I did not understand well, but what I did was lift the secret and load it in notepad + (since the previous one created it with windows notepad) and it keeps throwing me the same error.
Maybe you didn't mean that, but tell me what you meant?
Greetings

I would delete the broken file and create a new one.
