OS Name/Version: windows 10 education version 1909 os build 18363.720

Product Name/Version: AMPService

Problem Description: You cannot start instances you do not own as a non-root user. You are LAPTOP-MPMP2DOJ$ and this instance belongs to WIN-G8PJ29RPR4E$. Do not attempt to change the owner of an instance, this will damage your installation. Switch to the correct user and try again.

Steps to reproduce: I got a free laptop from my college but it is the lowest spec machine I have ever had so I figured I would throw a minecraft server on it and stick it somewhere out of the way and forget about it. I did the initial setup on the computer and it did not have JAVA so I install it and it does not have the correct path so I figured that if I restart the machine it will fix its self as it usually does with java. Windows decides to update and when I get back to the desktop and try to start the server again I get the above error message. Google is not being helpfull as I may now be to far down the rabbit hole to see light.

Actions taken to resolve so far: Literally no clue where to even start. I restarted the machine and this is

It looks like your computer has changed its name at some point which has confused things.

In this case it will be necessary to edit Instances.json manually (you can find it in the datastore directory) and replace the old machine name (WIN.....) with the new one (LAPTOP......) - Then it should behave again.
