I suggest posting this in the official stickied topic at the top of this forum dedicated to this issue. It’s likely they told you to post it here because of that topic, as that’s where users have been asked to post the information you just did.
It’s more likely to get seen there, as the post won’t fall off the page over time as this one will. Good luck.
