Today I tried to activate a project for the first time. state updated itself at the beginning. The activation fails with messages shown below. Also I cannot successfully uninstall state to start over.
state activate stewartbholt/Perl-5.32.1
… lots of progress bars, looks normal except for closed log file messages…

Got a lot of these types of message about closed log file:
Error writing log message: write C:\Users\sholt\AppData\Roaming\activestate\cli-release\state-30112.log: file already closed
Could there be something wrong with my project? Months ago, I deployed it on another system with no problems. Today I updated the project to add:
Latest Commit Aug 6, 2021 Add Crypt::Mac::HMAC
and got a message that the build was complete. Then I tried to activate it on a system where nothing had ever been activated by state.
After errors, I decided to completely uninstall state and start over, but state cannot be uninstalled. Here is what happens:

Any help on how to proceed would be greatly appreciated. I need to use packages not in my production version.
