Not starting on window 11 "Error: spawn EINVAL"

Fresh Node and node-red installation on win 11 gives this error:
Node.js v20.12.2

Welcome to Node-RED

    at spawn (node:child_process:761:9)
    at Object.execFile (node:child_process:351:17)

Any hints what's wrong?

The latest versions of Node 18/20 include a security fix that has broken Node-RED on Windows.

We'll have a fix for Node-RED later today.
