MCreator stuck at "Initializing workspace system..."

Issue description

There are more info on https://mcreator.net/tracker/issue/41094 Anyways, a moderator named Matej helped me a little bit. But their is still a problem in the program! The system seemed like it was stuck loading on "Initializing workspace system" for some reason. Now, I was not sure if it just needed time to load in or it was stuck! I couldn't get in the console because it happened at the loading screen. So I am pretty confused if its loading a long time or its just stuck, there, wasting my time waiting for 20 minutes. Their will how ever be a picture of the error so you can get an idea of it.

To gather more information on what exactly went wrong, you can launch MCreator using the mcreator.bat file in the installation folder. This opens up a console that gives us more information. Wait until the program gets stuck and then post the contents of it here. To mark text in the console, you can press Ctrl+M and copy it using the Enter key.

This bug will be fixed in 1.7.9. For now, you can go to user folder and remove mcreator.workspace to fix this bug. Please report back if this solved the issue for you.

I went to [users>--->.mcreator]

and found "gradle", and "source"(folders), and "preferences", and "userdata" (files).
