Note that this is for 2.10.4. Both 2.10.10 and 2.10.12 did not display the babl warning.
Both 2.10.0 and 2.10.2 work fine.
I had the problem with 2.10.12, then downgraded to 2.10.10. Problem persisted.. Updated Windows from 1803 to 1903, problem still persisted. Downgraded to 2.10.0, which works. Updated to 2.10.2, which works. Updated to 2.10.4, which does not work. Downgraded to 2.10.2 again, which works.
