I have made small changes to a JSON style file which is used to get all layers informations (scale, style, legend...) from an ArcGIS Vector Tile Connection. I want to load it from local source, or a specific disk location but I can't find the right syntax on Windows.

I'm following the tutorial from Morgan Hite and it seems to work on Ubuntu: https://wanderingcartographer.wordpress.com/2021/01/09/qgis-3-and-vector-map-tiles/

I tried the following syntax without success for now :

file:///P://Random//QGIS//Styles//OSM_basemap (idea come from https://gis.stackexchange.com/questions/326125/using-open-google-earth-cache-file-in-qgis/326132#326132)

As simple as it was, I just forgot to mention the style file... and it's all you need


For me it shows like this... What could be the reason for this? can you provide your style file?
