Not sure if this is the right way or place to ask help for this specific
problem, but can't solve the issue why I fail to open a .laz-file which I
have downloaded from National land survey agency. I am using QGIS 3.16 on
Windows and have activated LAStools plugin. When trying to open the .laz on
Processing tools --> lastools --> fileview I get the following result:

'C:\\M4311C3.laz', 'POINTS' : 5000000, 'SIZE' : 0, 'VERBOSE' : False }

LAStools command line
C:\LAStools\bin\lasview -i "C:\M4311C3.laz" -points 5000000
LAStools console output
Traceback (most recent call last):
