Genome Link - Error: invalid_request - Invalid client_id parameter value

I am following
Steps 1 to 3 are working fine.
In step 4, after I enter username (test-user-1 or 2 or 3) and password, I get error:
Genome Link - Error: invalid_request - Invalid client_id parameter value

Please look into this and advise.
Thank you,

    Thank you for trying out the tutorial.

    It could be because of some invalid settings. Could you double-check:

    On web console:

    Set redirect uris
    - ``

    Set scopes (whitelists) in "Authorization scopes" panel 
    - `report:eye-color`
    - `report:beard-thickness`
    - `report:morning-person`

    On your command line:

    Export env vars

    and then run your app. 

    NOTE: `` and `localhost` are distinguished.

    If it doesn't work, tell me your username of GENOME LINK. We'll investigate further.

    Thank you for your response.
    Please unlock my username LalitAPatel, if it is blocked.
    Please delete my username LalitAPatel1, which I created after LalitAPatel did not work.
    Thank you.

    Um... `LalitAPatel` has not been blocked. This "Error: invalid_request - Invalid client_id ..." is related to the app's client id and is not related to the developer account itself.

    Ok. I've deactivated your second account.

    Minor edit for Windows environment (Python 3.7.0):
    The URL environment variable setting in step 3 has to be done without the double quotes:


    With the double quotes, the OAuth will give an invalid URI error.
