Default VPN split tunnel not working

Hi this is my first time here... due to my limited knowledge I wanted to ask you why my VPN isn't working with JDownloader.

I use ProtonVPN which provides the "split tunneling" option (it consists of re-directing traffic only for specific apps), so I selected DJ hoping it would go automatically but it was still using my default IP.
I thought the problem was with ProtonVPN (and maybe it is), but when I try adding other apps to the list, they all work fine.
However, when I disable the "split tunneling" option, JDownloader starts to work, yet I don't want to redirect ALL my PC traffic, since the VPN is kinda slow.

So I think there might be an application that prevents DJ to connect properly.
From what I can see in JD's settings there is an option to add proxies but my VPN automatically connects to the fastest server, and I think I'd have to insert all the IPs by hand.

Can anyone help me with this? I'm on windows by the way...

No idea about split tunnelling but I could give it a guess, maybe a Java process is what running JD vs the JDownloader.exe loader? I assume you're running windows? You should be able to confirm via Process Monitor or a Network activity monitor whilst downloading.

if that doesn't work maybe its due to JD using the 'default connection' (connection manager) it some how prevents the proton app from controlling it?

Don't fight the system, use it to your advantage. :]
