Parameter must be an array or an object that implements Countable

Featured Lock Resolved Issue
I just installed Joomshaper Finance in an XAMPP environment and received this message. I've not changed any part of the installation. What has gone wrong? Thanks.

Warning: count(): Parameter must be an array or an object that implements Countable in C:\xampp\htdocs\Lions2018\plugins\system\helix3\core\classes\menu.php on line 258

to be honest I have no idea.
On normal hosting (no localhost) with PHP 5.6 or 7.0.25 I do not see any warning message.
Hopefully it's only warning, not real bug.
Share your localhost basic PHP settings.

Thanks for the reply Paul. My settings are below. The warning appears on the front end, so no good at all! But I see now it is also trashing Extensions>>Templates>>Styles>>shaper_finance - Default>>Layout. (See attachment)
