GUI install error

Have followed the steps to setup a node on my new Windows 10 PC. The setup program keeps crashing / ending prematurely once Ive selected the identity folder “\AppData\Roaming\Storj\Identity” No logs are created or left as the selected install directory is not created.

Did you create the identity with another Windows user or did you maybe even copy it from another machine? Your currently logged on user (which is used for installation) may not have permissions to access the identity location.

no its a newly created identity, created with the only windows account on this PC.

Hello @Adamthwaite ,
Welcome to the forum!

Did I understand correctly - you trying to install the software into a different location instead of default "C:\Program Files\Storj\Storage Node"?
If so - why?

I thought he just points to the identity files in the appdata directory while installing (but that should not acutally crash the installer).

Good point tho
