RM stops on Loading GUI properties step

Hi All,

        Its my first time with RM and on this forum. I've downloaded and installed windows version on my PC with Windows 7.
I'm not able to start program at all. I tried to execute program via script RapidMinerGUI.bat and I have the same problem - program execution stops on "Loading GUI properties" step.
While program is hanging I noticed two huge processes running in Windows: javaw.exe (290MB memory) and java.exe (111MB memory).

Would you please provide mi some solution how to install program properly ? I've re installed this 10 times and always get the same error.
I really, really want to see how RM works in practice!

    Hi,

    please try one of the following:
    - Start RapidMiner with admin privileges
    - delete the .RapidMiner5 folder in your user home

    If neither of these steps help, please post the content of the cmd console output when launching RapidMiner via it, see here.

    Regards,
    Marco

    Hi - thanks for the answer.
    I don't have this folder .RapidMiner5 at my PC. I tried to run program as an administrator and it doesn't work.

    Also I tried to execute RapidMinerGUI.bat as an administrator as well but RM stops during lunching on the same step.

    Thanks a lot for help - I'm pasting the log from execution here:

    Hi,

    RapidMiner needs to be able to create the .RapidMiner5 folder in your user home folder. However, for some strange reason java seems to return \\samlerhuset.no\files\
    users-pl\kropio\ as the user home folder, instead of something like C:\users\username\
    Is there anything special about your windows 7 installation?

    Regards,
    Marco

    Hi Marco - thanks for the answer. 

      This is how it is at my PC. This is home directory on my PC. What can I do - is this possible to install RM in other folder  ?

              Hi Macro - the problem "solved itself".
    Its connected with domain configuration - everything works when I work in the company.

    I was getting the same issue on a win7-64 installation -- gui dies on "loading gui properties".  I tried running just the RapidMinerGUI batch file and was getting a lot of errors like this:
    Warning: Unable to create user home rapidminer directory c:\Users\Defau\.RapidMiner5    (notice the "Defau")

    In order to fix this I tried:

    a) creating a .RapidMiner5 directory in the c:\Users\Default  (this required creating a directory called HELLO and then renaming it in a command window -- for some reason I can't create (dot)-anything there.
    THIS DID NOT WORK

    b) creating a Defau directory in c:\Users and then creating .RapidMiner5 directory there.
    This worked.  Rapidminer now starts normally

    I think youz guyz have some kind of string truncation bug when you try to create a .RapidMiner5  AND there is an issue with creating (dot) something directories in win7 enterprise in a networked environment.  For the record, I have no issues with win7-64 ultimate on a non-networked environment.
