    I'm just wondering which version you're installing and for which operating system? Is this v10.2 for Windows 64bit?

    Hi @rim,

    There is a known issue with non-ascii usernames in 10.2 / 10.3.

    As a workaround you could point your .RapidMiner folder to another directory by adding i.e.
    to line 158 of the C:\Program Files\RapidMiner\RapidMiner Studio\RapidMiner Studio.bat 

    "%JAVA%" %JVM_OPTIONS% -cp "%RAPIDMINER_HOME%"\lib\* com.rapidminer.launcher.GUILauncher %CMD_LINE_ARGS%
    would change to:
    "%JAVA%" %JVM_OPTIONS% -Drapidminer.user-home=C:\.RapidMiner -cp "%RAPIDMINER_HOME%"\lib\* com.rapidminer.launcher.GUILauncher %CMD_LINE_ARGS%

    Afterwards you would need to start RapidMiner Studio via the .bat file until this is fixed.

    Hi @jwpfau

    I had the same problem. I did what you said here, although I still not able to open it. Actually when I did what you said here I had to disable the firewall on Windows for some reason because it detected something.

    Although it is still not working,

    Please help me ASAP, I need to deliver an unuveirsty assignment with a close deadline

    Hi Krisztián,

    can you share a screenshot of the error that you get when starting with the .bat file?
    Best would be if you could start a new thread in the community.
