C:\Users\kae\AppData\Roaming\ --> ThingworxStudio folder



Then reinstall via the link given or


My Installation is having the same problem, but the steps above do not rectify it.  I have de-installed the program and re-installed it.  Cannot get it to load.



John Buchalo​ Usually this might be due to one of the ports (3000/4000) already being used, or else any pre-installed node.js application. If possible, can you please reboot your computer and retry installing Studio?

I did try to reboot and re-install but it did not work.

Any other ideas?
