I am a new user and am having trouble setting up Julia 1.5.3., despite following the instructions here: http://docs.junolab.org/stable/man/installation/. (I am using Windows 10 and I downloaded 64-bit (installer). I made it as far as step 3 of the installation guide. When I then hit Enter in the REPL, I get the following error message:
“Julia could not be started. ‘“C:\Users\Michael\Julia 1.5.3”’ is not recognized as an internal or external command, operable program or batch file. We tried to launch Julia from: C:\Users\Michael\Julia 1.5.3 This path can be changed in the settings.”
I also tried “C:\Users\Michael\AppData\Local\Julia-1.5.3\bin\julia.exe.” Apparently this is not the right file path either…I’ve attached a screenshot from my file explorer showing where I installed Julia.
Hello Michael. I use Windows 10 also. Please take this advice which I give here frequently.
Use the Chocolately package manager to install Julia on Windows
Please, please install Chocolatey then post here. i am happy to help
Can you check C:\Users\Michael\AppData\Local\Julia-1.5.3\bin\julia.exe is that really where Julia is installed? On my Windows 10 machine it’s under C:\Users\me\AppData\Local\Programs\Julia 1.5.3\bin\julia.exe.
I would check the Julia 1.5.3\bin directory verify that there is a file “julia.exe”. If you are NOT showing file extensions then it will just be “julia” by have a Type of “Application”. Then I would click the “Location” bar, the whole path should then be highlighted, copy it with Ctrl-C then paste that into the Julia Client config and add the \julia.exe. That should ensure that the path is correct and you didn’t typo anything.
