Error starting kibana win 10 - events.js:174

Hi All

ELK NOOB here. Been on google for some time now but im unable to get the issue sorted.

Windows 10 FULLY updated 64x
Latest java JDK 12.0.1 64x
JAVA_HOME is set the c:\Java\jdk-12.0.1
PATH: c:\Java\jdk-12.0.1\bin

I run the ealsticsearch bat file and it starts
When i then go to my browser http://localhost:9200 i get the correct output.

I then run the Kibana.bat and this is my output

throw er; // Unhandled 'error' event

Error: EISDIR: illegal operation on a directory, write
Emitted 'error' event at:
at WriteStream.onerror (_stream_readable.js:691:12)
at WriteStream.emit (events.js:189:13)
at onwriteError (_stream_writable.js:431:12)
at onwrite (_stream_writable.js:456:5)
at lazyFs.write (internal/fs/streams.js:300:14)
at FSReqWrap.wrapper [as oncomplete] (fs.js:505:5)
Press any key to continue . . .

I have searched high and low and tried giving full permissions for the logs destination and i have tried reinstalling. Those are the two top resolutions when i google.

ANY help will be much appreciated.

@Elmo_Heyns thats strange. Are you able to start kibana by just calling manually the same things the bat is calling itself?


I tried both and both was giving me the same issue.

I have now decided to move to the docker solution instead.
