d, rename 'C:\ElasticSearch\kibana-5.0.0-windows-x86\plugins.plugin.installing'

Looked for C:\ElasticSearch\kibana-5.0.0-windows-x86\plugins.plugin.installing and there is nothing there

Hi @mmsood99,

does this occur consistently?

Do you have the same issue with installing X-plugins on ElasticSearch?

I too got the same error in kibana , but I don't have any issues with ElasticSearch.

I had the same problem on Windows 8.1 with kibana. Again no problem with xpath install into ElasticSearch. The xpath install into kibana consistently failed. Googling, others with the same problem turned off anti-virus, etc, which seemed to suggest a timing issue. So I rebooted, and tried an install with very little else running. Install worked.

@Rowland @Ashwini_Srinivas @mmsood99 thanks all for confirming this.

Could you please create a bug report here:

Problems are better followed up with a bug report than on the forum. We'll need to investigate this. thanks!

I got the same problem on Windows 10 with X-pack installation on Kibana. X-Pack installed on Elasticsearch fine.
