Hey, a few options under the assmption this is for development:

  1. verify that bash has the node install added to $PATH
  2. use kibana.bat instead, bin/kibana.bat --dev
  3. run node directly - node scripts/kibana --dev

I would suggest the third for simplicity, it'll take batch/sh out of the equation

If you just need to run kibana, => past releases => bin/kibana.bat

Thanks Jon

The issue solved just with kibana.bat
