"Server" directory not found.

Please let me know in case I missed anything.

Ensure the zipped file is fully downloaded. Do you See Server sub-folder inside the WebAppBuilderForArcGIS folder?

The IT policy within the organization was blocking NODE_X64 to be executed and then I tried with administrative previlges whihc gave the "server" not found error.

The issue has been resolved once IT have updated the policy.

Thank you.

Thanks for this thread Abhay, and Jayanta for your response. 

I also had this problem. Our IT identified it a firewall issue. We didn't verify that because it worked when I set up WAB as a Windows service as per the following instructions. Hope this workaround helps someone.

@DanCronin Where should I install the Node.js file at?

Thanks Jayanta! That worked for me. I wonder why the server sub-folder didn't download the first time. Regardless, I tried it again and it worked.
