I've downloaded and extracted the latest version of WAB but when I run startup.bat I get the following error:



  return binding.mkdir(pathModule._makeLong(path),


Error: EPERM, operation not permitted 'C:\Program Files\WebAppBuilderForArcGIS\server\logs'

I thought maybe it was a permissions problem so I ran startup.bat as an administrator and now I simply get the error:


"server" directory does not exist

Press any key to continue . . .


The server directory definitely exists. It contains 17 files and 3 directories. I've deleted everything and downloaded a fresh copy but still get the same error. Node.js is installed from a previous version of WAB.
