Hi Edrian,

welcome to the Atlassian Community!

On first sight it looks like a permission problem.
Please kindly make sure you followed all the steps described in the installation guide as well as some additional information for let Bamboo run as a Windows service:


Hi Daniel,

I go through your link, I setup my users in my local, but still got same issue,Bamboo.PNG

I am using Version 8.0.5, I have tried alsot. Please help me on this.

Reading the error message I would think this is a permission-related problem for the directory the installation should go into.
Have you checked if the user which is used by the bamboo-installer is able to write to that directory properly?
