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:

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?

Hi @Daniel Ebers ,

For me everything was fine, I was able to set up BAMBOO as service and I could make stop/start using this service. But suddenly today, it was giving this "fatal" error  as Biswajit posted. 

Please help me on this, as it is blocking our further work
