It looks like you have set the home data directory to a directory with an invalid name.

Yeah it seems like a pretty straight forward error. It can't create a path to files/folders outside of typical A-Z, 0-9 english characters.

   It looks like you have set the home data directory to a directory with an invalid name.

   -- the following:  The data folder is created by me,and set confluence.home=c:/confluence/data

The non A-Z/0-9 characters above the confluence-5.9.6 don't look correct to me.

What happens if you drop to a command line (start -> cmd) and type cd c:\confluence\data then do a dir?

Hey Nic, look at the filename in the command prompt above. It looks like the path is correct but the garbage collection log has picked up characters from the default language set from the user's OS.

Argh, yes, it's the log rather than the install.  That needs fixing, not the installation.

dear all,I need to wait for the new version?

No, you need to stop using broken characters in file paths.

Hi,Nic  where is broken characters?  ,Is the following characterimage2016-3-29 17:20:32.png

but,I can't find them. can you tell me what to do,  thank you very much.

In the file name - you've somehow located it in a place that has invalid characters in the file name for the log.  It looks like it might be something in the environment on your machine though.  What files do you have in that directory and have you configured the logging away from the defaults?
