unable to open Jira post installation from Windows10, browser with localjost:8080. Edited

While installing the atlassian-jira-software-8.4.1-x64 file, initially the installer said that I don't have administrative rights to this m/c and such some instances may not work message. I ignored and installed. After that when I started using from the browser with losthost:8080, it says local host refused to connect error. 

I tried to change the port in Jira configuration tool, but with no help ( 8100 and 8015). 


Well, I am getting this new error from the browser, while executing localhost:8100

It looks like your home directory and installation directory locations are clashing. Reinstall jira in a different other than C:\Users\palan\Atlassian\JIRA  

Thanks it worked. Looks like, I did not wait long enough for the server to be completely up and running, before executing localhost:8080.

Appreciate your swift reply

This was done for C:\Program Files\Atlassian\...

Restarted the service and JIRA was up and running

Thank you so much.
