All Apps and Add-ons

Why am I getting the following error when trying to install the Splunk Add on Builder on a Windows machine?

Explorer

Hi,

I made an add on using Splunk Add on Builder and exported the ".spl" package. When I download the add on from Splunk Base and install it on mac, the add on works perfectly fine, however, when i try to install it on a Windows machine, I get the following error.

I tried installing Splunk Enterprise on my Windows machine (as opposed to OSX). But, when I try to install the add-on, I get the following error:

Error during app install: failed to extract app from C:\Program Files\Splunk\var\run\kk098a9f174dacea.tar.gz to C:\Program Files\Splunk\var\run\splunk\bundle_tmp\f70e7af46277cgy7: The system cannot find the path specified.

Are there any extra installation steps I need to be taking on Windows or should I change any configuration while exporting the package from Splunk Add on Builder.

I would really appreciate your help please!

I had a similar error for a different app, the issue was a corrupted download. If you try to untar it manually does it give an error?

If you downloaded the .spl package from Addon Builder, it's nothing special as a normal app. Do these 2 paths exist on your windows machine? Please check your folder permission as well.
