Please assist in resolving the HOMEPATH error during app deployment attempt below:

C:\Program Files\Splunk\bin>splunk reload deploy-server

An error occurred: Could not determine user's home directory because HOMEPATH shell variable is not set.

Somesoni2's comment above revealed the correct procedure to resolving this error on Windows. From my reply above:

SET HOMEDRIVE=C:
SET HOMEPATH=\Users\Andrew

Clears the error for:

splunk reload deploy-server

And enables the authentication to proceed.

C:\Program Files\Splunk\bin>splunk reload deploy-server
Reloading serverclass(es).

Nope. Just gives the same error message. Idk how it can tell you that HOMEPATH is not set when I just set HOMEPATH
