Splunkdj setup - ERROR

Hi everyone,
I followed the Web Framework guide to enable it.
The setup process asks you to specify where Splunk is installed,
I specified a path. I thought it was the right one, but instead it sais that the path oesn't exist.

The problem is that I can't find a way to fix the path, it seems setted and now, even after a reboot, the setup doesn't ask me for it and gives the error.
Any idea?
Thank you.

Your node & python path must have double backslashes. Splunk answers is removing them.

(Edit) Make sure it has \ in the text file. Then convert the path to a path windows understands and make sure you can open that path.

I dont remember if I added the path with or without the " but give that a try without the quotes.

{
"debug": false,
"mount": "dj",
"node": "C:\Program Files\Splunk\bin\node.exe",
"proxy_path": "/en-US/splunkd/__raw",
"proxy_port": 0,
"python": "C:\Program Files\Splunk\bin\python.exe",

That's the file:
{
"debug": false,
"mount": "dj",
"node": "C:\Program Files\Splunk\bin\node.exe",
"proxy_path": "/en-US/splunkd/__raw",
"proxy_port": 0,
"python": "C:\Program Files\Splunk\bin\python.exe",
...
}

what should I correct?
I at first delated it, but no luck, same error and quastion asked

You can edit the file .splunkdjrc_splunkweb to fix the issue or just rename/delete it.

I can't, every time I rerun I get the error, without the process asking me the question
