Attempt to setup splundj - Error

Communicator

Hi everyone,
I followed the Web Framework guide and used the command (on windows)

splunkdj setup

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 doesn't exist.

The problem is that now I have no idea how to fix the error. Every time I rerun the

  splunkdj setup

Splunk doesn't ask me for a path, but it immediately warns about the non existing path.
Any help?
Thank you all.

I believe that setting is stored in a file called: .splunkhome. Look in the directory where you are executing the command splunkdj setup and remove or edit the file to have it work correctly.

After using alacercogitatus suggestion, I couldn't figured out wich was the right path. Maybe will be usefull to other:

$SPLUNK_HOME is the directory into which you installed Splunk (on windows $SPLUNK_HOME defaults to "\Program Files\Splunk")

so the path Splunk expected was \Program Files\Splunk, with no C:\
