Help me plz i just downloaded gplates

can someone help me? im having troubles starting the latest version of gplates.

That error message shouldn’t prevent GPlates from starting. I just tried removing my ...\AppData\Local\GPlates\GPlates\ directory and got the same error message (but GPlates started up anyway). Also the second time I started GPlates the error went away (because the directory has been created).

If GPlates is not starting then you could try installing GPlates locally using (from download page) instead of gplates_2.3.0_win64.exe. That way you can unzip to any directory you choose (rather than have it automatically installed to `C:\Program Files\GPlates\GPlates 2.3.0’).
