problem in open KNIME

Hi, i'm a non-IT and new user of KNIME trying to explore how it can help my finance operation function. 

Error has popped when I tried to open KNIME. Can anyone help? I have attached the log. 

Many thanks!

Hi Kim,

Sorry to hear about that! 

This is very likely a problem caused by a virus scanner. There are two options that you can try. Either adding the knime.exe to the 'whitelist' of known programs in your virus scanner software, or adding the following newline in the knime.ini file that is found next to the knime.exe:


the first startup of the KNIME Analytics Platform might take a while, whilst the virus scanner works, but subsequent launches should be much faster.



Thanks jon. It works now.
