The last thread about this talks about existing projects. I installed katalon the first time on my fresh brand new windows 11 device lenovo notebook and when creating a new fresh project without samples it gets stuck on Generating global variables.
The mouse has the waiting/loading icon. I can’t use the program at all then and I need to force stop the process under task manager
That’s a poor show for a first time user. Sit tight and let’s see if we can get a few devs to take a look.

Keep in mind most of these guys are in the far east, so they might not show up for a few hours.
can you share also some logs from your brand new windows 11 lenovo, or such feature is disabled in the mighty and shiny microsoft OS?
Problem solved: Just renamed the folder into “Katalon” and now it magically works…
Very bad behaviour though and I might try another tool if its working already like this and causing so much trouble before even existing
I have the same behavior, on window 11 with Katalon studio 8.5.5 on promise, first project and I’m blocked. Note I’m administrator of my PC :
ava.lang.InterruptedException: System could not generate internal.GlobalVariable file normally. Please check your writable permission in folder: C:\Users\RaphaëlLEBAS\Katalon Studio\DispomatchNG.
The path of your folder contains a character “ë”.
I doubt if it is safe to use non ASCII characters here.
Thanks a lot it was this … too bad error message is not more clear
I think that Windows OS is to be blamed, not Katalon.
