Hi Rocky,

Here are some docs and a video for setting up Katalon Studio on Windows:

The key part is:

  • Open Katalon Studio and go to the Windows > Katalon Studio Preferences > Katalon > Mobile settings. Set Appium Directory to the installed folder. By default, it’s usually installed at C:\Users{your login account}\AppData\Roaming\npm\node_modules\appium .

If you’re on Mac, it’s similar, but the Appium directory will be something like: ~/.nvm/versions/node/{version}/lib/node_modules/appium where {version} is your node version.

Hope this helps,

– Chris
