Description

Just setup I2P 0.9.16-6 on windows 8.1 x64.

  1. I installed service. IMHO there was no real sign of I2P already running after install.

We should somehow start the router console in this situation or make clear I2P is already running.

  1. The install as a service has some issues. Hard to get the path were the files are, as it is not existant neither available. <-- Wrapper Stopped

2014/11/21 16:04:38 | Unable to write to the configured log directory: C:\Windows\system32\config\systemprofile\AppData?\Roaming\i2p (The system cannot find the path specified. (0x3))
2014/11/21 16:04:38 | The directory does not exist.
2014/11/21 16:04:38 | Unable to write to the configured log file: C:\Windows\system32\config\systemprofile\AppData?\Roaming\i2p\wrapper.log (The system cannot find the path specified. (0x3))
2014/11/21 16:04:38 | Falling back to the default file in the current working directory: wrapper.log
2014/11/21 16:04:38 | --> Wrapper Started as Service

But router logs tells me: File location: C:\ProgramData?\Application Data\i2p\logs\log-router-1.txt
I cannot access the application data folder.

I put my i2pupdate.zip into the C:\program files\i2p folder and I2P updated.

User experience could be enhanced with this setup.

On the good side: I did open ports in firewall, I did set fixed IPv4 and IPv6 address in windows, ands I2P works flawless on both protocols. Also I started a torrent and 2 days after I got >1000 active peers.
