OpenRPA on startup keeps opening browser windows in a loop
I am trying to run OpenRPA on windows 11 but I am facing a weird behaviour.
First of all I installed OpenRPA to make it available to all users in the PC.
My user does not have adminstrator privileges and if I try running it, I get an error stating that it cant' access c:/app.openiap.io.db. The error persists even after changing the file permissions to allow full access to all users.
Finally I tried running "Run as Administrator" ... then the aplicaton seemed to start and opened a chrome window, I loged in to app.openiap.io but after logging in, the OpenRPA aplication window did not open, instead it kept running in the backgroud and opening chrome windows to app.openiap.io/login every 30 seconds or so...
Any idea of why could this be happening?
My understanding is that after logging in to the website, the OpenRPA user interface windows should be available to the user. ¿Am I wrong?

@orioldelos There is something wrong with your profile then. ( maybe an environment variables ?). OpenRPA will try and create a folder called openrpa in "my documents" and save a settings.json file, and a domain.db file for caching data in. ( default will be app.openiap.io.db )
It ask's windows for the location for this, I think ( but I am not sure ) it gets this by looking at the "HOMEPATH" environment variable and then add "documents" to that ?
So if you get an error it's trying to save in c:\ that means windows does not know where your my documents folder is. Try see if HOMEPATH is missing or wrong, and if it is, fix it so i points to "c:\users\username". If not, then I have no idea how to fix windows, so it knows where "documents" is. Sorry.
@allan-zimmermann seems like the HOMEPATH variable is defined when I open a command line....

@orioldelos maybe you should fix that.
