Hi, new user here, wanted to switch to Obsidian from Notion, but whenever I try to install Obsidian I get the following error: “Obsidian is running. Click OK to close it. If it doesn’t close, try closing it manually.”
If I click OK I later get another error saying that “Obsidian cannot be closed. Please close it manually and click Retry to continue.”
Searched online and found some similar issues but no solution applicable to me:
Using Windows 10.
The errors are similar in the other threads, the difference is that they were upgrading from one version to another while my case it’s the first installation.
I see no Obsidian process running except for the installer. Have rebooted since and tried again, same issue happened.
Downloaded version 1.1.9 from the Obsidian website (https://obsidian.md/).
It was the very first attempt yes, I don’t think the first attempt had a different error, just the same one as I’ve already mentioned.
Don’t have any other apps called Obsidian, the closest thing I have is a theme for Notepad++ called obsidian and games from Obsidian Entertainment.
