Initialization Error - Neo4J Desktop

I recently installed Neo4J Desktop version 1.4.5. When I go to launch the application I get the message below. I tried searching the forum but couldn't find anything related to the situation I'm running into. This was a first time, clean installation.

  • Windows 10
  • neo4j version, desktop version, 1.4.5

Hello @charlie.portelli,

Welcome to the Community!

On Windows, sometimes a restart of your system clears this up, but it could be another issue.

Make sure you have Powershell V5 or later installed on your system:

  • In a command window type:
    Note: If powershell is not in your path, you must add it to your system path
    Also, make sure that your system PATH includes: \windows\system32\wbem :
  • In a command window type: echo %PATH%

Hope this helps.

I hope you are doing well. I installed Neo4j desktop and I've been facing an issue saying "PowerShell was not found. The application does not function correctly without PowerShell. It is recommended that you install PowerShell and make sure it is added to your path." although it is already added on my "Path" environment variable. Please help.
Thank you,

Hello! I am facing the same issue as Mohammed. I have the updated version of PowerShell and I have the path correct in my environment variables. Anyone have an idea how to debug this?

Same issue here guys, verified both powershell and wbem
