      Description

      Found using OpenDJ 4.0.0 RC5.

      Found this issue while validating the MSI package for which the default the installation is "C:\Program Files (x86)\OpenDJ".
      After installation with MSI package, I tried to setup an instance and the server failed to start:

      ...
      Validating parameters..... Done
      Configuring certificates..... Done
      Configuring server..... Done
      Starting directory server.....Error......
      Error Starting Directory Server.

      Please report this error and provide the log file mentioned above.
