Tried installing local 5.9.2 on windows 10 thinking it will work seamlessly as it worked on my mac, everything seemed to go fine until I tried to create a website. I get a long error that I cannot seem to understand.
The error displays when I try to create a site from the main menu. Specifically it occurs when the site setup process tries to install wordpress.
Does this happen for all sites in Local, or just one in particular?
Are you able to create a new, plain WordPress site in Local and access it in a Browser?
Which version of Local is being used?
What Operating System (OS) and OS version is being used?
Windows 10 Home
Attach the Local Log:

I use Local in a course I teach for WordPress and one thing I’ve noticed happen with my students who are using Windows is you need to point your site path to the main C: drive on your HDD. If you are trying to create a site and the path is pointing to your desktop or a cloud drive (i.e. OneDrive) this error will occur.
Can you confirm if this is the case?
First of all thank you for the reply,
Secondly, I do not believe that I am pointing to my desktop or a cloud drive anywhere throughout the initiation of my site. Here is the error message I get:
Can you confirm the path you’re using to create new sites?
The path is follows: C:\Users\hassa\Local Sites\newsitehere
