Just downloaded and installed stable release of Metamorphose, but after installing, the programm chashes. It indiquates me that a log file was created, but it's not the case.
To have a log file, I've to lunch the program as admin (right click -> "run as admin").

Here is the log :

Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "metamorphose.py", line 95, in <module>

    I can confirm this issue. It is caused when Méta is installed under a directory path that contains a hyphen or accent aigu (acute). Mine was C:\Program Files- Utils -\Métamorphose and it failed to start with the same error message as reported above.
