Java Selenium Chromedriver.exe Does not Exist IllegalStateException

Here is the error message I'm getting:

Exception in thread "main" java.lang.IllegalStateException: The driver executable does not exist: C:\Users\Scott\workspace\Twitch%20Bot%20v2\bin\chromedriver.exe
at com.google.common.base.Preconditions.checkState(Preconditions.java:197)

And here is the code that I'm using:

ClassLoader loader = ClassLoader.getSystemClassLoader();
URL path = loader.getResource("chromedriver.exe");
System.setProperty("webdriver.chrome.driver", path.getPath());


I've already check the directory for where it is searching for the chromedriver and it's there. I'm not sure what the problem is at this point. Any help would be great!

EDIT: It was simply a problem with spacing in the folder name, but now I have another problem. When I try to launch chrome it says "An administrator has installed chrome on this computer...." What can I do?

Answer

You have to give your chromeDriver.exe file path instead of taking the path from the URL.

example:

 System.setProperty("webdriver.chrome.driver",
            "C:\\Downloads\\chromedriver.exe");
