    I am new to Hadoop and been trying to install Hadoop on a windows 7 laptop. The hdp.log has the following which makes no sense to me because the cluster.properties file exists in multiple folder:-
    CAQuietExec: C:\windows\SysWOW64>call C:\HadoopInstallFiles\HadoopSetupTools\\winpkg.cmd “C:\HadoopInstallFiles\HadoopSetupTools\\..\HadoopPackages\hdp-1.1.0-winpkg.zip” uninstall -Verbose
