This means that you are trying to start the Kapacitor using kapacitor.conf as your config file.

run: create server: invalid configuration: dir must be an absolute path. To generate a valid configuration file run kapacitord config > kapacitor.generated.conf.

This is telling you that you cannot use kapacitor.conf as a config file because you have not specified an absolute path. If your kapacitor.conf file is located in C:\Program Files\Kapacitor you would use this command to start Kapacitor:

C:\Program Files\Kapacitor>kapacitord.exe -config "C:\Program Files\Kapacitor\kapacitor.conf"
