Project Browser says "The Folder Path is invalid" when I try to make a new project

I use UE4 in a university lab, and the setup means I needed to install on a local windows profile and then switch to my own personal one. I can run the launcher, but when I attempt to make a new project it says that “the folder path is invalid”, presumably because I’m in a different windows user area now. How do I change this to a valid path?

Yes, it is still occurring. University lab tried to use version 4.25.1 would not launch got error message. So used 4.24 it launched but when it was time to click the create it is grayed out and states on left invalid folder path.
