Failed to create composer project while installing symfony/framework-standard-edition

Answered

When I use composer in my windows Command Prompt to install symfony/framework-standard-edition it works fine but when I try to do it through creating a new composer project in Phpstorm it failes to create the project and stops cloning from git which leaves the framework incomplete. Error message:

[RuntimeException] 
Failed to clone https://github.com/symfony/symfony.git via https, ssh proto
cols, aborting.
- https://github.com/symfony/symfony.git
fatal: destination path 'D:\Allon\Documenten\Programming of webdesign\Php
stormProjects\todolist\composer\vendor\symfony\symfony' already exists and

fatal: destination path 'D:\Allon\Documenten\Programming of webdesign\Php

Anybody have a solution?

This is the whole progress:

From https://stackoverflow.com/questions/9864728/how-to-get-git-to-clone-into-current-directory - did you test that you're able to install the framework into a non-empty directory using windows command prompt?

It would be great if you could try that and attach the CMD output generated.

I tried to install the framework with Composer through the Windows CMD in a directory that had already a .text file inside. I got this:

C:\Users\allon>composer create-project symfony/framework-standard-edition test
Installing symfony/framework-standard-edition (v3.3.2)


[InvalidArgumentException]
Project directory test/ is not empty.

To be honest, not a single idea. The same actions on my Windows machine successfully create the project.
Could you please try to use a completely different folder for installation, and also download the composer.phar anew not using the existing one.
Does it behave the same?

It worked! Maybe it has something to do with my naming conventions. I'll change the name of the install directory to make it work when I install on the default folder. Thanks!
