I installed sagemath on windows but get the following on running

bash.exe: warning: could not find /tmp, please create!
bash.exe: warning: could not find /tmp, please create!
│ SageMath version 9.3, Release Date: 2021-05-09                     │
│ Using Python 3.7.10. Type "help()" for help.                       │
bash.exe: warning: could not find /tmp, please create!

I have created the tmp folder, added the path to my system and user environment variables. It still does not work. This is in Windows 11. Please advise.

Je n'ai plus eu l'erreur après avoir créé un dossier tmp dans C:\Program Files\SageMath 9.3\runtime\tmp. SageMath 9.3 Notebook se lance sans erreur sur windows 11 et fonctionne normalement depuis.
