Problem mit Verzeichnis für 'export' at start of LM 4

Not a Problem

Hi,

i have a little problem at starting LM 4. Sometimes, but not always, there ist a red messagebox saying 'Problem mit Verzeichnis für 'export' at the start of LM4.

What did I do:

(1.) Making a backup of my settings on my old Galaxy Note 4, running Android 6.0.1 Stock ROM. Not quite sure anymore but it maybe a backup of the latest Locus 3.x version. LM 4 could be possible too. I have installed both versions of LM.


(2.) Installing the backup of the settings in LM 4 on my new Galyxy Note 20 Ultra, running Android 11 Stock ROM.

(3.) Setting the standard folder to 'Private folder in internal memory' for LM 4 as recommended running Android 11.

(4.) Installing the addons 'Geocaching4Locus' and 'Locus - multi cache solver' for LM 4.


Maybe I restarted LM 4 a few times between the steps. I do not rember.

But since that I get the message 'Problem mit Verzeichnis für 'export' sometimes, not always, starting LM 4.

I already corrected the now invalid path for exported tracks. In the next step I will correct the path for exported waypoints too. I am expecting, this path maybe invalid too and might causes the problem.


But it might be a problem causes by the installed addons too. I. e. they might not be ready to discover / use the new 'Private folder in internal memory' of LM 4. Just a guess.


LM 4 itself seems to run normal after the message disapears. But a little insecurity remains.

Hi,

we are releasing a bugfix 4.3.3. shortly. Please wait for the update, test the issue and when it still occurs on the next version, we'll go on dealing with it.

Hi Michal,

just installed LM 4.3.3.

Problem still exist. Every 3rd or 4th start of LM 4 I get the messagebox ''Problem mit Verzeichnis für 'export''.


If I restart LM 4 immediately after the messagebox appears, the messagebox does not popup. But if I wait a little longer, lets say ovewr night or so, the messagebox appears at the 1st start of LM 4.

Hi,

check in Settings > Misc > Default directories if the path to your export folder is valid. If not, fix it and restart the app.

Hi Michal,

I have already tried that.

Unfortunately within LM 4.3.3 in Settings > Misc > Default directories there are only 2 Buttons "Locus Ordner" and "Erweitert". In "Erweitert" there are only selections for 'backup/'-folder, 'mapsvector/'-folder and 'data/strm/' folder.

No 'external/' folder for selction available anymore.

Hi,

use the "deprecated" version of the "default directories". It still works as it used to work.

Hi Michal,

thank you very much.

I believe my wife is right when she says I have to buy some new eyeglasses soon ;-).

No, that's our fault - the "new" default directories should have been named otherwise (and will be in the next versions) - this is too confusing
