Shortcut to download bookmark always incorrect

Post by adamc » 25 Apr 2020 08:28

I have my regular user account download folder bookmarked but it keeps insisting on pointing to an incorrect location.

The location that is not found and incorrect is :

C:\Program Files (x86)\XYplorer\kodi\Downloads

I have never bookmarked this. It should be the download folder found in \user\kodi\Dowloads.

I have tried cleaning up the xyplorer.ini file but it doesn't help.

I did actually manage to fix it now after testing another idea.

Instead of browsing for the location from the user directory I explicitiy browsed from C:\ and did it the long way. I think maybe there is a bug that doesn't get the full path if you just take the user folder presented in the browser.

Works fine here. Both locations can be bookmarked ("Favorite Folder") and visited as expected:

Downloads
<user>\Downloads

Maybe my ini got corrupted...i tend to copy the ini when doing reinstalls or using it on my other computers to keep all the settings.

The behaviour works as expected on another computer.

It's still very odd that somehow Xyplorer insists the location is "C:\Program Files (x86)\XYplorer\kodi\Downloads". It's never been a location that has existed.
