Can't open file: The system cannot find the file specified...
« on: September 13, 2021, 01:29:42 PM »
Hello,

I have been shared a Metashape project via Onedrive which contain the photos, markers, and project file etc which I have saved to my Desktop.

When I open the project file Metashape returns an error message -

Can't open file: The system cannot find the file specified(2): C:/Users/... *file pathway for the folder on my desktop* .files/0/0/thumbnails/thumbnails.zip

I have the files in the pathway until I get into the 'thumbnails' folder which is empty. It appears 'thumbnails.zip' is not there.

I can't seem to use the Change Path option from the Photos pane context menu as the project is Untitled with the Chunk empty.

Please could you help?

Many thanks,
Josie

Hello Josie,

You can manually edit the contents of doc.xml inside C:/Users/... *file pathway for the folder on my desktop* .files/0/0/frame.zip archive and remove the line (from the end of the file), corresponding to thumbnails.zip.

Just for case, keep the backup copy of the original frame.zip archive.
