Can't work in headless anymore
« on: November 07, 2023, 06:54:38 PM »

I've started working again on my automatic headless processing after a few months, but it seems nothing works anymore. When trying to open and save a document, I have several errors such as "saving disabled" and "no license found". However, the path to AGISOFT_license is set in the environment variables, and the GUI says my Professional license is indeed activated. True, recently I have made some tests with newer versions of Metashape, but I have reinstalled 1.8.4 since. Also, I have moved my script folder from C:/ to F:/, but I'm not sure why this should be a problem. Also, my Python interpreter is 3.8.

At last, inside VScode, I've tried Metashape.License.activate('key') but I have this error

Code: [Select]
    + CategoryInfo          : ObjectNotFound: (Metashape.License.activate:String) [], CommandNotFoundException
    + FullyQualifiedErrorId : CommandNotFoundException

How can I fix this and set everything back as it used to work?

EDIT : I think I found the problem : I had to reinstall the proper Python wheel, because the wheel for 2.0 was still up. I'm leaving this here anyway in case someone else encounters the problem!

Thank you
