Lightrooom all of a sudden unable to export files. Very frustrating as I’m on deadline!
Got the LRC message today “Unable to export: You have not chosen an application to open the files” – won’t export any files whether jpeg or raw. The Plug-in manager click- box shows the file is enabled and version is version … -8dc50eb4 - error message capture below
LRC won’t export any files including images previously-exported 10 days ago without any issues.
LRC has had latest updates via CreativeClud and showing up to date, windows 10, I Have checked and all images are in the designated folder (my workflow is good). Exporting worked fine as recently as 48 hours ago – have never seen this message before
What ‘s going on? How do I fix it?
At the bottom of the Export dialog box in the Post Processing panel, is "Do Nothing" selected? Or something else that would require an application to be involved?
Just grabbing at ideas here. Does the destination subfolder "small" actually exist?
Did you somehow bring up the export dialog, without selecting a photo (or photos)?
In the export dialog, for destination, try actually selecting a specific destination, instead of same as originals, even if .
Just try as a workaround.
And yes, I failed to notice in your attachments, that you probably did select a photo. Many if us fellow members DO NOT TRUST attachments. Instead, use the insert photos button.
So, actually looking at your last attachment, despite my mistrust, I notice at the bottom:
Unable to export: You have not chosen an application to open the files.
Hmm, what version of LrC?
Please post your System Information as Lightroom Classic (LrC) reports it. In LrC click on Help, then System Info, then Copy. Paste that information into a reply. Please present all information from first line down to and including Plug-in Info. Info after Plug-in info can be cut as that is just so much dead space to us non-Techs.
Answering KR Seal's original question would have identified the cause of the problem. In the Export window, scroll the options panel to the bottom and look at the the Post-Processing section:
Change After Export to Do Nothing and the problem should go away.
Plugins and the Plug-in Manager are unrelated to this problem -- it just happens that the error message is displayed above the Plug-in Manager button.
