Every time I open a Project .mlt SC complains “There are missing files in your project.” with a popup window listing all Playlist items from previous session to perform location. Finally looked closely at the pathnames SC was showing in the popup window and found SC is displaying POSIX-style right-slash directory element separators as:
If this character string is what is actually being handed to the standard MS Win API for file open then of course it will fail. SC component managing OS-specific pathname formatting not configured for Windows or is just goofing up. Sanitized screenshot attached.
The download page has the line “Older versions are available for download.” with a link to the Github releases. Discovering information is hardly considered “reverse engineering” ha ha ha. That does not give the hard work of real reverse engineering enough credit!
P.S. Version 17.02 with a fix for this is available now.
