Gem Not Opening
Posted Feb 27 2019 - 08:38 AM
I also have “GPL Secrets” and “Sierra” folders saved on an external hard drive, by opening the Gem exe on this I can open GPL on the external drive.
I want to be able to open Gem > GPL directly on my “onboard “ drive, If I replace the GPL Secrets folder on the internal drive with that one on the external drive should that work ? or what else can I try that may not make things worse?

I remember, for the latter, that I just restarted my PC and Gem was fine again. No idea to this day, what caused it and why, after a restart, Gem was good again 🤔
Just guessing now, and scratching my fading grey matter (dangerous 😂🤣) What about the antivirus blocking things in GPL and Gem 🤔

Details - Left click the Gem short cut>'Open file location> rename GEM exe file to "Old> Copy Gem exe file from my exterior drive, close and then open Gem from the shortcut. ( Probably one could delete the old exe file after inserting the other one, but I am not going to chance my arm on anything further !)

No, it seems to me that the initial exe was corrupted. I killed that exe and replaced it with an exe which was not corrupted and now Gem opens again from the original shortcut on my desktop and works as it did previously.
