I downloaded the new release 10.70, exited out of B4A, installed and then restarted it. Everything worked just fine but I then closed it yesterday and started it today and I got errors about missing libraries. So I looked in Configure Paths and everything was blank. I figured that this may be a bug in this release.

I added everything back and then added the libraries the Log indicated that I was missing. As you can see below I am still getting errors about missing libraries. I looked through my code but I don't see any errors. Can anyone tell me what I am missing? I don't see b4xfloattextfield in the Library Manager nor do I remember ever using it. The bottom log is blank.

Erel, I hate to disagree but I think I know a bug when I see one. Not be a jerk but I was a QA manager for a major US corporation and a QA Specialist for years and I am pretty sure that I know a bug when I see one. Anyway I was able to restore from one of my backups in "AutoBackups", a great feature I might add, I am almost back to working order but I am still getting one last error.

I have both AppCompat and B4XPages selected in Library Manager. Can you tell me what I am missing? I tried adding all B4X libraries and that didn't fix my error.

Compiling Error:

So I decided to deselect B4XPages and reselect it. After deselecting I looked at the Log and my error went away. I am soooooo confused. Anyway I am able to compile and am back to where I was before the upgrade to 10.70.

Thanks Graham for your suggestion,
Greg

Yep but I put B4XPages in to get rid of my original errors from post #1 above after I upgraded and lost the Configure Paths values.

Mahares, did you read my original post about what went south after I upgraded. I have upgraded B4A more than I can remember and never had any issues. But with this release I did. I know Erel is very fastidious in his work and I also know he is a very intelligent person but come on, there can always be bugs in code one form or another. Nobody's perfect.

After thinking this over I believe I might know how what happened. At one time I needed the B4XPages library but then took out the code that used it. B4A with other libraries that are not used anymore you get a message in the Log stating that so you can take it out. For B4XPages I never got that message. So when I upgraded and had to reconfigure the paths then that is what caused the problem. I could be wrong but that is what it looks like to me. The real problem though is why did my paths go blank after the upgrade.

I do believe that you hit the nail on the head. I had to buy a new PC and when I was configuring it I created a new Microsoft account by mistake which caused all kinds of problems with this account. I must have installed the previous version under that account. I have since created an account as administrator with my old Microsoft account and switched over to that. I did install B4A under the newly created account but after the install I opened B4A and did not have this issue. It wasn't until I rebooted and opened B4A that the paths were blank. Anyway it seems that, in all of this rigmarole that I had to do with my new PC, caused the problem. I didn't know that you stored the path information in the user's area but that makes sense that you do that.
