Cannot delete folders from library - bug

Postby nkasic » Mon May 26, 2008 10:32 pm

I'm using the latest version of QCAD Professional on WinXP.
I have noticed that, if I delete folder in Parts Library through Windows Explorer while QCAD is open, the folder structure is not refreshed in Library Browser.
Even if I exit and start QCAD, the "ghost" folders are still there.
I did it by mistake first time and now I have a few folders in Library Browser I cannot get rid of.
Paths in Application preferences are all empty.
Can someone replicate the error, and tell me how to get rid of folders in Library Browser that don't exist?

To solve this problem
1. Stop QCad
2. Delete the folder .qcad with the following command from a command line:
rmdir /s "%homedrive%%homepath%\.qcad"
3. Start QCad.
