Inkscape error - unable to create G-Code

Post by rdwesley » Fri Oct 12, 2018 1:46 pm

I started having the following error yesterday, and am unable to create G-Code Files now. Anyone else having this issue?

Unable to open object member file: --create-log=false C:\Users\User\AppData\Local\Temp\ink_ext_XXXXXX.svg3GR4QZ

Hey Robert,
I would try completely uninstalling Inkscape and doing a fresh install. Anytime I’ve had an issue like that a fresh install usually fixes it.

I haven't seen that one.

What version of Inkscape? Go to help->About Inkscape and in the top right corner you'll see something like "Inkscape 0.92.1 r15371"

Is it all SVG files or just one particular SVG file?

When does the error appear?

Dave it is the .92 version. I have been using it for a while. This just started yesterday. I am unable to create g-code files on 2 different computers. Just trying to make a simple square and generate code. I am stumped.

Googling the error message you gave doesn't turn up much, so I'm trying to reproduce the error over here. I need more details. There are several 0.92 releases -- 0.92.1, 0.92.2, etc. I'm using 0.92.1 which is here:

https://inkscape.org/en/release/0.92.1/

Is your windows account name actually "User" ?

If you want you can call me on google hangouts and share your screen -- davep@armadilloarmor.com

Thanks Dave. It finally started working after the 6th install. Really don’t know what happened. But I do appreciate all your help and willingness to assist.

Wordpad is a word processor and adds a lot of extra info to files like font, page format, etc. You want to use a text editor, like notepad.
