Please describe the problem.

I get the following warning on my git-annex dashboard

Upgrader crashed: C:\Users\alexasus\.config\git-annex\program: openFile: does not exist (No such file or directory)

What steps will reproduce the problem?

  • Install git-annex with the Windows 10 installer.
  • Create a repository with the default path.

What version of git-annex are you using? On what operating system?

  • git-annex version: git-annex-installer_8.20201007+git171-g7e24b2587 (this is the Windows 10 installer filename)

Have you had any luck using git-annex before? (Sometimes we get tired of reading bug reports all day and a lil' positive end note does wonders)

I've barely just installed. So I'm gonna get going these days. That warning doesn't seem to be an issue so far. I've looked it up but couldn't find any other reports for that warning.

fixed (by skipping checking upgrades on OS's where it's not supported) --Joey
