Markus,
I hope this can be of any help.
I have upgraded my system to the new Google Drive app and the message disappeared.
Ciao

Thanks for sharing that.
IIUC, these messages are just a "minor nuisance" that is likely caused by an error in a third party software (Google Drive?).

In case it's caused by Qt: In the nightly builds, we are already using the last version of Qt5 that will be released to open source projects. If someone is able to point out a change that would fix this, we can try and backport that change to Qt5 in MXE Octave.

Lowering priority. That still means that we will be happy to accept a fix or a workaround if there is something we can do on Octave's side to avoid these messages.

Hi Markus,

yes it works correctly.

It show the message every now and then.
If I close the file browser it does not display the message.
If I start octave without the file browser it does not display the message. But then, when I re-enable the file browser it shows the message.

In my case everything started after google updated google drive. I noticed that the message is referring to an entry (key) in the registry file, namely "Software\Google\DriveFS\Share", 
which does not exists in my case.

I also tried both the install version and zip version of octave from nightly build and it is showing the message.

Regards

Does Octave still work correctly for you after that message?

The same message seems to be emitted for some users of different programs (involving or not involving Qt):

I have tried installing the nightly build

(hg id: 37ddca7ad9cb)    Wed, Sep 22, 2021

but is still reporting the same message.

That might be a compatibility issue between Qt's file browser and some Google Drive provider.

Qt has been updated in MXE Octave (our build system for Windows) since Octave 6.3.0 was released. Could you please check if the error still occurs with a nightly build from octave.space?

Hi,
I have the same issue since this morning.
I am running octave 6.3.0, on Windows 10.

if I start octave without the file browser the message does not appear.
if I open the file browser I get the same message.

if I start octave with the file browser I get the message.

here is the message I get

IIUC, this is fixed for you with Octave 6.3.0.

Closing report.

If this should appear again with Octave 6.3.0 or a newer version, we can re-open or create a new report.

Is "crashpad" some software you installed that catches crashes?

- it is part of Chromium per this link : https://chromium.googlesource.com/crashpad/crashpad/+/fa96a04fc64dd1d1cb34a1c38c32dc21c9f26c5e/doc/overview_design.md

Does Octave still work correctly after that message? it did

Is your Google Drive the current directory when you start Octave? no

Does the message still appear if you close the "File Browser" widget?
Since I switched to 6.3.0, I have not seen the error.
