comment Droid Explorer Setup problem : cannot start service exception
The only way to fix it is to reboot. windows will not release the service and allow it to be installed until it is released.

comment Unable to locate SDK when starting Droid Explorer
@bgmCoder can you open an issue on de.codeplex.com and include the log information from C:\Users\[user]\AppData\Roaming\DroidExplorer\logs

comment Droid Explorer Setup problem : cannot start service exception
@bgmCoder no, because windows will not allow you to create the new service until it can safely clean up the old one. And when it gets in this state, really a reboot of the PC is the only option.

comment Cannot find SDK or point to it, both programs installed
If you have a 64-bit machine check in HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\WOW6432Node\DroidExplorer\InstallPath@SdkPath - I know, a registry cluster... I have it on my backlog to clean it up.

comment Unable to locate SDK when starting Droid Explorer
@bgmCoder DroidExplorer does not look for Android Studio, it looks for the SDK. If it is and it is able to find the path to it (stored in the registry) it will use that path. If it cannot find the path, the user needs to select the sdk location.

comment Kindle Not showing up and backup not converting in Droid Explorer. Titanium Backup also not working
::disclaimer: i am the developer of droidexplorer:: I was going to suggest the permissions. Glad you got it sorted out. With the ABEX file, you would not have been able to restore that one directly, because the ABEX is directly tied to a specific device. the crash, i will file an issue on that and investigate it. Thank you, glad you got it working.

comment Droid Explorer: Cannot See HTC One A9 (Rooted / S-Off / USB Debugging)
::as the developer of droid explorer:: From your log output where it calls adb.exe devices, there is nothing after it. which means that adb is not detecting your device. make sure that you do not have some 'allow' dialog on the screen, and that you enable USB debugging on the device. (or wifi debugging if you want to connect via wifi)

comment Why android explorer gives only empty folder when backing up?
hmm, interesting. if you are never prompted, that could be why the folder is created and empty. it is technically waiting for your input, but it isn't prompting you. The prompt is on your phone btw.

comment Why android explorer gives only empty folder when backing up?
That is strange. As the developer of droid explorer, I will have to re-test this as this looks like it may be a bug. But, I do not want to close this (as bugs should not be reported here), until I can confirm that it actually is a bug. That folder should not be a folder. The name is what the file should be called.

comment Can't see photos when using Droid Explorer
try opening the "debug window" when droid explorer is open and before you navigate to the camera folder. This sounds like a bug, in which case, I will have created an issue for it. If you could post the output of when you browse the camera folder in the bug. There is also a log in C:\Users[username]\AppData\Roaming\DroidExplorer\logs that may be helpful to track down the cause of the bug.

comment Can't see photos when using Droid Explorer
I am curious as to what you do see in DCIM folder. And you do see files in other folders? Are you sure you are in the correct DCIM folder? If it is your camera folder, you should see 3 folders: .thumbnails, 100ANDRO, and Camera. I am the developer of Droid Explorer.

comment Droid Explorer does now show hidden files
@VivekJi it was already mentioned that ES Explorer was tried, and that it shows "data" as empty. Both in the comment above yours, and in the original question.

comment Should i do the factory reset? If yes, what will i lose?
no, not "all data". It will not remove anything on the internal sdcard, nor the external sdcard. But any settings and things that applications save in /data/data will be gone.

comment Droid Explorer documentation?
As the lead developer of droid explorer, I want to point out that while this is a great answer to where the documentation is, the documentation is very limited. Also, the GitHub wiki and code is not official and won't be official until I do the next release.

comment Unable to start ADB with root access
For backup, droid explorer just uses the device backup and makes it a bit easier to use. The backups are saved in C:\Users\<username>\Android Backups

comment Unable to start ADB with root access
it will continue to function, for the most part. You may have some issues accessing folders like /system/apps/ or opening a shell with root access (you should still be able to say "su" in the shell manually though)

comment What's using my GPS?
@DanielS., That's fine that you down-voted, but I am not trying to convince anyone of anything, I provided information. Based on the information supplied, I gave the best answer I could; any application installed could be using the GPS, if it requests the permission. Also note, my answer is about 4.5 years old.

comment Unable to start ADB with root access
Yes, I get that you have root. but you cannot start ADB in ROOT MODE unless it supports it, either with a custom kernel, or using ADBD Insecure. Running an app on the device that requests root is different than how Droid Explorer uses root. It requests it through ADB, and if adb does not run in root mode, it will not have access to folders that require root.

comment Compass feature in all Android phones?
What is the "problem" you mention? Your question is unclear. If you are only asking if every single android device has a compass, then the answer is no. An example, I don't know of one set top box that runs android that would have a compass.

comment How do you progress through the Droid Explorer unpack option?
So this question, sort of looks like it could be answered here. I don't think it is a bug with droid explorer, because in the 2 environments I tested this in, I do not have this dialog. It looks like it could be an issue with your install of java. maybe your java path is not added to the PATH environment variable.
