When attempting to use the restore existing backup or basically any function of Droid Explorer, nothing happens.

When I click on Droid Explorer from the menu created, this is what I get.

Input string was not in a correct format.

It doesn't appear to be working in any means.

    My LG Nexus 5 is rooted. So, it isn't that. The only APP I have listed with root access under SU is titanium backup, so I have to assume it has been rooted properly. – jackmeat Dec 17 '19 at 12:16
  • enable usb-debugging, download platform_tools, run adb shell, then su and grant permission. then try again Droid Explorer – alecxs Dec 17 '19 at 23:56

  • It seems to have made some progress. I did as you suggested with the adb shell, and also what was in the link you gave, where I deleted that folder android-44W and just installed what the sdk manager had for an update for the build-tools and updates of what i already had. The error has changed though: it now says "could not find a part of the path" and points to c:\programdata\droidexplorer\assets I cannot post the exact screen cap of it here. it seems to be looking for a [default].png in that folder to move forward. that folder doesn't seem to exist on my system. – jackmeat Dec 18 '19 at 11:34
