Did you try rebooting your computer? That fixes this problem for me.

I am suddenly getting this same error?

I rebooted and it is still happening, it was working just 2 weeks ago when I last ran it.

Okay I figured it out.

I noticed this part referencing the orphaned directory

“nodeodm: info: Found orphaned directory: 7d2362ae-da02-4038-a75d-5c71924b20fd, removing…\r\n”

So I just went in and renamed with a .old on each directory there.

(not sure if this image will work?)

Once I did that, the app launched without an issue.

If there is nothing you need in those task directories, you could delete them.

Good to know. I was unsure so I just renamed them for now.
