Exporter plug-in doesn't run when open by clicking .prproj file

Hi everyone!

I am creating an exporter plug-in. It works fine when I open Premiere, open a project and choose to export using my plug-in. But when i open a project directly by double clicking the project file (like untitled.prproj), my plug-in always show up a "Error compiling movie" message.

I use log4cxx to help track the plug-in, but no log was created, so my guess is that the plug-in has not even been loaded.

Could anyone tell be the differences between starting Premiere -> open a project and open a project directly by double clicking its .prproj file. In both case, which file is loaded and which file is not?

I'm very appreciated if anyone would have the same problem and tell me how to fix this. I'm really stuck here

    What version of Premiere Pro are you running?  What steps do you take after double-clicking the project file to get the "Error compiling movie" message?

    That is pretty strange - there shouldn't be any difference.  The "Error compiling movie" message is being shown because your exporter is returning an error from one of the selectors.  Have you tried debugging it to see why it is returning an error?

    The only thing that comes to mind is that when you double-click on a .prproj file the current working directory will be that directory. If you open Premiere Pro it’ll be that binary directory.




    So… if your exporter has some directory dependence that would do it.
