Summary0001352: Cannot write GPS locations to .xmp files
DescriptionAfter using Geosetter successfully for many years, today I get an error every single time I try to save all changes to image files. The .xmp files already exist, they are created by Lightroom 6.7, this is the exact same workflow I have used for many years. Every time I try, I get an error message as shown in the attached file. The only thing that jumps out at me about this error is that the file c:\users\Paige\appdata\local\temp\et00067A82.arg does not exist, but this may be a temporary file, I don't know. Please advise.
Steps To ReproduceSelect a file, assign GPS location, then Ctrl-S
TagsNo tags attached.

I too noticed this behaviour since updating ExifTool to 10.36. Solved by reverting back to 10.35.

After much effort, I discovered that my AntiVirus program (named BitDefender) was blocking ExifTool/GeoSetter, as it considered ExifTool to be Ransomware. Once I changed the settings in BitDefender, the problem went away.
