ReloadPlugin() caught exception: FileIOError -- cannot move:

After Disable HBB plugin for installing HomeKit Bridge and re-enable HBB, got this error :
ReloadPlugin() caught exception: FileIOError -- cannot move: destination file exists

I tried to update latest release same behavior
Upgrading plugin EPS - Homebridge Buddy to newer version 1.0.6 (previous version moved to trash)
Error ReloadPlugin() caught exception: FileIOError -- cannot move: destination file exists

Annoying

Sounds like it could be a file system issue. Have you tried just installing the new version by hand? It's pretty simple, just paste the new plugin over the old one, done and done.

Re: ReloadPlugin() caught exception: FileIOError -- cannot m

That means you have two copies of the plugin: one in the Plugins folder and the other in the Plugins (Disabled) folder in your install folder:

Code: Select all
/Library/Application Support/Perceptive Automation/Indigo 7/


So when you try to disable the plugin, it fails (because a disable moves from one folder to the other).

Ok that's mean I have to flush this one in the Plugins (Disabled) or the other location ?

Well you could just move it out of one or the other so that the file error doesn't happen, you don't have to delete it. But why are you worried about deleting it? All of the devices are saved in Indigo, not the plugin file.

You may find it necessary to stop the Indigo server for the change to take effect. If you stop the server, delete one of the two files and restart the server, you should be good to go.
