Cannot create new case

Postby alamark » Wed Apr 05, 2017 10:16 pm

Hi, I hope somebody could help me!
I'm making a video course about digital forensics on Kali Linux and an entire section is dedicated to Autopsy version 4, which I've decided to use because of its new GUI and features.
I've succeeded in building Autopsy 4.3.0 from the developer branch sources on Kali Linux, though it has been quite tricky!
But when I attempt to create a new case, after inserting all the info in the dialogue window, the program returns a "Cannot create case" error.
The Autopsy logs report two exceptions that are very similar to those of an analogue issue (with version 4.1.0) that was reported some months ago on this thread on the Github repository of Autopsy:

One of the replies to the post states that the code that throws the exception would have been changed in the develop branch to fix this issue, but with version 4.3.0 I've had the same problem.
Has this issue been fixed in the meantime and anyone has been able to run successfully Autopsy 4 on Linux?

Do not know if you are still having an issue but my anti-virus application was blocking Autopsy from creating a new case. You should check and see if you have any errors in your AV logs.
