Based on the default startup or an attached .blend file (as simple as possible).

Appending from this file appears to work for me.

I would recommend asking for help on a forum before filing a bug report, that way you can fix your issue if it is on your end or have more information to narrow down what the cause might be.

I can't reproduce the issue either. The error message occurs when BLO_library_path_explode(path, libname, &group, &name) in wm_link_append_exec returns false.

I'll have to close this bug report because it is missing:

  • Steps that allow us to reproduce the problem (at least the currently provided ones seem inaccurate)
  • Operating system, GPU and driver version
  • Affected Blender version and previous version that worked properly
  • Project file that (actually) demonstrates the issue

Hence we are currently not able to reproduce the problem with the provided information. Please create a new bug report through Help > Report a Bug in Blender. We expect all bug reports to follow the submission template. Please provide system information (operating system, GPU, graphics driver version), affected Blender version, previous Blender version that worked properly, a short and precise description of the issue, step by step instructions to reproduce it and, if relevant, a minimal .blend file that showcases the problem.

It could be that you manually typed in a path and that was not pointing to a file as C:\Users\TEMP\Documents\my file\ suggests.
