As I've said many times prior, that is the folder that is in the "Exchange_folder.txt"

In my folder "G:\3DCOAT\3D-CoatV48\Exchange"

I have an import.txt file with the following text within it.

C:\Users\kenmo\Documents\3DC2Blender\ApplinkObjects\3DC014.fbx
C:\Users\kenmo\Documents\3DC2Blender\ApplinkObjects\3DC014.fbx
[ppp]
[export_preset Blender Cycles]

I just tried it. Now a new FBX file appears 3DC012.FBX appears in  "C:\Users\kenmo\Documents\3DC2Blender\ApplinkObjects "

And each time I use the Blender Addon I must select  in which folder my Exchange_folder.txt" resides in. It does not save the setting.

I hope you can understand that I'm doing my best to help you...I really am.  So every time when you start blender again it will delete what's inside of Exchange_folder.txt 

I hope you can understand that it really hard to fix something that I don't see. Thats why I need to ask many questions. But I hope we can find solution soon for you.

Thank you. two points:

1. is there G:/3DCOAT/3D-CoatV48/Exchange folder

2. if there is. Then you place that path into addon and hit Apply. Now do you see SEND and GETBACK button. Now can you open Exchange_folder.txt file and see if G:/3DCOAT/3D-CoatV48/Exchange is saved there.

3. so if you open blender again, Exchange_folder.txt should still have same path. is this the case.

Sorry to ask so many question but I hope I with these info I find fix much faster.

Since you seem to have a hard time reading my posts as you keep asking the same question over and over. I will include my my Exchange_folder.txt and you can see for yourself.

I've exited 3DC & Blender 2.9.2 several times. The FBX models do not get deleted. There are now 27 FBX models in my folder

Thank you. So that file has the right info. You should have connection between blender and 3d-coat. If you select basic cube and press send button. Do you see import window in 3d-coat? if not do you see any error messages in blender.

thats legacy code and I will remove it some point. There is setting that you can limit this folder for 10 items.

The only thing that resides in my "G:\3DCOAT\3D-CoatV48\Exchange" folder is an import.txt file 

Which I've attached. The import.txt file gets overwritten each time I launch 3DC.

Sorry but I can not be any clearer then this.

import.txt

After sending from Blender I do not get the popup window in 3DC.

I do not get an error message in Blender after entering the location of the  Exchange_folder.txt. 

It is not going into an endless loop as it did prior.

 Nor do I get the import window in 3DC.

I see that you are using 4.8 version? it's quite old. Are maybe able download latest 4.9 version. I know it's much to ask.

this could be 3d-coat issue. because you said it will overwrite import.txt. So 3d-coat deletes import.txt file? that means that it will acknowledge the file but does not do anything with it. And thats a bit odd.
