Manually clicking .nzb results in error SABnzbd

Post by Muyari » December 26th, 2018, 11:37 am

Hello All,

Has anyone experienced the following issue?

When I manually double click a .nzb i receive the following error in sabnzbd API key incorrect, Use the API key from Config->General in your 3rd party program:>Python-urllib/2.7.

With Sonarr I have no issues the file download starts fine for any shows that are added to Sonarr. I am currently running sabnzbd on ubuntu server 18.04 lts.

any help is appreciated.

Very strange. I'm not sure how the shortcut works exactly, how the file is assosicated with SABnzbd.
It should retrieve the API-key from the config automatically.
