Any idea why I am getting this error. I wanted to export the data with the help of bounding box.
You can use the map window to define a bounding box without having to search for an address first. But yes, the address search does not work currently.
The map window uses the Google Geocoding service in the background. Since July 16, 2018, this service requires a Google API key (read more here).

I am going to try it tomorrow as you mentioned. Thanks for the response.
No, you do not have to uninstall. If you build using
If you prefer, you can also build a graphical installer using
If you want to uninstall the current version though, then note that the uninstaller will delete all files and folder within the installation directory. So if you have created data folders inside the installation directory, then make sure to move them somewhere before to uninstalling.
