Sync to Pavlovia fails

Description of the problem:
I’m trying to upload an experiment to Pavlovia. (I had the experiment on Pavlovia before, but I deleted the repository and also deleted the git folder from the local folder, changed the name of the folder and the experiment file.) However, when trying to upload the experiment, I get the following error message:

Traceback (most recent call last):
File “C:\Program Files\PsychoPy3\lib\site-packages\psychopy\app\builder\”, line 1339, in onPavloviaRun
retVal = pavlovia_ui.syncProject(parent=self, project=self.project,

elif self.filename and pavlovia.getProject(self.filename):

output=stdout, stderr=stderr)
subprocess.CalledProcessError: Command ‘[‘git’, ‘branch’, ‘–show-current’]’ returned non-zero exit status 128.

PsychoPy version: 2021.1.0

This experiment is a version of another that has worked perfectly on Pavlovia and the modification I applied shouldn’t cause this error (at least I think so…) :frowning:

Thank you in advance for any ideas!

I wonder if it is related to the new version as mentioned here: Problems with syncing and uploading Psychopy experiments to Pavlovia after update to 2021.1.0 I finally reinstalled the 2020.1.3. version, and syncing works fine again, so it seems to be a version-related issue!

Yes, this has been brought up already and will be fixed in 2021.1.1


Thank you, Jon.
Is there an estimate date for the release of the 2021.1.1 version?
