How are you opening GnuCash and on what operating system?

The “not found” dialog box gives the path that it can’t find. Is that path correct? If not, was it at some point?
After dismissing the dialog box, look at the “recently used” list at the bottom of the File menu. Is the file that it can’t find on the list? Does clicking on it open it?
