In the Export dialog, check the Post-Processing section. Make sure the "After Export" choice isn't blank.

"Show in Explorer" is always checked.

"Show in Explorer" should be fine. Can you give me more information about when the error occurs? Does any part of the export complete? Does the error only occur when you export multiple files?

Can you post a screen shot of your export dialog, so we can see the exact settings you are using?

This problem has occurred on several occasions and, I believe, always in carrying out the following steps with multiple files:

1. Selected several (10 - 70) images for Export
2. Exported to a folder and specified Show in Explorer
3. Reviewed the exported images in Explorer
4. Identified one or more images for further processing and deleted all exported files from Explorer
5. Performed further processing on the selected images
6. Marked one or more images as Rejected
7. Deleted from disk all Rejected images using Control Backspace
8. Tried to export the remaining selected images. No portion of the export completed.
9. Closed and restarted LR to complete the export.
