When I try to use GRASS commands in QGIS, I get the following error message:

Missing dependency.This algorithm cannot be run :-( This algorithm requires GRASS to be run. Unfortunately, it seems that GRASS is not installed in your system, or it is not correctly configured to be used from QGIS Click here to know more about how to install and configure GRASS to be used with QGIS

I'm not sure if this is related, but in processing options and configuration I have the following paths:

Grass Folder: C:/PROGRA~2/QGISCH~1/apps\grass\grass-6.4.4

MSYS Folder: C:/PROGRA~2/QGISCH~1/apps\msys

Should I reroute these folders? Which are the correct folders that Grass folder and MSYS folder should point towards?

    Can you double-click on the paths to update them to your installation? – markusN Aug 18 '14 at 6:41

As Markus wrote, it is a simple setting in:

Processing -> Processing options -> Providers -> GRASS ...

On Windows, correct folders are - with the path to your OSGeo / QGIS-installation as a basis:


MSYS is no longer required for GRASS 7 on Windows.
