I followed the steps suggested by @kazuhito and it is set to the GRASS folder.

However when I close, I get error message.

GRASS Folder is set

Original Question

This is branched off from Unable To Clean Incorrect Geometries with Grass

I installed `QGIS Standalone Installer Version 2.18 (64 bit) from QGIS Download Website.

Then I went to GRASS GIS Download page to install GRASS GIS 7.2.1 (current stable)

No matter what I try, every time I run v.clean I get same error:

This algorithm cannot be run :-( GRASS folder is not configured. Please configure it before running GRASS algorithms.

How to fix this?

  • Could you open Processing | Options | Providers | GRASS GIS 7 commands | GRASS7 folder and check if it is set to your grass-7.2.1 folder?

  • @Kazuhito Yes, GRASS folder is set to grass-7.2.1 , however I get error when trying to close the dialog. Have to cancel instead. Please see updated questions.

    Please try to revise your question with responses to each clarification sought rather than trying to turn it into a conversation with your commenters. That way what you are asking, and the answer(s) supplied are much clearer. Our focussed Q&A format is introduced in the 2-minute Tour of the site that all of its users are expected to have taken.

  • I think the error itself is not related to GRASS7, but to older GRASS6. Could you open GRASS commands (just below GRASS 7 commands) and deactivate it?

    There is a bug in the current QGIS release, see issues.qgis.org/issues/16777. You can switch back to QGIS 2.18.9 until the bug is fixed.
