    Running Android 2.3.4 on HTC Thunderbolt and I've purchased the full version of Tasker

    I have yet to figure out how to successfully import Tasker profiles to my device. I've visited many websites and have yet to find a reliable resource that explains what I'm doing wrong, or why this won't work.

    I understand that you must place Tasker profiles in the /sdcard/Tasker/profiles directory, but I do not have a Profiles folder in the Tasker directory.

    (apparently I'm not allowed to include links in my first post)

    I've manually created a folder named 'profiles' and included some tasker profiles I've downloaded in that folder. These files are in .xml format.

    When I open Tasker and long-press the Profiles button and then click Import, I see nothing.

    I've also tried uninstalling and reinstalling the app, but it behaves the same way regardless.

    My questions:

    Why do I not have a 'profiles' folder in my /sdcard/Tasker/ directory?

    Why, when I manually create that 'profiles' folder am I still unable to import anything?

    Does anyone have any idea what I'm doing wrong?

    I just checked mine and I no longer had a "profiles" folder.

    When I went into tasker, I went to "Import" and it showed me a profiles folder. Then when I went back to /sdcard/tasker/, the folder was there. I put a profile in there and I could import it.

    Maybe try delete your folder you created, restart the phone and do what I did.
