There is an error in the TauDEM algorithm "Move outlets to streams" where it cannot find the executable. The text file in the following locations needs to be edited:


Line 2 in each file - Instead of reading moveoutletstostrm it needs to be moveoutletstostreams so that it matches the executable name in the TauDEM installation. I had to edit that before the process would run.

Windows 7 x64
2.18.7 x64
TauDEM 5.3.7
Microsoft MPI v8

I see TauDEM is to removed from core to a separate provider in 3.0 (https://github.com/qgis/QGIS-Documentation/issues/1619). Will this still be a problem in 3.0?

This is not bug, in supported version of TauDEM this tool executable has name "moveoutletstostrm"
