I have Blender unzipped into the HDD D: drive on my computer and I have a separate SDD C: drive for Windows stuff and a few programs. When I go to install an addon from the zip file, it says it installed to “C:\Users\[username]\AppData\Roaming\Blender Foundation\Blender\2.80\scripts\addons”
I have all the custom file paths in the user preferences set to folders in the D: drive, and the scripts is specifically “D:\[username]\Documents\Blender 2_80\_add_ons\addons” for the custom folder.
Why won’t Blender install or look for addons there? Am I missing something? Do I need to do the old fashioned copy+paste the io_ folder to that or elsewhere?
After trying to install it and giving the message it was put in the C drive, it does not show up in the addons list.
