I am having an issue with Blender not registering or loading add-ons. Blender 2.79, 2.80 and 2.81.
I tried to add one in, and followed the steps in several different ways (.zip files, .py files etc.) and none of them seemed to allow an add-on to appear on the add-ons list. At first, I assumed it was the add-on I was using. I purchased Auto-Rig Pro from Artell.
I installed by going into user preferences -> Add-ons, Install/install from file -> select the .zip file. A blue bar at the bottom says I installed the module. I check the list of add-ons and it doesn’t appear. To verify it was installed, I checked the Blender Info Log. I get the following line;
" Modules Installed () from ‘C:\Users\Maker\Downloads\auto_rig_pro.zip’ into ‘C:\Users\Maker\AppData\Roaming\Blender Foundation\Blender\2.81\scripts\addons’ "
I have also repeated this install in blender versions 2.79, 2.80 and 2.81. The same issue persists. I then tried to install a different add-on. I googled a free blender 2.80 addon, and tried it with Driver-Constraint-Addon-Master. I followed the same steps for install, and on each version of blender, it failed to properly install or in the very least, just won’t appear on the add-ons list so I can enable it.
I also browsed the blenderartists forum for my issue, and tried removing any " . " in the zip file names, and that didn’t seem to work either.
Is there something I am doing wrong when installing?
