Hello there! I just invested in the addon from the Blender Market. But I realised my custom builds of Blender are built of the master branch of Blender, meaning I’m in 3.0.0 days. Meaning I’m also 2 official versions off the last listed compatible release of your addon - meaning the majority of my pipeline is incompatible with older versions of Blender and thus also the addon. I have the VC Redistributable installed - but it still triggers the error. But it doesn’t error in 2.92 builds, works fine with 2.92. But 2.93 and 3.0 builds error despite having the VC 2017 dependencies installed. I would need the addon to work with more recent branches and master builds (current 3.0).
What is the timeline to use this addon to work with the master? How can the code of the addon change to register to work with the Blender master and work as a rolling release instead of stuck to former branches? What is needed for it to work for the Blender master?
This kinda throws a spanner into custom pipelines and the addon, as I can’t merge my builds into and from branches then back to master to stay relevant with most fixes due to… the extra work and merge conflicts between branches, then our own changes on top! So we only merge from master to work about 2 weeks behind for stability.
I had a look at the code, and the error is glitching with this *.PYD file when trying to import it, which might be doing a python version check on the blender version or uses DLL dependencies not compatible with the master builds? It’s a binary, so not sure how to edit it or check the code to see how I could make it work for newer versions of Blender, or to even debug. It clearly is needed as py-bassing it breaks also.

Do you have any tips to update or will you update to master eventually? Will I always be destined to use older branches or tags of blender to use your addon? Hope to get it going with the Master branch! My local currency is weak by nearly 5x, so it was a bit of a save up to get it, logically being a long term and better investment than Substance Designer rentals. Now here we are learning that I can’t use it in the pipeline because it’s not built for the Blender master - it is a little deflating! Your addon is one of the best UX improvements I’ve seen in a while.
