    I hope someone may be able to help me with this.

    I have recently upgraded to Windows 10 and today I tried installing ZBrush 2018.1

    I turned off Defender to install ( as recommended ) yet it still came up with an error. :(


    I checked to see if anything did get unpacked and this is what I found.


    I have always installed in the default location that Pixologic sets for ZBrush even on Windows 7 and I have never had a problem with Windows 7.

    If anyone out there is able to help, I would be most grateful.

    Thank you.

    I just been looking through the troubleshoot forum over at Pixologic.

    The answer I found.

    Make sure to disable any antivirus including Defender and try reinstalling again. Did That !
    If that fails, then download again without antivirus on. Will try that !

    I will keep looking for any solution over on the forum but would still appreciate any help you guys can give.

    Thank you.

    2018.1 is the latest version.

    How did you fix the problem Dove?

    Hi Bonnie

    I fixed it by turning off all antivirus, including Windows Defender, then redownload, install, activate. Only after all this is done can the antivirus be turned back on.

    I got all that from the troubleshoot forum at Pixologic.

    So far its been going fine for me. Hope I didnt just jinx myself. :cautious:

    I'm sure you didn't jinx yourself Dove, as I've heard of a number of software apps (and not just 3D apps) which need you to turn off antiviral software before they'll even install, let alone work properly.
