MakeHuman Not Starting

Postby Transentient » Sat Jan 23, 2021 6:03 pm


Having had a PC rebuild I downloaded and re-installed MakeHuman, using the lastest version 1.2.0. Installation ran with out problem, however when I run MakeHuman nothing happens.

My PC is Windows 10 Pro Version 20H2
Graphics Card is an Nvidia GeForce GTX 1060 - with latest driver up date

I have also attached the MakeHuman log files, as recommended although I cannot upload python_out as it is an empty file

To be sure, I un-installed, re-downloaded and re-installed, with the same result.

Any clues? I have used MakeHuman, in different versions for some time without issue.

Thanks in advance. Stay safe and well out there

Go to the makehuman/v1py3 folder and delete settings.ini (maybe all other ini files, too). If this does not fix your issue make sure to avoid any non-ASCII allover MakeHuman, or force Windows to use utf-8. Perhaps this link is helpful, too: ... -code-page (Can't/won't do any testing, because generally I'm not a Windows user...)

Thanks Aranuvir

Deleting the ini files seems to have done the trick. Makehuman now starts
