Installation

Postby williamb » Thu Jun 13, 2019 4:03 pm

I was running makehuman community 1.2 a3 when win 10 crashed. I used restore but was unable to install afterwards. I reinstalled win 10 and still can't install the program. Instead of an exe file there is only an icon file with the makehuman icon. I keep trying to install but no luck. I also can't run the makehuman 1.1 version getting failed to initiate script message. Any ideas?
Thanks for any help.

Sounds like Windows Defender is in action as an other user reported.

Enjoy the Choice :)

The installer does not create a desktop icon, it creates a start entry in your start menu.

I shut off all antivirus (Norton) and tried reinstalling. I thought Norton took over for windows defender. No luck. I didn't mean it created a desktop icon. The file in the windows 10 program(x86) is not an exe file but listed as an icon file. Clicking on it opens my Gimp program. Weird.

Assuming that you used MH 1.2.0 alpha3 installer to install for all users, you should be able to create a shortcut something like the following and have makehuman start.

"C:\Program Files (x86)\makehuman-community\Python\pythonw.exe" "C:\Program Files (x86)\makehuman-community\mhstartwrapper.py"

Do you see mhstartwrapper.py in C:\Program Files (x86)\makehuman-community\ after the install? Is this directory even created?

this is what I see with mhstartwrapper.py #!/usr/bin/python3
#!/usr/bin/python3
import os
import sys
import subprocess

scriptpath = os.path.abspath(os.path.dirname(os.path.realpath(__file__)))
mhpath = os.path.join(scriptpath, "makehuman")
os.chdir(mhpath)
subprocess.call([sys.executable,"makehuman.py"])

This is the file list under makehuman
makehuman Dir
pkgs Dir
