Hello, thanks for the reply! It`s work now! I created the plugin folder and now it works!

Hi, 

 

I'm using Adobe XD on Windows 10. Yesterday it was working perfectly and today since I had done the update, all my plug-ins already installed were removed, they just disapearred.

 

Since this, every time I'm trying to install plug-in, no matter which one, I have this message : "L'installation du plug-in a échoué. En savoir plus : Centre d'aide".

 

I try to remove all my local temp files, uninstall/install, signout from the Creative Cloud... Nothing is working !
Could you help me please ?
