Whenever I try to instal  any Plugin in Adobe XD, an error appears "Plugin Installation Failed".

I tried to empty space. I tried deleting "xman.db" file. I tried disabling antivirus also but nothing worked. I really need an urgent solution. 

Thanks.

Hi defaultv4y48dng0lve,

 

We are sorry for the frustration. Are you getting this error only while installing "web export" plugin? If yes, please try creating a new user profile on windows machine and let us know if that helps.

If issue still persists, please generate Adobe logs and uplaod them to a shared location such as Dropbox and share the URL with me over a PM. 

 

We will try our best to help.

 

Thanks,

Harshika
