Asking for help for a friend whom with I’m working on a game, he’s having major issues with ROBLOX studio plugin installation and is unable to find any similar problems and, therefore, a solution. He personally feels this is a bug with ROBLOX studio and wrote this up for you guys:
I am unable to use any ROBLOX Studio plugins at all – they fail to install. The problem is not place-dependent and has persisted after reinstalls of ROBLOX Studio.
The error itself, as copied from the Output window:
18:17:15.060 - Unable to load metadata for installed plugins. Installed plugins will not be loaded.
When I click ‘Manage Plugins’, I am presented only with the word ‘Plugins’ on the left and the blue ‘Find Plugins’ button. When I install a plugin (as noted, any plugin), the following appears in the Output window:
18:25:26.352 - Plugin metadata file is corrupted. Version information for your plugins may have been lost.
18:25:26.353 - Finished installing plugin. Open a new window to start using it.
My plugins folder (C:\Matthew\AppData\Local\Roblox\Plugins) remains totally empty. The plugin does not appear in Studio, following either a new window being opened or a total Studio/system restart.
