  1. I had a version of 2.8 from like 2 weeks ago and AN worked - except blender crashed when trying to render.
    Now I have been trying every daily build of blender for a few days and AN doesn't execute at all anymore... Anyone else experience that? Is there a solution?

  2. I was using AN in Blender 2.8 but one of the nodes did not produce a result, so I deleted AN and tried a reinstall. It loads into Blender but prompt me to upgrade to 2.8X (what does this mean?). Also I cannot activate it, regardless of the version I try. The error message I get suggests I have multiple versions installed??? I deleted them all, still no change. Or it prompts me to change the version of Python???
