    Default ZAppLink not working for me

    Okay, well here's the deal, every time I try to use ZApplink, instead of it working, it gives me the following message:

    SCRIPT: ZAppLink_4.0.txt

    ERROR: 3842
    IN:[IGetFlags,internalLayerID]

    It is really annoying and I'd like to get it fixed if possible, any ideas folks?

    What version of Zbrush are you running? What Operating system, etc.?

    I know man, I tried the url you sent me, it didn't work, maybe I did it wrong or something. The tutorial said nothing of a second ZStartup file inside ZPlugs, and a second ZPlugs file inside said ZStartup file.

    Default ZAppLink ERROR 3842

    I have encountered the same error. Document - ZAppLink - gives the error. ZAppLink Properties - Make Character Sheet is functioning well. I have downloaded the Plugin ZAppLink_4.0.zip. After removing the ZAppLink data directory and the pluging from the StartUp Plugins folder and installing the downloaded Plugin suddenly PaintStop doesn't work because its Plugin can't be found. Is there a solution?

    I'm working under Windows 7 64-bit, using ZBrush 4R5 and Photoshop CS6 64-bit.

    You shouldn't have removed any plugin Data folders from the ZStartup/ZPlugs folder. The ZBrush 4R5 update for ZAppLink is just for the ZAppLink_4.0.zsc file. It sounds as though you also deleted the PaintStop data folder. Can you restore it from the Recycle bin?

    I have restored the original situation. I did not remove the PaintStop data folder. All is working well now except Document - ZAppLink. After copying ZAppLink_4.0.zsc from the C:\Temp into the Plugin folder ZBrush is starting up just after a minute (normaly a vew seconds) and beneath PaintStop There is a worning triangle. The ZAppLink button in Document dos not apear.

    Removing the ZAppLink Update and restoring the Old former ZAppLink en results in correct starting ZBrush, a nice working PaintStop, a visible ZAppLink button under Documents but no Document - ZAppLink - Photoshop connection and the error 3842.

    Can you post a screenshot of Windows Explorer showing the contents of your Zbrush 4R5 \ZStartup\ZPlugs folder? I should then be able to see what the problem is.

    Thanks,

    Thanks. I can't see anything wrong there. Try installing the update again -

    To install the update to ZAppLink:
    1. In the ZBrush 4R5\ZStartup\ZPlugs folder, delete the ZAppLink_4.0.zsc (circled red in the attached image). Don't touch anything else.
    2. Download the ZAppLink 4R5 update here and save to your Desktop.
    3. Unzip the file, open the containing folder created by the unzipping and locate the ZAppLink_4.0.zsc file.
    4. Copy the ZAppLink_4.0.zsc file to the ZBrush 4R5\ZStartup\ZPlugs folder.
    5. Restart ZBrush.

    Marcus,

    thank you for your support.
    I have followed your instructions and it resulted in a working connection with Photoshop.
    The ZAppLink_4.0.zsc file you pointed to is of a newer date than the one I had in the ZPlugs folder.

    Thanks again.
