    I thought about making my own thread, but perhaps it's better to add here? I'm having the exact same issue. Fresh install, Windows 10, new computer, latest download, Run as Administrator, and I've even tried uninstalling and checking different smart material packs like just Pack 1, 2, or 5, but every time it hits the smart materials, I get this error:

    I even tried ignoring all the way to the end. This continues for every single smart material, and refreshing the library doesn't seem to fix it.
