Vvvv splash screen crash IF packs/dx11 in main folder

I’m getting an endless splash screen when opening vvvv only if I have packs/dx11 in my root folder.

I ran /logstartup and, unsurprsingly, a dx11 node fails. Any ideas?

Running windows 10 - x64 everything

try re-download and unzip with something like 7-zip or winrar

@antokhio Cheers! That fixed all my problems. If only I understood why…

it has something to do with permissions, that is why it is mentioned in the install instructions thaty you should use 7zip to unzip: downloads
