So recently I opened up a project and got this error saying that my project had invalid dependencies citing the AltspaceVR uploader package not being able to be found.
The cause was human error as I had reorganised by HDD weeks prior and that file path was invalid. This meant that Unity on startup could not locate that .gz file and threw a nasty error at me that made me jolt back in my seat.
Thankfully it can easily be fixed with a few short steps.
- Except humans and PC’s are equally both flawed and move on.
- But… really step 1, press continue as there isn’t anything more you can do.
Unless: You can restore the file back to the origional path the file was located in.
- Once you are loaded in check your package manager to unload the uploader.
- Now reimport the uploader as per normal. It may take a little longer for the uploader to import as it seems to want to do some housekeeping treating your project as a brand new Unity-Altspace project.
Your project should be back to normal *fingers crossed*.
This is a universal Unity issue with missing packages and this issue could come about so if you have found this post looking for non-Altspace help you can try restoring the original file paths or reinstalling the packages. If you are unable to recover your package you can export your project into a clean project and go from there.
