Below is a list of common problems when Installing PowerScripts.
PowerScripts does not appear in Illustrator 2021 after update
When Creative Cloud updates to Illustrator 2021, it deletes the PowerScript files. You will need to download the most recent PowerScripts updater below and reinstall PowerScripts.
If you experience any problems installing, the most reliable workaround is using Method 2 in Powerscripts Updater fails to install extension (Illustrator 2021) below .
"Installation failed because the extension is not compatible with the installed applications"
There are two reasons for this
- You do not have Illustrator 2015, 2017, 2019, 2020 or 2021* installed
- If you only have Illustrator 2021 installed you will need to install the latest version of PowerScripts Updater. If you have the latest version installed and still get an error see the workaround in the issue below Powerscripts Updater fails to install extension (Illustrator 2021)
