Open in Unity button does not work



  • A Richards

    Update for those that need it:
    My assets were here: C:\Users\R\AppData\Roaming\Unity\Asset Store-5.x

    If you download and import it goes into your project folder (hey - you get to choose). A quick glance at settings did not reveal that to me.

    Please could someone from Unity consider adding a UI element so folks don't have to search for this (and ideally can set that download location to a NAS, for example)?


    BTW, I do like the way you can add asset packages at project creation time. Nice.

    I have a similar Issue: when I install a new Unity version via Unity HUB and Uninstall it leaving maybe the more recent one which I previously installed, it breaks all the "open with Unity" links from the Store, since it tries to open a version that's no longer installed.

    "If you have a firewall, or proxy running go into the settings and allow these ports: 80 and 443"

    If you have Skype running, kill it. It worked for me. Skype hijacks those ports by default.

    I found a solution to a problem like the one described above.


    In my case, the issue was that I had "Play mode" enabled/on in Unity Editor. It seems that for some reason it didn't allow downloading assets during that time.


    So, make sure your play mode is off.
