Known Issues

In some cases, it is possible to get App Manager into a state where everything is in a "waiting" state. If you close App Manager, it will not give you any prompts stating applications installations are in progress. When you open App Manager again, you will see installations are all still "waiting". This can be resolved by the following:

  1. Close App Manager
  2. Open file explorer, browse to C:\ProgramData\zSpace\Cache\win32\core. ProgramData is generally a hidden folder by Windows. You may need to type the location into the address bar as shown in the following screen shot.
    • AppManagerStatesQueueu.png
