Thank you, but my issue is I dont have the ad on. Like- I cant disable it, because I dont have it. I am getting this error when I am trying to download (not update) the ad on.


Can you try downloading Anki Version 2.1.64 and try downloading the addon? That is the version we recommend currently, it looks like you are on 2.1.65

I have switched to 2.1.64… now when I enter the code for ad on I get a message that says “no updates available”. It no longer gives me an error, but says no updates available and it doenst appear in my add ons

Can you take a screenshot of your addon screen and the error that appears?

Also let us know what code you are inputting for the addon

This is the photo

I am using code: 1322529746

Ok so I figured it out…

I had to do the following:
tools–> add on → locate files → delete 1322529746 folder, then reinstall after
