  • $\begingroup$ Please elaborate on the steps you are taking. From the screenshot it appears you are trying to install the blender_osm addon by clicking on install and choosing the __init__.py file. Which will either do nothing, or break blender. What you want to do is copy the blender_osm folder into your USER/addons folder Related $\endgroup$ – batFINGER Aug 9 '18 at 18:09
  • $\begingroup$ Thank you so much for you help,i tried copying the blender_osm folder into the addons file and it worked out! It appeared after refreshing the list. $\endgroup$ – Alice Ag Aug 9 '18 at 18:17
  • $\begingroup$ Good one. Hitting F8 is another way to refresh the list. (meant to mention) $\endgroup$ – batFINGER Aug 9 '18 at 18:18
  • $\begingroup$ the problem was that no matter what i clicked wether it was the init.py file or the whole folder or the zip nothing would be installed,but after copying it into the add on file it appeared. Thank you :) $\endgroup$ – Alice Ag Aug 9 '18 at 18:18
  • $\begingroup$ Re zip file addons Dragging the file, or For multi-file addons, the addon's folder into blender addon folder is my MO, rather than use install button. $\endgroup$ – batFINGER Aug 9 '18 at 18:22
