    $\begingroup$ I had the same problem. You need to have some small angle of rotation in the leg bones. The IK solver fails when the bones are completely straight. $\endgroup$

Make sure your knee joint is not straight like this. enter image description here

Instead, make it bent a little and all will be well. Just like in the image below. enter image description here
