I know you might not want to hear this if you are on a slow internet connection, but I think your best bet is to delete the version of MakeHuman you have and download again. Aranuvir is right that the log does not look like a normal sequence of a "crashed program".

I am reasonably confident that it was not the fact that you were looking at the license file, but it seems something "bad happened" that is most likely to be fastest to repair by a new download. Delete all the old stuff first so there is not confusion about what is old and what is new. Then you can install in the very same directory.

One other thing I note. The log refers to "D:/Programme/makehuman-1.1.1-win32/data/litspheres/skinmat_eye.png" This tells me you did not install MakeHuman on the normal "system disk". Is you D:/ drive mapped to a location that is available to the program? Is it a local drive or a network drive? If it is a USB drive, is it conceivable that it got mapped to a different drive letter than it had previously when you created a shortcut? It seems that you are doing something unusual that you haven't shared with us based on this line and the IOError: [Errno 13] Permission denied: u'C:/Users/.../Documents/makehuman/v1/cache/eyelashes_filecache.mhc' .

So there is no confusion, you certainly can run MakeHuman from a non-system drive. I do it all the time. I'm asking only so I can have a reasonable context for thinking of things that could have happened to you that I wouldn't have factored in if you were vanilla standard.

Thank you, ...
Deleting the folder, has solved the problem.
C:\Users\...\Documents\makehuman

that's why it did not work, with the new installation.

Hello, is this thread still valid? Looks like it was a topic more than 1 year ago, but I got same problem these days and still couldn't get it through by all means.

I'm running Windows 10 pro, I couldn't launch makehuman.exe (v1.1.1), everytime it lauches, I got "Fatal Error! Fail to execute script __init__".
What I've tried already:
1. Re-downloaded the lateast version --makehuman-1.1.1-win32.zip (by firefox) from this site multiple time to see if downloads are good, I assume ok
2. Tried both 7-zip and WinZip Universal (program provided by win10 by default) to extract the contents
3. Tried different locations (as root folder) to extract to, like:
D:/MakeHuman
C:/Program Files (x86)/MakeHuman
C:/Program Files/MakeHuman
4. Before launching, cleared previous Documents/makehuman (including v1 folder) which is to be created again by launching.
5. Re-installed python, now I'm using python 3.7.1
6. Updated the the root folder perssion (e.g. D:/MakeHuman), that is the folder's properties/security tab, giving Full Control to all users and applying this to all subfolder and subfiles
But none of those things work for me, I'm still getting "Fatal Error! Fail to execute script __init__". And I'm not able see any log file, the Documents/makehuman/v1/python_out.txt is always empty (0 KB) while nothing in the 'data' folder either. No other files look like a log file.

By the way, I was using this program (v1.1.1) before, long time ago (probably 1 year ago, can't remember clearly) and it was working fine at that time. The only difference I can come up with is I was running Win10 Family version, I just upgraded to Win10 pro this year.

Could anyone suggest and help? What else I can try?
Thanks and appreciate any help in advance.

There shouldn't really be any issues with running on windows 10 per se. Something else must be wrong, such as an antivirus program wrongly putting python files in quarantine.

What you could do is try the upcoming version instead, it comes with a proper installer. Download a file called makehuman-community-*-win32.zip from http://download.tuxfamily.org/makehuman/nightly/, unzip, and run the exe installer.

With some luck you should at least get a better error message.

Note that after using the installer above, MH should be started from the start menu, rather than by manually navigating to the installation folder and clicking things there.

Ah! Thank you, that community 1.2.0a1 version simply works for me like a charm! It launches well now though I've not yet tried more operations.
But really cool to get it opened and worked again. Thank you.

Note that this is a pre-release though, and some things might not be working properly. It is, for example, known that the FBX export has problems with the rig in this version.

Actually that FBX problem is a pending issue. The current version is working as well or bad as the old one did. (there are also problems with the scaling in FBX ...)
