Package manager doesn't show, and errors in Unity 2019.1a12 if Parent folder has a comma in name

    I created a fresh project (regular 3D, 2019.1a12) in C:\Unity Dev\Study, Learning\

    (FYI, my project folder was "Extending Post Processing", so the full path was C:\Unity Dev\Study, Learning\Extending Post Processing\Assets\.... ")

    After creating project, there were errors, and the package manager wouldn't show.

    I noticed one of the errors mentioned it could not find C:\Unity Dev\Study

    So I removed the comma, reloaded the project, and everything was fine.

    Hopefully that helps!

    Hi @Flurgie,

    Yes, this is really helpful! We will try to reproduce on our end and fix the issue.

    Thanks for reporting this issue.

    Something else useful to know: using accented letters in folders produces exactly the same problem. I had to rename my base directory from "Développer" to "Faire" so that Unity accepts building my project for the WebGL. Curiously enough, it didn't have problems building the PC version of the same project...

    Conclusion: do not use special characters at all when you create your Unity directory; make it simple. ;)

    Hi @Flurgle,

    Could you please provide the Editor.log file with the error? I created a project with commas and did not get any errors. We would need to see the errors you get to investigate further.

    Thank you
