Hi guys. I'm new to Kodi, so please bare with me. I recently updated to 17.1 on my Firestick. Everything was working fine, until I accidentally installed a skin that I didn't like. I cleared my Kodi data via AppStarter and started reloading everything. When loading Ex**us, upon install I was getting the error:

"the dependency on script module metahandler version"

It seems that some addons would work fine, but others refused to install. I uninstalled Kodi completely, and once again installed 17.1, but the problem persists. Any ideas on what I screwed up here?

TIA

Moe

BTW I checked the log, and the complete error is: "The dependency on script.module.metahandler version 1.0.0 could not be satisfied"

I'm having the exact same issue. Hopefully someone will have a solution.
I figured it out. The solution was to install Indigo and use that to install my addons.

That worked for installing the addons. But none of the addons seem to work. I can open Ex**us and there's nothing there. What about for you?

Fix for this

So I had the same problem. I installed through Indigo and all came up blank. I fixed it by doing: Main Screen > Add ons > Add-ons Package Installer > Install from Repository > Video Add Ons > Ex**us (basically the last step of Ex**us install as if were not broken). Where the install button is it may show a Blue Arrow for pending, if does no worries either way- still just click the Update icon and update it. Once updated you should be all set and should see all movies, etc.

I think I found a temporary fix for Ex**us. Go to your Logs in settings, find the log for Ex**us, click it, click Enable then Run/Open, it should be able to run but the first selections on the Ex**us menu wouldn't show any letters, just click any bullets and figure out what it is yourself.

Hope this helps!

If anyone's still not got it working. This is how I did it after translating this reply :)

1) I added the repo via .zip file, install Ex**us from the repo as usual until the error occurred.
2) Install Indigo add-on from "begin here" section on Ex**us repo. Install Exodos from Video-addons. (you're then left with a working Ex**us, but the menus are blank)
3) Retry the Ex**us install from repo as in step 1 (everything works as expected).

This worked for me, seems that the missing part from the normal installation is installed from Indigo method, so that fixes the issue missing dependency.

If anyone's found a proper fix, let me know?
