I'm having issues managing or uploading content through the VRChat SDK

  • Updated

It's possible due to errors in your project or other factors, you may experience issues uploading or managing content through the VRChat SDK. We've compiled some steps to help you troubleshoot these issues.

Before proceeding, make sure that you are using the correct version of Unity that VRChat currently supports. You can find the currently supported version of Unity in our documentation here.

Install the Creator Companion - This is highly recommended!

  • You can also install our new Creator Companion here - which will help you get all set up for making Avatars or Worlds. This includes downloading the latest SDKs as well as keeping them up-to-date. You can learn more about it in our Creator Companion Docs.


Update your SDK

  1. Download the latest version of the VRChat SDK here - make sure to download the correct SDK for your project!
  2. Close Unity.
  3. Locate your Project folder with Windows Explorer, and find the Assets folder. 
  4. Delete the VRCSDK folder and the VRCSDK.meta file in the Assets folder.
  5. Go into Plugins, and delete the VRCSDK folder and VRCSDK.meta file.
  6. Relaunch Unity, and then re-import the freshly-downloaded SDK by going to Assets, then Import Package, then Custom Package.
  7. Select the new SDK from your file explorer (likely located in your Downloads folder)
  8. Wait for the SDK to load, then click Import in the bottom left. If any files in the list are greyed out/unchecked, and you can't check them, you didn't delete everything you should have, and you will need to start over. 
  9. Wait a minute as the SDK finishes importing.

You can also try creating a new project, importing the VRCSDK, and importing just the things you need to get your upload working.

It may also help to click "Detach" on the Pipeline Manager in your avatar/world descriptor before trying another upload. 


If you are still experiencing issues with the SDK, locate your Unity editor log and send it as an attachment in a Support Ticket. The Editor.log file can be found at this location: C:\Users\username\AppData\Local\Unity\Editor\Editor.log

You can also find the file by pasting this into the address bar of a File Explorer window: %AppData%..\Local\Unity\Editor\
