      I cant even get it to show up on a clean install on a brand new computer.

    2. Steve

      Aother and probably easier way is to simply install MyGica Media Centre and this is where you install the Crew!

      Worked PERFECTLY! I tried to disable and uninstall everything to do with TV Addons! I was unable to find a solution that would let me keep my addons and settings! Your Roll Back idea worked PERFECTLY! Way To Go Dude! I strolled to the dependencies and found URL resolver and rolled the update back to —–09 and WOW! I easily uninstalled INDIGO! The crew is working!

    4. Al

      If you go to Settings
      Then System
      Then Expert
      Then Add-Ons
      Then Manage-Dependencies
      Scroll down to URLResolver
      Select Update
      Roll back to earlier version, I went to 5.0.39
      Turn off auto update
      Close Kodi
      Restart Kodi

      Then go and uninstall the Indigo add-on
      Close Kodi
      Restart Kodi

      Now Crew works

        I am using the “Confluence Skin” and all the directions are similar but appear very different on KODI! To those who still use “Estuchy” and “Estuary”, they may be more similar to the directions Al gave! I like the look and feel of the Confluence Skin. It is easier to move around in Kodi!

        Thanks Al
        You need that procedure you added as the written instructions from Crew will allow Indigo to Disable the plugin a minute or two after its Enabled.
        I also tried updating manually the 3 available versions of URL Resolver 5.1.1 and all contain the Indigo malware. Your correct as 5.039 is the only safe version to use.

    6. Domingo15

      No disable opciĆ³n. Where Can I find the dependecy section?

    7. thewad

      I don’t have disable on any of the addons and when going to dependencies , I cannot remove indigo as it is being used by many addons (so it says)

      1. Chris

        what dependencies? Right click on the icon and choose disable. I managed to do it by following the instructions.
        You will have to give more information if these do not work for you. What do you see when you right on the indigo icon?

    8. Johnson 3RB

      It worked for me! Thanks! The Crew is back in my Kodi!

    9. Orlando

      I did all of this and tried to open The Crew addon, but it still won’t open. Still says “Chexk the log for more information”.

      1. Cups

        You have a dependency that is not installing. That is a separate problem, usually you can install the dependency not installing by clicking on it in the error log.

      2. martin kerrigan

        go into dependency remove url resolver ,then in programmes remove indigo reinstall crew
