Where you have parts made up of two or more meshes, if you only add manual supports to one of the meshes, then the auto-generation routine will still create supports for the meshes where you have no manual supports defined. The way I get round this is to set the support pillar resolution in your pro...

Re: 4.1 Hangs During Install

Yes there is. Do what the guys in support advise you to do. Which is what Support for the paid-for software is all about!
