      If you have Ares Project. Then open Kodi > Add-ons > Package Installer Box icon > Install from Repo > Ares Project > Video Add-ons > select add-ons from the list. Hope this helps.

    I have ares project and ares wizard installed. When I went back to use the wizard keeps telling me its not installed . I’ve redone the ares install over and over again still saying its not installed. After it says ares project installed . What gives been messing with this shit for days man . I give tf up

    • Dave says:

      Tony, I feel your pain man. This has been driving me nuts! Like you I’ve uninstalled, re-installed, tried every source available all to no avail. At least now I know it’s not just me. It was suggested that I update to the latest version of Kodi to fix it but doing so will wipe out my build and I don’t have it backed up. If you or anyone else come up with a soloution please post it here.

    • Nick Michaelson says:

      Hello Tony, you might want to upgrade your Kodi to 17.3 or 17.4. This would help you install Ares Project and Ares Wizard correctly. You can easily install Kodi Krypton 17.4 without losing your Builds and add-ons. When installing the new Kodi, it asks for your permission that it will overwrite your existing Kodi but your settings and library data will remain intact. So, technically you won’t lose any data. This has been tried and tested.

      • André says:

        I’m having that same problem.
        I have the latest build on kodi, and unistalled/installed ares several times still can’t solve the problem.
        I even tried this solution: Didn’t work for me either.
        Rebooted router and the system, according to a suggestion from a Ares staff member. Didn’t work either.
        They told me to check Firewall/Anti-virus, everything was well configured.
        Still haven’t found a solution. Waiting for the Ares staff members to help me on this one.

        • admin says:

          Hello Andre, may be your router does not support this add-on. We have checked Ares by installing and uninstalling on many occasions but it works fine for us. Look at this screenshot which will confirm that Ares is working fine.

  5. Offilia Maitre says:

    Hey installed the new Kodi 17.4 and the Ares builds is not working keeps telling me about “502 “ can you help ??

    • Nick Michaelson says:

      Hey, Ares Builds may have problems while installation. You can try Ares Wizard if you want to install many add-ons. If there’s any specific add-on you want to install, please do let us know.
