I'm in Maya 2018 on Windows. I used OVDB around a month ago. And to enable it, I simply enabled the plugin .mll file.

However, recently the plugin was randomly disabled, and everytime I try to enable it in the plugin editor, I get this error.

// Error: file: C:/Program Files/Autodesk/Maya2018/scripts/others/pluginWin.mel line 290: initializePlugin function failed (BE_OpenVDB)

I'm not sure why this is happening, as it worked previously, and suddenly isn't.

Yes, that doesn't seem to be the issue.

OVDB needs Bifrost dynamic libraries the rest of the libraries are in Maya itself.Check you have the correct path to the version of Maya and OVDB in OVDB.mod.
Do you use third-party plugins?Try disabling them and loading OVDB.There may be conflicts with the same id nodes.
If this doesn't help let me know. Write me besha1@mail.ru.
