When i try to enable Node Wrangler addon an error occurs:

Report: Error

Exact steps for others to reproduce the error
Based on the default startup or an attached .blend file (as simple as possible).

  1. Open Blender
  2. User Preferences
  3. Add-ons
  4. Try to enable node wrangler

I know Node Wrangler works in 2.8 (beta) BUT i'm learning with add-ons only aviable in 2.79. In 2.8 other add-ons i use doesn't work

Where did you get your Blender build?
For some reason a Blender 2.8 version of Node Wrangler is in you 2.79 addons path.

Do you have an idea why?

I've downloaded all my builds from blender foundation site. I've downloaded lates version of node wrangler from github.
I've played with different variations by updating manually (overwriting it in addon folder). My last try was: i took node_wrangler_py from addon folder of 2.8 Blender and copied it to addon folder of 2.79 Blender. BUT I need to stress thist out that the error existed before I've tried 2.8 version of blender.

I've reinstalled Blender 2.79 (mainly overwrited whole addons folder with the original). The error of two existing files appeared (one in program folder, second in Roaming folder). Deleted the latter and it worked like a charm.

Thank you for pointing out my mess with the files :)
