A "W1110" error message usually means that required file is missing. It can almost always be resolved by downloading and reinstalling vRigger from https://vRigger.com/download.
Although less likely, this error will also occur if you do not have permission to write to files in the C:\ProgramData\Iterum\vRigger\Gear folder. This may require that a system administer changes your permissions to that folder.
If the message continues to be displayed after reinstalling vRigger, please contact us for assistance.
