After successfully installing QGIS 2.14 standalone (64 bit), upon startup the processing plugin loaded without problems. Then I uninstalled the previous version 2.6.1 Brighton and discovered that upon startup of version 2.14.1 the plugin doesn't load anymore.
I've tried reinstalling and downgrading processing version (as suggested by the help form) but nothing changed.
By the way what's the reason for delivering in version 2.14.1 a processing plugin version (2.12.99) newer than the one avalaible on the official repository (2.12.2)?
I understand that the settings for this plugin are complex but an effort is necessary to create a more clean procedure for installing it and to avoid or to limit dependancies between different versions of QGIS installed on a pc.
My personal opinion is that if "processing" is a core plugin (the development team has recognized it as a useful set of functions) it shouldn't be possible for a user to install or uninstall it.

The error message is:

Couldn't load plugin processing due to an error when calling its initGui() method

WindowsError: [Error 5] Accesso negato: u'C:\\\\Program Files\\\\QGIS Brighton'

  • Status changed from Open to Feedback

From error I can see that you have Processing plugin in your user directory (C:/Users/Antonio/.qgis2/python/plugins). Removing it should fix your problem

I have deleted the folder "processing" within the C:\\Users\\Antonio\\.qgis2\\python\\plugins directory but the error is the same.
There is still a connection with a previous installation of QIGS Brighton 2.6.1
