What happens if you try to add the Contour filter from the toon shader UI? Is there anything in the log (console)?

I wonder what happens if you remove or rename the plugins/C4DtoA/c4dtoa.mtd file.

Also it would be interesting to see if the filter is listed when you run kick from the command line (C4D_DIR is your Cinema 4D folder):

C4D_DIR/arnold/bin/kick -nodes n

All good with that version here:

Maybe something is wrong with your installation? The toon shader appears fine, right?

yes, no problem with the toon shader appears at all. I installed twice in last week but nothing helped with the problem. it's so confusing.
