Ok so I got things working on my work computer. Coming home, giddy as a june bug to try a few things out, I ran into another error on attempting to run the 'OpenIllustrator' component: 

1. Solution exception:Retrieving the COM class factory for component with CLSID {B0D0A647-983E-485B-9A69-45F0382F0D9C} failed due to the following error: 80040154 Class not registered (Exception from HRESULT: 0x80040154 (REGDB_E_CLASSNOTREG)).

Note the previous comment I did the Unblock with Doodlebug CC 2014 and it worked on Windows 7. At home here I am running Doodlebug CC 2015 with Illustrator v. 2015.3.1 release on Windows 10. 

Shot in the dark: maybe needs a namespace declaration to work with Windows 10? 

Thoughts on a solution?

Hi Michael, 

Thanks for your feedback. The issue was not the folder structure but instead, I had to Unblock the .zip folder prior to extracting the files. (Doodlebug_CC2015 > Right Click > Properties > Unblock.) Then extract and copy both the .dll and .gha files into your Grasshopper 'Components' folder. 

Hope that helps any future people that run into the same issue. 

Cheers!

Hi Tim, I ran into that issue myself.  I found I needed to place the Doodlebug.gha and IllustratorInterop.dll files inside a new 'Doodlebug' folder within the grasshopper Components folder.

Hi Andrew, Here is a quick screen capture per my comment below.

Hi Andrew,

Excited to try my hand at Doodlebug! Right out of the gate though I'm getting an error in Grasshopper on the Open Illustrator Component: 
"1. Solution exception:Could not load file or assembly 'IllustratorInterop, Version=1.0.0.0, Culture=neutral, PublicKeyToken=null' or one of its dependencies. The system cannot find the file specified."

Is this a sort of bridge/key component that opens the door to Illustrator to work? If not, is it possible to access an Illustrator document directly from the File Path location? 

Let me know if we can get this straightened out when you get a few minutes. 

Thanks!

First, thanks to release those plugins freely !

And second, I was wondering how you achieve something like this animation ?

I downloaded the plugin but I really don't understand a thing...

In response to the COM errors, I Just ran into that issue today.  I am using a virtualized version of Illustrator.  I installed a trial version of illustrator on my local machine and the tool worked correctly, no COM error.  Installing the trial version also made the Adobe Illustrator Type Libraries available in visual studio, which was previously missing.  

So it appears that in order for this tool to work, you need a local installation of Illustrator on your C: drive.

Hi

I am also getting the following error:

1. Solution exception:Retrieving the COM class factory for component with CLSID {B0D0A647-983E-485B-9A69-45F0382F0D9C} failed due to the following error: 80040154 Class not registered (Exception from HRESULT: 0x80040154 (REGDB_E_CLASSNOTREG)).

Running Adobe CC 2015.3.0

What should I do?

Hi Andrew,

same error here with Ai CS6, ie :

1. Solution exception:La récupération de la fabrique de classes COM pour le composant avec le CLSID {B0D0A647-983E-485B-9A69-45F0382F0D9C} a échoué en raison de l'erreur suivante : 80040154 Classe non enregistrée (Exception de HRESULT : 0x80040154 (REGDB_E_CLASSNOTREG)).

Best - SP
