algorithmic modeling for Rhino
Hello, Hopefully some here can help with this:
Just tried installing grasshopper_wip_20110705b and i'm getting the following error:
Exception occured in plug-in Grasshopper
Unable to load DLL 'rhcommon_c': The application has failed to start because its side-by-side configuration is incorrect.
attached is a screenshot of the full error message:
Running Vista via bootcamp
Rhino Version 4.0 SR 8.0
I installed it today, and haven't updated it yet...
The error is because Grasshopper is trying to call a method in the Rhino SDK that doesn't exist. This method has been there for a long time and as far as I can work out should still be there now. This would mean that you are running a very old Rhino5 beta, or at least a very old RhinoCommon.dll file inside your Rhino5 beta. It's a bit puzzling.
What is the date on your Rhino5 banner?
Oh... It shows 18-May-2010...It must be an old version...
I'm new to Rhino, so how to update it ?
Rhino5 betas should update automatically, but it's possible this is blocked by a fire-wall or somesuch. You can get it here: http://download.rhino3d.com/rhino/5.0/beta/changes/
I'll try it.
Thanks a lot.
I have the same error but am running windows 8. How do i solve the problem
Side-by-side configuration errors occur because you don't have the required Microsoft C++ runtimes installed. This should never happen on Rhino5 as Rhino5 includes these files when it installs, but Rhino4 does not.
