Hi I am trying to build .dll to program files, rhino wip grasshopper components folder but I get denial from visual studio:
Severity Code Description Project File Line Suppression State
Error Unable to copy file “obj\Debug\NGonsCore.dll” to “C:\Program Files\Rhino WIP\Plug-ins\Grasshopper\Components\NGonsCore.dll”. Access to the path ‘C:\Program Files\Rhino WIP\Plug-ins\Grasshopper\Components\NGonsCore.dll’ is denied. NGonsCore
Is there a way to go around this?

In this way I also don’t have any trouble with dated copies of the .gha files, and so on.
Using Rhino’s install folder as a destination for plug-in or Grasshopper assembly builds is a bad idea.
For Grasshopper, I’d set your output folder to here:
