I have create a first Plugin for Rhino with C++ / MFC and i can successfull run it from our software via COM.
Mainly i have used the cpp-example “SampleAutomation” and “SampleAutomationClient”. Nevertheless i have some questions:
I only want to Run the Plugin if Rhino is finally started, can i check it?
If i run the plugin like in the sample, Rhino is started.
Currently i check “if( RhinoApp().IsAutomated() )” after Plugin is loaded.
Is this OK, or is there any faster way?
For installation i have some issues:
VS 2019 was installed, but when i run install of SDK 6, i have got the message “Install of VS 2017 is needed”. Why?
For testing purposes i am installing (updating) our RhinoPlugin with the *.rhi which i run:
- is it possible to run it silent ?
- can i run it at runtime of Rhino ? - if not, how can i install a missing plugin, if Rhino is runing to ensure our plugin can be used
