Crash on opening Rhino, opening Recent file

Like the title says, I have been having issues with Rhino just closing when I click a recent file to open while Rhino is opening. Rhino just closes a few seconds after clicking the Recent file image, as though I never opened Rhino. If I open Rhino again and do the same thing, sometimes it works fine, other times it crashes again. Usually, if I let Rhino fully open then it won’t crash, but not all the time. Here is my systeminfo:

Hi Devin - by this do you mean you wait till Rhino opens behind the splash before picking a file, or you wait until the splash is gone then open a file from the File menu? In any case, it is worth trying this all without the ‘ConnecterPlugIn’ Please disable that plug-in in Options > Plug-ins page and then close Rhino and reopen it. Any different?


Hi Pascal,

I meant if I wait for Rhino to open, splash disappears, and then I open the file through File > Open. Sometimes if I do that it will still crash, and sometimes it will crash if I go to Help > About and then click a recent file.

I have disabled the Connector PlugIn, closed and reopened Rhino and everything seems to be fine for the moment. I will report back if the issue reappears.


Hi Pascal,

It still crashes after disabling the ConnectorPlugin.
