Grasshopper Component Installation in RHI

In Rhino 6 will you be able to install Grasshopper Components in a RHI file?

Is writing your own MSI installer and/or having users manually copy over .gha the best way to handle Component installations. What are the suggested methods for dealing with shared DLLs between rhp and gha files?

Hi @mnewberg, the Rhino Installer Engine doesn’t support GHA-only packages. However, if you have an RHP (+ DLLs) that can be packaged up into an RHI, then you can also drop a GHA in there too and Grasshopper will find and load it.

and what if I have in the RHI some DLLs called by the RHP and some called by the GHA? is it possible to specify it?


@gennaro, do you mean something like this? (Note that the GHA is in the same directory as the RHP.)

β”œβ”€β”€ marmoset.rhp
β”œβ”€β”€ marmoset_lib.dll
β”œβ”€β”€ marmoset.gha
└── marmoset_ghlib.dll

If so, sure! It will just work. :slight_smile:
