Grasshopper Components are missing

Hi all, really hoping someone could help with this one:

Rhino is working fine, I’ve got my licence running properly (the solution someone gave in 2020), not too sure what happened.

I’m assuming it’s because I tried to open a .gh file from my old computer, which had a lot of plugins installed. Reinstalling most of them, but the issue stays even when I open a new empty file.

Kind regards,

Hi Brigitte -
Please run the Rhino SystemInfo command and copy-paste the result here.

Hi Brigitte -

I’m afraid that running Rhino 6 on Apple Silicon processors is not supported.

Thank you Wim, would the best way to solve this then be to upgrade to Rhino 7?

Because, Rhino itself has no issues, it’s just Grasshopper that doesn’t work.

Hi Brigitte -

You should expect to run into issues with running Rhino 6 on Apple Silicon as well.
You might be lucky that it does what you want so far, but we don’t support it.

You could always download the Rhino 7 evaluation version and try that, but, I’m afraid that, at this point, it might be best to run Rhino 6 on an Intel mac. We are working hard to make Rhino 8 works satisfactory on Apple Silicon but, from what I can tell, Rhino 7 will suffer from the lack of OpenGL support on those machines.

Hi Wim,

Appreciate the honesty.

Ow…that really sucks! When is Rhino 8 likely to come out? :cold_sweat: Is there any way I could sign up to be a beta tester? :wink:

Kind regards,

Hi Brigitte -

I’ve seen someone mention next year, and while that probably isn’t a bad guess, we don’t operate with strict release dates. We ship when the product is good to go.

You automatically become a beta tester when you buy a license for the latest released version.
I would at least download the evaluation version of Rhino 7 and see if that gets you further than your current situation and take it from there.
