After my company did some Windows updates my Grasshopper won’t open, crashing Rhino 7.
It always gets stuck loading Ladybug or Honeybee User Objects.
So far we’ve tried the following to fix but with no luck:
Update Rhino 7 to latest version
Delete all User Objects from AppData/Roaming/Grasshopper
Add Ladybug/Honeybee User Objects from a working Rhino 7 on another PC
I also looked into Ladybug/Honeybee removal tools - can’t use those as my Grasshopper won’t start.
Would love any suggestions or advise on how to solve this.

I tried deleting all Ladybug and Honeybee User Objects but that did not solve the issue.
I am assuming this is to do with Ladybug/Honeybee but it might not be.
Is there step by step guide or something to completely clear all 3rd party Grasshopper plugins from my PC?

Now, I have deleted all 3rd party component files in AppData/Roaming/Grasshopper but when I try to load Gh it still attempts to fetch Honeybee from somewhere else.
What are the paths I should check for any remaining plugin files? I also have Rhino 6 installed.

When you start Grasshopper with the
GrasshopperLoadOneByOne command, the path to the plug-ins will be stated in the dialog box.

You can find the locations of grasshopper special folders by going to

You should be able to uninstall anything you’ve installed with package manager from the
